John Nelligan is the Business Doctors master franchise holder for Northern Ireland. 

A former industrial engineer, John, 41, is no stranger to the world of franchising. In 2011 he bought a territory from high street garment alterations franchise The Zip Yard. Just one year later he also snapped up Galway and became the company's first franchisee with multiple businesses. In 2015, he added Douglas to his portfolio.

One of the company's top performers, John uses his top notch people skills to chair their franchisee committee.

It was experiences gained within this voluntary role that encouraged John to make the move from award-winning franchisee to master franchisor. He now plans to launch three Business Doctors franchises a year, up to a total of 20 across the North and South. Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway are amongst the prime territories earmarked for the first wave of openings.

A serial entrepreneur, John, from County Kerry, previously ran his own successful office supplies company.

In his spare time, John practices and teaches Taekwondo to children, including his three sons.
