Kendlebell – Who we are

Kendlebell is a well established, highly successful franchised business, which has been operating in the UK since 1997. David Kelly and Tom Shanahan (pictured opposite), two successful Irish businessmen, own the rights to the Republic of Ireland for the Kendlebell franchise. The corporate head office and franchise support office are located in Fairview, Dublin. The initial franchise established in Fairview has been very successful and Kendlebell won the Best Emerging Franchise Award at the 2007 Irish Franchise Awards. Since then, a number of franchise offices have opened and begun trading. Kendlebell is in the process of growing its franchise network by selling franchises to suitable candidates throughout the Republic of Ireland.

“When I was looking for a new business opportunity in 2007, I was introduced to Kendlebell. Having met with the Kendlebell team and learned about the range of services Kendlebell offices provide, I immediately knew it was for me. From a standing start in October 2007, more than two years on, Kendlebell Naas employs five people who look after the needs of more than 180 clients and we continue to go from strength to strength. The support and guidance of the Kendlebell team has helped me grow my business and will continue to do so in the future.”
