Oakhouse Foods Franchise In Kent For Sale

Asking Price: £450,000

Turnover: £1,580,220

Net Profit: up to 8%

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.

This is an area of the country with a high proportion of our target audience (over 65) and is an ever-growing market. Premises and assets would need to be purchased separately, this would be advised by Head Office.
