Q Catering Supplies, of Sittingbourne, Kent, which joined Fairway Foodservice four years ago, has doubled its turnover to £8 million in that period. And hopes are high that it will soon pass the £10 million mark.
Since joining the group – now with 20 members – it has increased its workforce from 24 to 46 and expanded its premises from 11,000 sq ft to 18,000 sq ft. More space is in the pipeline.
Founder and managing director Roger Snelling, speaking of the benefits of being part of the group, said: “I found Fairway was the best fit for us after carrying out a lot of research and speaking to other wholesalers.
“It genuinely cares about its members and their objectives, and will provide guidance in any way possible to help you.”
He also alluded to industry intelligence, including trends in the market.
Snelling, a member of the group’s board for three years, added: “A vital part of our membership is access to Fairway’s own-brand range, which is a cut above in quality and has generated a lot of repeat business from our customers.”
