The Riverford Bedford territory has been operating since Riverford started growing at their farm, near Peterborough. Since then the Bedford franchise has developed into the profitable business it is today, generating growth in turnover and average customer spend across the nine year period.
The franchise operates within a large area covering Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire, incorporating large areas of rolling rural countryside, and more densely populated urban areas to provide a balanced geography mix. The area includes the affluent market towns of Ampthill, Woburn sands and St Neots.
The territory is well serviced by a good road network branching off the M1 corridor, as well as good rail links into London, making the territory attractive to London commuters, and of course Riverford's loyal customer base who love their tasty veg.
This franchise provides the perfect opportunity for a motivated and ambitious individual or couple to develop a proven and successful business. There are plenty of opportunities throughout the franchise area 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 direct to their homes.
With an asking price of only £60,000 and a 12-month turnover of £492,730 this represents an exceptional opportunity to acquire an ethical and rewarding franchise in a sector that is currently growing at 9.1%*
