Riverford Organic franchise delivers fresh organic produce to local people by the most direct route possible. Having won a multitude of awards including the Observer ethical product of the decade 2015, Riverford Organic is a full member of the British Franchise Association.
For many years, this territory has been run by Riverford, but the time is right for a franchisee to take over. The right person could make a fantastic impact in the region and capitalise on the 5% retail growth over the 2016/17 financial year, with an additional 3% growth during the 2017/18 financial year so far.
Riverford began delivering to homes throughout the Midlands and East Anglia from a base in Peterborough in 2005. Since then, this territory has developed incredibly quickly. In 2008 Sacrewell Farm near Peterborough finished converting to organic and became Riverford’s permanent base in the East of England; the territory benefits hugely from containing the farm.
There are plenty of opportunities to capitalise on the growing number of consumers that are passionate about good food and are actively looking for great tasting, ethically sourced produce delivered to their homes. This can be achieved by building a community around the product/business and executing a broad range of marketing activities, including attending local shows and events.
The road network is efficient, serviced mainly by the A1, A47 and A15. There is a good balance of urban (high round density) and rural (high spend) demographics.
With an asking price of £59,000 and a 12-month turnover of £782,845, this represents an exceptional opportunity to acquire an ethical and rewarding franchise business in a fast-growing business sector.
The cost of this franchise opportunity is exclusive of Riverford's launch set up and training fee (£5,500+VAT).
