Mobile tea and coffee business Ringtons pride themselves on delivering top quality products to their customers. As a testament to this, their highly popular Scottish Strawberry Preserve was awarded an outstanding two star rating in the prestigious Great Taste 2013 awards.

The Great Taste awards is widely regarded as the world’s largest and most rigorous food awards. Great Taste judges blind taste over 9,700 entrants to find the very best food and drink, so it is a huge honour for businesses to be recognised by the awards.

“We’re absolutely thrilled that our constant strive to produce the best quality products has been recognised in this way. Our delicious Scottish Strawberry Preserve wowed the judges in the scheme! We sell over 80,000 jars every year so we know our customers love it and Great Taste clearly agree,” says Jon Malton, Brand Director of Ringtons.

Ringtons franchisees deliver first-class products with exceptional service and a personal and friendly touch to over 260,000 UK households. Founded in 1907, the business has a rich heritage of which it is immensely proud and the core business is still family owned to this day.

Joining Ringtons as a franchisee has never been easier or more attractive. Ringtons are so confident in their franchise model that they are now offering an unprecedented level of financial support for new franchisees. The new fee structure opens the franchise opportunity up to a significantly wider audience with the initial franchise cost being just £5,000. Ringtons will then fund the remaining £10,000 which franchisees can repay through an increased monthly Management Service Fee (MSF) over four years.

From award-winning food and drink to unique heritage collectables, the team at Ringtons head office continues to increase product range and quality to ensure their franchisees are able to offer the very latest and finest items to their ever expanding base of loyal customers.

“What we offer new franchisees is totally unique. We provide financial assistance for them to own a business which guarantees income from day one. We want our franchisees to hit the ground running with everything they need not only to operate their business successfully but with the skills and confidence to deliver exceptional customer service. We’re looking to partner with people who are passionate about starting and growing their business and being part of, and continuing, the proud Ringtons tradition,” explains Chris Clarke, Franchise Manager at Ringtons.

As part of the fully comprehensive training and launch package, new franchisees are guaranteed a minimum of 1,800 new customer orders from day one. The package also includes an exclusive territory, in-depth training programme, £3k of stock, a 3-month deposit on a VW caddie van plus all the equipment needed to successfully launch and run the business.
