High Performing Pet Food Delivery Franchise In Wiltshire For Sale

Calne, Wiltshire
Asking Price:
£29,900 Inventory / Stock included
Turnover:
£62,000
Net Profit:
Available on request

A unique opportunity has become available within the Trophy Pet Foods network of franchisees, to purchase an existing franchise covering the Swindon and North Wiltshire area.

The present owners, a husband and wife team, have successfully operated this Trophy franchise since 2013. In 2016 the business was runner up in the BFA’s and HSBC’s Microbusiness of the year awards.

Since January 2018 one of the owners has been contracted by Trophy Pet Foods Ltd as the Franchisee Support Manager for the national network. In December of 2018 the owner was appointed the Managing Director of the Trophy national brand; forcing a very reluctant sale of their local Calne based business.

Managing the Swindon and North Wiltshire area takes approximately 3 days per week and includes some evening deliveries. This means that there is still a good amount of potential to build this business up to an even more profitable level on a 4 or 5 day week basis.

A long-term and very loyal customer base of over 300 active customers has already been established in and around the Calne area. Leaving the very significant scope for expansion in Swindon and Chippenham areas. Full support is provided by the franchisor and the brand has been established for nearly 30 years. The current and highly experienced owner of the area, (who is remaining with the brand), will also provide an extended handover/support period if required.

The re-sale includes the following:

- All legal rights to the area
- Email address and phone number transfers
- Full records for existing live, potential and lapsed customers
- Starting stock tailored to the existing customer base
- Professional handover from one of the top performing franchise members
- Product knowledge
- Ongoing mentoring from the previous owners for up to 3 months after sale
- Lifelong support from Trophy HQ
- In-House and In-Field Training
- Independent Nutritional Qualification
- PR launch via local magazine, newspaper or social media
- Equipment package including corporate clothing, promotional and marketing materials
- Updated and personalised Vehicle Livery
- Records and personal introductions to established networking contacts and influencers

Please note that no van is included in the sale, however, the rental agreement of the current van can be transferred if required. An exploratory meeting with the present owners is very highly advised.

If interested please contact the seller through the form on this page.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

Significant expansion is possible beyond the 2.5 delivery days a week currently utilised. Proven customer acquisition techniques can be leveraged to build the client base from 300 to over 500. The current core customer base is in Calne leaving larger urban areas such as Swindon and Chippenham almost unexplored.

Competition / Market:

Competition from online discounters is a consideration but highly effective personal service based strategies to counter this are available. More detail available upon request.

Reasons for selling:

One of the current owners has been appointed as the Managing Director of the Trophy Pet Foods Ltd franchising business. Due to the potential conflict of interest this creates a very reluctant and highly supported sale of a much loved business.
