    The Territory

    Riverford Organic franchise business opportunity resale delivery home based part time mobile lucrative outdoors jobs careersIn 2015 the territory was expanded to include areas in the West, making it geographically one of the largest delivery areas. In addition to this there are still postcode sectors that haven't yet been opened, offering strong potential for future growth.

    The territory incorporates rural countryside, a mix of independent towns such as Blackburn, Preston and Burnley, affluent towns/villages in the Ribble valley such as Clitheroe, Waddington and Bolton by Bowland and East coast towns such as Lancaster, Blackpool and Southport.

    Daily deliveries are collected from the hub in Burnley, which is conveniently located on the M65 corridor providing good access both East and West. 

    There are plenty of opportunities throughout the area to build on the existing customer base utilising shows and events such as The Clitheroe food festival which is now one of the biggest one-day food festivals in the country. Other shows include Lancaster, Preston, Southport and Blackpool.

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

    There is also a strong food culture particularly around the Ribble valley and Preston whose residents are most likely to support independent food businesses and are ideally suited to Riverford marketing.

    With an asking price of only £65,000 and a 12-month turnover of £407,111 this territory offers a great opportunity to run an ethical and rewarding franchise, in a sector that is currently worth over £2.2billion*.
