Oakhouse Foods Franchise In Dorset For Sale

Asking Price: £485,000

Turnover: £1,131,607

Net Profit: Circa £90,000 pa.

Oakhouse Foods is one of the leading providers of quality frozen meals and desserts, delivered direct to the customers’ homes. Over 65s account for nearly a fifth of the UK population and are the fastest-growing consumer group. An ageing population equals an increase in age-related conditions requiring help on a daily basis and an increase in the demand for services to help the ageing population which, in turn, increases the demand for private provisions.

To facilitate the explosive growth, the home care and related services markets are currently estimated at £5.2bn and are only going to grow to keep up with the unprecedented demand.

Oakhouse Foods has been established for over 25 years and operates a proven franchise business model which is loved by customers for its extensive range of quality food and friendly, personal service.

Now owned by the Pilgrim’s Pride, a leader in the global food industry with a turnover in excess of $12bn, Oakhouse Foods is benefitting from an increase in expertise and support from them.
