Franchising in Northern Ireland is currently valued at £0.3 billion with 24% of all franchise systems present there. Though it lacks behind the majority of the UK, recent years has seen a flurry of franchise activity in the country, mainly through an increase in the presence of franchise systems. As like any UK city, the main cities of Northern Ireland boast a plethora of franchise opportunities.

Northern Island consists of 6 counties, made up of dynamic cities such as Belfast, Londonderry, Lisburn, Newtonabbey and Bangor, all contributing to a population of 1,759,000. Belfast is the capital and the country's largest city, boasting a population of 0.3 million.

Northern Ireland is a country steeped in history, that wants to forget its' troubled past and build upon a vibrant and economically positive future.
