WFF (York) Limited, an operator of the UK’s leading frozen meal home delivery business Wiltshire Farm Foods, has been sold to York Group Limited.
The sale of this franchise marks the retirement of the sellers, who set up the business as a Wiltshire Farm Foods franchise over 20 years ago and have successfully grown the business into one of the leading meal delivery providers operating in the York and Hull area. Former co-owner, Barry Bradfield, commented on the business sale:
“Having been a part of Wiltshire Farm Foods continued success over the last few years, it was imperative that we found an investor who shared our vision to invest in WFF (York) Limited and wanted to nurture it further from the strong base which we’ve established”.
York Group Limited, owned by Amarjit Rai and Lacky Sohal, has acquired the entire issued share capital of WFF (York) Limited from the sellers. Amarjit and Lacky have successful backgrounds in Royal Mail, the health service and in franchise brands such as Costa and Pizza Hut Delivery. Their combined plethora of experience will lend well to this latest venture.
Martyn Brierley and William Bowler provided legal advice and Martyn commented on the deal:
“It was a pleasure to work with the Bradfields and Smith Cooper on this transaction. The Bradfields have worked hard to develop a strong business, giving the experienced buyers an excellent platform from which to continue growth”.
