Oakhouse Foods - Frozen Food Delivery Franchise
‘Dedicated to delicious meals and quality service’
Join Oakhouse Foods, one of the leading providers of quality frozen meals delivered direct to the customers’ home; primarily serving the elderly. Over 65s account for nearly a fifth of the UK population and are the fastest growing consumer group.
Who Are We?
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 global Kerry Group, a leader in the global food industry with a turnover in excess of €6bn, Oakhouse Foods is benefitting from an increase in investment, expertise and support from a global taste & nutrition expert.
Why choose Oakhouse Foods?
The home delivery meals market sector is expanding; more and more people are ordering their food direct to home and Oakhouse Foods is now well placed to embark on its next phase of expansion, so we are looking for ambitious, like-minded partners to join us on this journey.
You will be part of a network of local teams dedicated to providing a friendly and personal service from order right through to delivery.
Your customers can order over the phone or online and our friendly, police-checked drivers bring the order, usually on the same day each week, and even put it away in the customer’s freezer if they like.
The broad range of meals you will be able to offer have been developed to meet the varied needs of our customers: gluten-free, low sugar, low fat and a wide range of ‘Made Without’ dishes; a great choice of standard meals, mini meals, fork mash-able and pureed formats; we even offer a range of essential grocery items.
What is the investment?
You will be putting a lot back into your local community and, for many customers, the service you and your delivery staff provide will be a real lifeline; your investment isn’t purely financial.
