Greenhalgh’s revamps and expands

first_imgCraft baker Greenhalgh’s is to start rolling out “fantastic new branding” to give its 42 outlets a “fresher look” from next month. Bakery production manager David Smart said the new fascia is designed to give the stores a more modern feel. The “G” of Greenhalgh’s has been blown up to four times the size of standard text, to give the company a clear identifying logo. The new look will take 18 months to roll out across the company’s estate in north-west England, Mr Smart told British Baker.Greenhalgh’s is also planning to open two or more new outlets in the next year, boos-ting store numbers from the current 42. And the company is expanding the wholesale side of its business, which is now 50% wholesale and 50% retail. It supplies supermarkets Asda, Tesco, Morrisons and Booths, convenience chain Spar and companies inclu-ding BHS, House of Fraser and Roadchef.Wholesale sales manager Garry Thew told British Baker the company also has a growing export market, selling to expatriates in countries such as Spain, the Balearics and Tenerife. The majority of this business is meat-based.He noted that, following the recent lifting of the export ban on British beef, the company expects competition to escalate in overseas markets over the next six to eight weeks.With the lifting of the ban, Greenhalgh’s is to start selling products made with British beef in its overseas markets; before, it sourced beef from countries such as the Republic of Ireland, Argentina and Brazil. “Things will change now that we will be using British beef across the range,” said Mr Thew.last_img read more

This means that our buyers benefit from our long term value and investment as the developer into their property and lifestyle,” he said.

Velocity Property Group managing director Brendon Ansell said his latest development The Hathaway, in Auchenflower, was designed to give empty nesters back their free time and provide them with a luxurious place to unwind.Located on the hilltop just behind The Wesley Hospital and close to transport, Mr Ansell said his company made a conscious decision that Brisbane didn’t need more skyrises but needed more for the growing wealthy empty nester community.center_img The Hathaway in Auchenflower by Velocity Property Group delivering luxe apartments, penthouses and town homes across 14 residences.He said based on their lifestyle, frequent travel and desire for high quality living spaces that are close to amenities such as restaurants and cafes, empty nesters wanted to downsize into properties that met strict criteria.“These properties need to be architecturally designed, well located, feature luxe finishes and be a solid financial investment with strong, long-term growth and The Hathaway delivers all of this across the three penthouses, eight apartments and the three town homes,” Mr Ansell said. He said with many empty nesters and busy professionals wanting to travel regularly, the design of properties such as The Hathaway needed to include full ‘lock and leave’ security, balanced with minimal common areas and no expensive gyms or pools to keep body corporate fees low. “In essence we give back time to our empty nester buyers who have worked hard their whole life and are now taking time out to enjoy their life and not spend it maintaining a large expensive home and to our busy professional buyers who want to relax when they are home, not maintain large properties,” he said. last_img read more
