Yesterday, the 12th of March, RINKA Ireland was awarded with the coveted Business All-Star Accreditation, at an award ceremony in Croke Park and it was a fantastic day! There were 90 CEO’s in attendance, with inspiring guest speakers including Dr Briga Hynes of the Kemmy Business School, Ms Mary Mitchell O’Connor, Minister of State for Higher Education and Mr Michael Dawson of

There were stories of great success shared in the room, with the overall message being ‘never give up’! It doesn’t matter if we fail, it’s what we do next that counts.

Over 450 businesses applied for accreditation but only 90 were successful, RINKA being one of them. A highlight of the day for me, was being invited onstage to discuss my experiences of franchising through RINKA. It was a real honour!

The award accredits best-in-class in Irish businesses and in order to display the Business All-Star Symbol, RINKA had to meet the highest standards of verified performance, trust and customer centricity and successfully navigate the Foundation’s six-step adjudication process.
