What our franchisees say about us...

Discover what our franchise network of local specialists have to say about their experience.

I joined Images in 2013 and I have loved every minute. I also love the interaction with teachers when you visit schools. Seeing the reaction of pupils and parents at the exhibitions is very special. The initial training was very thorough with lots of support at my first few exhibitions. You are provided with most of the necessary equipment and enough stock to get you started.

Schools love our service so bookings are easy to obtain and many schools book us every year. So don’t delay ask for an appointment to discuss running your own franchise now!

Jane Owen

Since starting with Images, I have found passion in my work. This eagerness to thrive has motivated me to kick bad lifestyle habits in order to take my business to the next level. The support from Head Office is unmatched.

In a short period of time, I have booked three exhibitions and I am in contact with a further five other schools which I am confident will soon book. I love this company and look forward to my future here.

Daniel Nuttall

I became an Images Franchisee in 2002 and staged over 1,300 exhibitions all over Ireland.

Every school is different, every exhibition has it’s own character and whether it’s a school I’m visiting for the first time or a school I’m visiting for the tenth time I still find myself looking forward to the challenge of putting on the best exhibition I can so that the school community has a great event.

Add in the benefits of having weekends, Xmas & summer off and what’s not to like?

Justin Gillespie

Since starting as a franchise the experience has been wonderful from the initial training course where you learn all the aspects of what being a franchise will entail and all the technical side of running the franchise to booking my first exhibition the support has been second to none.

Any questions I have had or help I've needed the support has been there instantly. I'm really looking forward to expanding and growing my area over the upcoming years and what the future will hold.

Duncan Robinson

I’ve been an Images School Art Exhibition Franchisee since November 2009. The Images business model has been developed and refined over the years to deliver a service that is a pleasure both for me to provide and for schools to witness.

Working in the school environment was a big change for me at first but I now take great pleasure in providing schools with an event that pleases them so much. I’ve never heard the word WOW! used so much before the time I became an Images School Art Exhibition Franchisee.
