Join the movement…

We are extremely proud to have created a revolutionary retail concept that creates enthusiasm, confidence & above all, fantastic income.

We welcome you - Welcome and thank you for your interest in The Source Bulk Foods franchise and giving us the chance to share our story with you...

After opening their first store in Dublin at the end of 2019 with local Irish franchise partner Ken, Mak and Pat, who own the United Kingdom and Ireland Master Franchise, are excited to continue expanding the The Source brand and open up their unique shopping concept to more customers across Ireland.

Coming from diverse career backgrounds Mak and Pat bring valuable expertise that, combined with their passion for zero-waste living and healthy food, has driven amazing growth for The Source Bulk Foods Franchise across the UK and Ireland. Having identified an opportunity for plastic-free bulk food shopping, and subsequently discovering The Source brand while in Australia, Mak and Pat spent a year establishing the brand in the UK before opening in Ireland with a specialised product range catered to the local Irish community.

Our Rathmines store...

At the end of 2019, it was with great excitement that Mak and Pat joined up with a local Irish partner Ken to bring the The Source Bulk Foods to Ireland, with the first store opening in Dublin (Rathmines). The local Dublin community has welcomed our Rathmines store with open arms and have eagerly embraced our zero-waste ethos! Dublin is an incredibly vibrant community and we have loved seeing locals so excited to shop plastic-free and adopt eco-friendly living.

With the incredible success of our Dublin store, we are excited to continue growing The Source Bulk foods in Ireland and look forward to opening more stores in the near future!

A word from our Franchise Partner Ken...

“When I came across The Source Bulk Foods in London, I knew I had to be the first franchisee in Ireland. My experience since opening in 2019 has been joyful and I have loved every single day working with my customers and my wonderful staff, and the support I have received from my franchise partners has been second to none. There is something very special about selling zero waste products and the atmosphere in the Rathmines store is always very calm and peaceful. My store has given me the financial freedom to have the lifestyle I want and I look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with The Source Bulk Foods”

(Ken, owner of the Rathmines store in Dublin)
