Scott Taylor and Marja Boyce are the latest franchisees to join Riverford’s network of veg box delivery teams, taking over the Plymouth area.
Both Scott and Marja have left careers in the education sector. Scott was working as the director of studies at a language school and Marja as a university lecturer teaching business and finance.
Having been Riverford customers for many years, they both share a passion for good food and healthy eating. Marja ran an organic box scheme in Sri Lanka so has some previous experience in the industry. This shared interest led them to consider taking on a Riverford franchise.
Scott told us:
"Riverford is a household name; it has won numerous awards and is a leader in its field, yet it still holds that very important ‘family run business’ feel. Marja and I couldn’t think of a more suitable business to run together – it matched our skill set and interests perfectly. We are so excited to have joined the network and will be putting all of our energy into developing our business. We believe we are a great team and are looking forward to working together."
Nigel Loveridge, Riverford’s franchise services manager said:
"We are very pleased that Scott and Marja have joined the team. Together they have a lot of the qualities we look for in franchisees. Throughout the recruitment process they were completely engaged and submerged themselves thoroughly, attending shows and events, spending time with our existing franchisees, on delivery rounds, in the office. They even came to the farm and spent time with various staff members to ensure they fully understood our business, the franchise model and to establish if Riverford was the right business for them. They quickly showed they have the drive, determination and ability to do well. I believe our customers will be in very good hands."
