Riverford's Grant Hughes & Elizabet Caminade-Lavault

Grant Hughes and Elizabet Caminade-Lavault are the latest franchisees to join Riverford’s network of veg box delivery teams.

The pair relocated from Zambia in 2016 with their young son and will be delivering to customers within the Chester and Wirral area, which had previously been managed by Riverford’s in house team.

They explained:
"On returning to the UK, it had always been our intention to work for ourselves and run our own business. We focused on franchising opportunities, looking for companies that were successful, had good branding, longevity and had purpose. Riverford stuck out for us, ticking all the right boxes and though we understood it would be hard work we knew it would be something we would enjoy doing.

For us both, one of the over-riding reasons we chose Riverford is due to something we call ‘the buzz’. During our research phase, we spoke to many in the Riverford organisation and their commitment to the business and enjoyment in what they each do was infectious. It made us smile, and gave us ‘the buzz’. Work takes up so much of your time so it’s really important to ensure you enjoy it."

Whilst in Zambia, Grant was manager of a large mixed vegetable farm:
"My involvement in vegetable farming in Zambia gave me direct experience that I felt would transfer over to running a Riverford franchise. I was involved in developing the veg box sales for a portion of the farm’s produce, another reason why I felt drawn to Riverford.

Elizabet and I are firm believers in making a difference, to either something or someone. Riverford’s concept of a fair deal for all adds tremendous marketability to the brand and we know from experience how increasingly important values are in successful businesses. We are very excited about running our own franchise, there are great opportunities for a local veg team to get stuck in and expand Riverford’s market within Chester and Wirral. We intend to transform the territory from a good performing in-house territory to a great performing franchise."
