Owned and operated by ‘the organic sisters’ Caroline & Liz since 2006, the East Kent franchise retail sales have been in growth year on year for the past 11 years. This has been driven by an increase in customers, as well as an increase in average order value, which is currently among the highest in the network.
Key conurbations include: Ashford, Canterbury, the Medway towns, Margate, Ramsgate, Folkestone and Dover. The total number of households within the territory is over 463k, offering significant scope for future growth. The current hub location is in Ashford, very close to the M20 and ideally situated for the territory. The road network is efficient, serviced mainly by the M20, M2, A2, A20 and A299.
There are plenty of opportunities throughout the region 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 to their homes. This can be achieved by building a community around the product/business and executing a broad range of marketing activities, including attending local food festivals and events.
There is a growing awareness of organic food and its health benefits; the sector is currently growing at 7.1%*. With significant housing growth in the south east and more to come, this is an expanding market waiting to be tapped.
