Retail franchise, Eason, has opened five new franchised stores and has recently celebrated its 125th anniversary.

The stores have been launched in Mullingar, Balbriggan, Kilkenny, Carlow and Listowel, bringing the total number of franchise stores operating to 22.

Following a relaunch of the Eason franchise concept in the Irish Franchise Magazine, enquiries for the business have been “flowing in”, with numerous potential franchise owners now on the books.
