Riverford franchisees, Andrew Wilson and Susan Taylor, are celebrating a decade of deliveries.
A Decade Of Deliveries For Riverford Franchisee

Andrew Wilson

It’s a big month for Riverford franchisees, Andrew Wilson and Susan Taylor, who are not only celebrating their 10th year anniversary as franchise owners but also a big business development.

A neighbouring franchise recently came on the market offering the couple an opportunity to expand their territory for the second time. Originally delivering to Bradford and Harrogate, they first extended deliveries into Halifax and have now added the Leeds and Wakefield areas to their delivery network.

Andrew said:
"Due to the resounding success of the Harrogate, Halifax and Bradford areas, when this opportunity came up, we jumped at it."

The expansion will provide them with an additional 30% business growth. When Andrew and Susan first invested in a Riverford franchise, they were delivering 50 veg boxes per week; now they are delivering up to 800 boxes per week. They’ve gone from an owner driver operation to a team of five drivers.

Both have come from families who grew their own produce, which cemented their belief that fresh and organic is best. This also lead them to starting up their own business within the organic industry.

Andrew added:
"Riverford ticked all the boxes for us; organic, great quality fresh produce, minimal packaging and great customer service. We thought, we can do that! So we did. A decade on and we haven’t looked back."
