Riverford Organic Franchise for Sale in Nottingham East

Nottingham East

16th October 2017

Riverford Organic Farmers franchise for sale in Nottingham East for £55,000

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 Nottingham franchise commenced trading in 2005 and grew initially with a strong focus on Nottingham and its suburbs. The business has since developed with a belief in excellent customer service, both on delivery and in support areas, plus high levels of organisation to ensure customer requirements are met consistently.

Currently deliveries are made to 450 - 520 households a week using two vans, with a need for a third vehicle in Christmas week. Rounds are reviewed on an ongoing basis to manage efficiency and keep fuel costs down.

There is a high quality, engaged customer base. Over 900 customers have received a delivery in the last three months.

The territory covers a large and diverse area of Nottingham, Newark, Mansfield, Southwell, Retford and the rural areas in between.

Daily deliveries are picked up from the collection hub in Costock to the south of Nottingham. The territory is well serviced by a good road network.

There are plenty of opportunities throughout the area to build on the existing customer base, utilising local shows and markets such as in West Bridgford, Sherwood and Bingham along with food festivals held at Nottingham Castle, Newstead Abbey, and the popular Green Festival at Nottingham Arboretum.

There remains plenty of potential to develop the customer base further across the whole area, especially with a growing network of local artisan/maker markets that has so far been untapped.

There is also a strong food culture, particularly around Nottingham suburbs, and plenty of support for independent food businesses such as Riverford.

The cost of this franchise opportunity is £55,000 - all prices are exclusive of Riverford's launch set up and training fee (£5,500+VAT).
