JJ Foodservice tops £200m turnover for the first time

National wholesaler JJ Foodservice has reported sales of £201m for the year ending March 2018, up from £194m the previous year, with profits of £3.7m.

The increase in turnover for the year reflects the increased activity at the Dagenham, Leicester and Newcastle branches, which were all opened at the end of 2016.

JJ Foodservice group general manager, Terry Larkin, explained: "Moving to the hearts of these cities has brought our business closer to customers, helping them to make great savings when they click and collect."

Profits were £3.7m, down from £6.1m the previous year with the decrease attributed to a combination of food price hikes, staff costs and general consolidation in the market.

"The number of UK restaurants closing increased by a fifth in 2017," added Larkin.

"We are supporting our customers by investing in our people and processes to ensure that caterers receive a first-class service. With so many wholesalers to choose from, it's service that will really differentiate wholesalers in the year ahead."

JJ Foodservice also offers its customers additional services such as the JJ Foodservice Mastercard and its online ordering business, FOODit, which builds restaurant websites.
