Oakhouse Foods Ltd


Who we are

BRIOCHE.jpgOakhouse Foods are one of the leading providers of quality frozen meals and desserts, delivered direct to the customer’s home. We’ve been operating nationwide for 20 years through our network of franchised distributors.

Our product range is unique and with over 300 dishes to choose from, is the largest home delivery selection in the UK. Our meals offer customers a standard of quality that is second to none and because we deliver direct, we are able to provide this choice and quality at very attractive prices too.

As well as our frozen meals and desserts, we also provide our customers with a full grocery service, for which we stock a substantial range of essential lines, all designed for customers who find it hard to get out to the shops.

Our customers

The Oakhouse service particularly suits older people at home and with a rapidly growing elderly population right across the UK, it’s a market that will continue to grow over the years ahead. The vast majority of our many thousands of customers buy regularly each week or fortnight, so as part of the Oakhouse network, you can look forward to building a strong, well-founded business, with customers who love the food and really appreciate the service.

It’s also a very friendly market, with loyal customers who really find our service enjoyable.

What we offer

SWEETSOUR_CHICKEN.jpgAs part of our network of distributors you would have an exclusive area containing a large population, with a 10-year renewable contract. When developed, an area of this size is sufficient to run a business large enough to earn a six-figure income.

Your basic operating setup consists of a local industrial unit, freezers to stock the food, several delivery vans and drivers and a small team of office sales staff.

Marketing your business

We generate interest in the Oakhouse service by advertising regularly on TV and with monthly advertisements in the mainstream magazines that our customers read (such as Saga, Radio Times and Yours).

We also have a fantastic website, with a full online shop, which we promote on a continual basis and which drives thousands of interested enquirers to the business.

To market our meals, we give every enquirer a substantial full-colour catalogue free, which illustrates and describes every meal and dessert. Prices are fixed for 6 months at a time, so customers always know where they stand. And we change the catalogue twice a year, so customers never get bored!


When you join a franchise, you want to benefit from the many years of experience that we and our network can provide. That’s why we are believers in providing extensive, on-going support to our franchisees throughout the country.

ROASTBEEF.jpgThis starts even before you join us. We’ll spend lots of time with talking through the detail of how everything works, so you fully understand what you would be doing. Before you launch your new business, we’ll be working together on detailed planning and business forecasts and we’ll make sure you have an opportunity to talk to other franchisees and even spend time in their businesses, getting to know exactly how it all operates in the field.

You’ll be fully trained, both in the classroom before you start and then ‘hands-on’ once you are up and running. We’ll use our 20 years experience to help you build your business quickly and efficiently and you’ll start making sales and trading profits in your first week.


When you buy a brand new Oakhouse franchise, we help to organise everything you need to get up and running. In our franchise prospectus we provide a detailed breakdown of what’s included in the New-Start package, but we believe it’s one of the most comprehensive packages available.

And once you’ve started, we continue to enhance your investment by providing the majority of your sales and marketing materials free of charge (including our customer catalogues). We provide an extensive range of head office marketing support services free of charge.

Your investment isn’t purely financial. You are also putting a lot back into your local community and, for many customers, the service you and your delivery staff provide will be a real lifeline. It’s a good feeling and a very worthwhile business.

DELIVERY.jpgWhat we need from you

There’s no such thing as a typical franchisee – we have people from all walks of life with us. But there are a number of skills you’ll need to be successful.

  • You will need to be well organised and able to manage your staff (and yourself) effectively.
  • You’ll need to be good with people – not just customers, but also important recommenders such as Social Services management or local community carers.
  • You’ll need to be careful with money, but willing to invest in driving your business forward.
  • You’ll need to be sales-focussed and you will need reasonable IT skills as we provide complete software to run the business.

So, if you’re looking for a serious business in a market that continues to grow year after year, with products you can be proud of and which offers the potential for substantial, long-term rewards, then Oakhouse Foods Limited may be just what you want
