Major UK cash & carry wholesaler, Bestway has expanded its dedicated foodservice delivery operation, re-launching it under a new name: BB Foodservice (previously Bestway Batley Foodservice). With its foodservice sales currently accounting for only 7% of Bestway's total turnover, the business has set out the goal of building this to 20% in the medium term future.
Operating through 15 hub depots
As part of the re-launch, Bestway has selected its 15 best performing foodservice depots to operate as the bases for a dedicated fleet of BB Foodservice delivery vehicles, servicing customers with a full range of multi-temperature product categories; effectively offering a 'one-stop-shop' for catering businesses.
Providing national coverage
The 15 depots are located across the UK in: Aberdeen, Perth, Glasgow, Edinburgh (x2), Newcastle, Cleveland, Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Cardiff, Gillingham, Southampton and Plymouth.
Martin Race, Managing Director, Bestway Wholesale commented:
'For years wholesalers have been too preoccupied with what their competitors are doing to stop and ask their customers what they want. So we listened, and we put what we learned to good use. GG Foodservice is here to deliver a local, more personal service. Our support doesn't end at the door. Whatever our customers need, our local territory sales managers are just a phone call away.'
