The Zip Yard wins Retail Franchise of the Year at Irish Franchise Association Awards

A massive congratulations are in order for our friends at The Zip Yard who have just scooped the coveted award for Retail Franchise of the Year at the 2023 Irish Franchise Association Awards.

Ireland’s only clothing alterations and garment repair franchise, with 23 stores across the Republic of Ireland, has created over 200 jobs since its inception in 2009 – all the while providing an incredible service for all our alteration needs.

It’s no surprise that they emerged victorious at last week’s ceremony, which took place on Friday April 21st at Dunboyne Castle, Co. Meath.

The awards recognise excellence and leadership in the Irish franchise industry and is the only event completely dedicated to those working in franchising in Ireland.

Caroline Wallace, MD of The Zip Yard said: “We are absolutely delighted to be honoured with this award. It’s a true acknowledgement of the hard work and dedication our team at head office along with what our franchisees contribute daily. This award not only recognises all we have achieved but it serves to highlight our incredible retail brand.”

The Zip Yard were also finalists in three other categories – Sustainability Champion of the Year, Employee Star of the Year and Community Champion of the Year.

So well deserved!

What’s more is that The Zip Yard are once again joining us as one of our amazing sponsors for this year’s Platinum VIP Style Awards.

The brand are sponsoring the Best Dressed On The Night award, and we have no doubt that there’s bound to be some hearty competition among that category.
