How does it work?

We think that, whatever you’re looking for, our franchise opportunities tick all the right boxes (vegboxes of course).  You’ll be growing you own business, enjoying fresh challenges and benefiting from all of the support that you’ll need to become the vital link between our farms and your customers.

A Riverford franchise offers an opportunity to become a valued and trusted member of your community, together with excellent earning potential, and joining us could be as good for you as it is for the people you’ll serve.

Most customers order weekly or fortnightly, so there’s repeat business as long as you continue to provide a first class service.  It’s not just fruit and veg that we supply though. Our franchisees now sell an ever-expanding range of organic produce, from meat, milk and eggs to baked goods, juice and wine. It’s great for our customers but just as beneficial for our franchisees too, giving them even more opportunities to spread the word, serve and satisfy (growing their business and profits along the way).

Most of your sales will come from regular satisfied customers who’ll pay weekly or before their delivery, so your business will be ‘cash rich’ from day one. Naturally, like us, you’ll want to build your business too. So we’ll expect you to devote plenty of time to spreading the word about our fruit and vegetables, service and philosophy, securing a steady stream of new customers along the way whilst continuing to provide your regulars with an unbeatable experience. Your daily orders will be processed centrally at your regional farm then picked, packed and dispatched overnight in chilled vehicles to refrigerated collection hubs near you, keeping everything nice and fresh. You’ll manage marketing activities, customers’ accounts and orders through an extranet database, linking our offices to yours at home. It’s an easy system to learn and use and all you’ll need is a broadband connection at home and an up to date computer.
