22nd November 2016

Riverford Organic Franchise For Sale in Manchester South for £42,500

Riverford Organic grows and delivers award-winning fresh organic fruit and veg boxes straight from the farm to homes around the UK.

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 is a full member of the British Franchise Association.

The cost of this franchise opportunity is £42,500- all prices are exclusive of Riverford's launch set up and training fee.

The Manchester South franchise commenced trading in 2008, and initially grew with a strong focus on Stockport and the South Manchester suburbs. The business has experienced some boundary remodelling over the last couple of years. It has developed with a belief in excellent customer service, both on delivery and in support areas, as well as high levels of organisation to ensure that customer requirements are met consistently. There is a high quality, engaged customer base.

The territory covers a large and diverse area of Greater Manchester, North Cheshire, and areas of High Peak. It incorporates rural countryside, and a mix of independent towns such as Macclesfield and Chapel en le Frith. The territory also incorporates many affluent towns and villages south of Manchester, such as Wilmslow, Alderley Edge and Altrincham; the southern suburbs of Manchester; and vibrant areas of commercial and residential central Manchester.

Daily deliveries are picked up from the hub at Irlam to the west of Manchester. The territory is well serviced by a good road network, branching off the nearby M60. Many of the towns and suburbs within the territory have good rail links into Manchester.

There are plenty of opportunities throughout the area to build on the existing customer base utilising shows and events such as The Castlefield Food Festival, and local shows at Alderley Edge, Wilmslow, Poynton, Bramhall and in the Peak District. Over the last few years, the lowest performing round has moved to the 2nd best by building brand awareness at 2 annual shows at Hayfield and Edale in the Peak District.

There remains plenty of potential to develop the customer base further across the whole area, including a growing network of local artisan/maker markets that has so far been untapped. There’s also a strong food culture, particularly around Macclesfield and Manchester suburbs like Chorlton, whose residents are wholly committed to supporting independent local food businesses.

With an asking price of only £42,50 and a 12-month turnover of £393,347 this territory offers a great opportunity to run an ethical and rewarding franchise, in a sector that is currently growing at 9.1% and worth nearly £2 billion*.
