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.
The North Gloucestershire Riverford franchise offers an excellent opportunity to run a well organised, profitable and efficient business within an exceptional part of the country.
Established 15 years ago, the territory boasts a very supportive and engaged customer base with scope for expansion and improvement. Currently the territory is owned and operated by an in-house Riverford team.
Operating in a well populated county including the city of Gloucester and the spa town of Cheltenham, along with the Tewkesbury and the Cotswolds, the territory provides a large potential customer base with prospects for growth. With many food festivals operating through the county, major events held and a strong local show and event calendar, the prospective purchasers will need to be driven, organised and enthusiastic to maintain the levels of local awareness and brand appreciation within the territory.
Growth has been consistent since 2008; however, the territory has potential for far higher growth and the successful candidate will be investing in a proven and successful business upon which to build.
Recent activity has been very much customer service focussed, with priority given to delivering the produce to customers in a timely, accurate and friendly way. This has increased customer loyalty and average spend. Local marketing has been fairly small-scale. There is scope to increase local activity and engage with the community by attending shows and events to promote the brand.
In summary, the North Gloucester franchise offers a great opportunity to run a profitable, established business in a desirable location with plenty of potential for growth.
The cost of this franchise opportunity is £40,000 - all prices are exclusive of Riverford's launch set up and training fee (£5,500+VAT).
