Cartridge Green has been nominated as finalists in four separate categories at the 2012 Ulster Bank Irish Franchise Association Awards.

Nik Healy, Director of Franchising at Cartridge Green, said: “We’ve worked very hard this year to drive the brand forward through the promotion of our Club Cartridge Green product, the world’s first ink subscription that gives members a brand new printer and unlimited ink for just €12.99 a month.”

The company, which provides printing solutions and supplies, has been nominated as Franchise of the Year (service), Best Emerging Franchise, Best Indigenous Irish Franchise, and for the Most Innovative Marketing Award.

Cartridge Green has 13 stores operating through Ireland and has identified 16 more towns and cities where an opportunity exists. It is also actively recruiting franchise operators in the UK and plans to have give stores opened there by the end of this year.

Healy added: “There has never been a greater level of interest in providing the print solutions we offer.

“The Club Cartridge Green offering in particular has caught the imagination of home and small business users. We offer new equipment and a manageable fixed cost alternative which allows users to print what they want rather than what they think they can afford.

“Our franchise model provides sustainable repeat revenues, and we are pleased this has been recognised by the judges behind the Irish Franchise Association Awards.”
