This is a unique opportunity to acquire a farm shop in Portadown, which also has an online shopping and delivery service for locals in the area. The business delivers food door-to-door, currently covering the Belfast, Bangor, Lisburn, Newry, Armagh, and Portadown area. Established in 2017, this long-running business has grown significantly since its creation and has now gained an excellent reputation and a loyal customer base in the local community.
The company stocks a wide variety of locally sourced produce, including potatoes, root veg, salads and herbs, fruits and nuts, eggs and dairy, bakery goods, coffee beans, and much more. Currently, customers use the website to place their orders, choosing the best, raw produce from the company’s partner farms. Customers then pick a delivery day, with the online farm bringing produce to the door. Alternatively, customers can visit the on-site shop to pick from their range of fresh produce.
The company’s mission is to deliver the highest quality locally sourced produce directly from the farms right to customers’ doors at the best possible prices. They prioritise taking an environmentally friendly approach to business, by foregoing all plastic, using recycled paper bags instead, and producing only the minimum organic wastage.
The business already has a brilliant, easy-to-use website, with Google Analytics set up and ready to use. All the maintenance and coding updates are completed by the company, which runs the e-commerce platform. The new owner will be able to begin using the website immediately, following the acquisition.
The business operates from a brand new shop, which has an ideal location in Portadown, with one full-time member of staff operating the premises. The property consists of a shop area of 40m² and a large parking yard, as well as extra storage space in a shed nearby. Additionally, there is an insulated room, where stock is stored. There is the option for this space to be converted into a cold room.
All equipment will be included.
This would be the ideal opportunity for someone environmentally focused, with a background in horticulture or food production.
There is huge potential for growth with this business, as there is a massive opportunity to expand the delivery area and launch marketing campaigns that focus on how environmentally responsible the business is. Currently, the business is moving in the direction of agro-tourism. There is massive scope to organise seasonal events (such as Santa's grotto), which have proved highly popular and profitable in the past. On Saturdays, the company has started to invite other local traders, so the new owner could continue to develop this. Finally, there is potential to grow the shop's services, by offering coffee, installing a gas & electric top-up terminal, and a parcel drop-off zone.
Currently, the business has a Facebook page with over 7,500 followers and an Instagram account with almost 2,000 followers. They also operate a Google Business account.
