Franchise Opportunities

Our vision is:

“To be the most valued Fruit & Vegetable Supplier in the Hospitality Industry, via our strong relationships with our Owner-operated Franchised partners”

At Yarra Valley Farms we believe that franchising is the most cost effective, customer focused manner to provide fruit & vegetables to our customers and we provide delivery franchises for sale. This is largely because of the benefits our customers can get from having a close relationship with their owner-operated fruit & veg supplier, whilst enjoying the benefits (such as buying power) that come from being backed by a larger company.

We believe that our strategy will revolutionise the way people buy their fruit & veg and so we are always looking for like-minded people who believe that good service and fair pricing can not only help others, but can be financially viable for themselves. Should you share our vision, join us today and buy a distribution franchise from Yarra Valley Farms.

If you buy a delivery franchise from us, the daily functions for you as a franchisee are quite simple. They involve picking up orders from the distribution centre in Yarraville, Melbourne and delivering them to your customers. These orders have been taken directly by Yarra Valley Farms, bought and packed throughout the night, ready for you in the morning.

Because the large majority, if not all, of the deliveries are done in the morning, you have plenty of time to continually grow your business with the support of Yarra Valley Farms and by approaching new prospects. If you want to buy a delivery franchise from a company that truly makes a difference, come to Yarra Valley Farms.

Growth

When people consider growing their business they almost instantly start thinking about more staff, larger warehouse, bigger cool stores, etc.. These considerations are no issue as a Yarra Valley Farms Franchise. You have an infrastructure and support system that helps you grow as much as you like.

What’s more, we and the other Franchises help you grow. Our referral system helps business come to you. Chefs move to different restaurants in different territories and franchises help each other by referring business to you. Furthermore, each and every franchise is advertising for your business as well. The more franchises servicing Victorian restaurants, cafes, care homes, etc., the more advertising there is for your business.

Joining a Market Leader

Yarra Valley Farms was established on September 1, 2001. From the outset, the core focus of the company was to provide quality fresh produce to the hospitality industry with a dynamic combination of great service and fantastic wholesale prices. By franchising it would in effect give owner-operated franchisees a localised run to service, and the personal touch could be kept with each and every customer within this growing organisation.

The Franchise

How Does It Work

The daily functions for you as a franchisee are quite simple. They involve picking up orders from the distribution centre and delivering them to your customers.

 

These orders have being taken directly from your customers by Yarra Valley Farms, bought and packed throughout the night, ready for you in the morning.

 

Because the large majority if not all the deliveries are done in the morning, you have plenty of time to continually grow your business with the support of Yarra Valley Farms and by approaching new prospects.

Ever Consider Working For Yourself?

Remember the time when it was a swear word to say “I want some quality of life?” The time when a good work ethic meant doing a twelve hour shift and having your boss say “well done, you’re a real asset!” The time when you were proud of being an important part of your company but quietly feeling that you deserved more, or could do better for your family in the time spent with them and the money you made to help secure yours and their future?

 

Well I have to tell you, times have changed! These days it’s ok to say “I am capable and hardworking and now I want to use my skills to secure my future as well as spend more time doing the things that I want to do!” These days it’s ok to say “I want to control my work rather than my work control me!”

 

These are good reasons why we see an ever increasing amount of people choosing to be their own boss. To feel the satisfaction of being in control of their lives and to have every penny earned by them to be in their pocket.

Lina Maggiore | January 2011

Becoming a Yarra Valley Farms Franchisee is one of the best moves we have made. You get to run your own business with the support & guidance of a team of people who all want you to succeed.

With the help of training in sales techniques & specialised sales staff I have grown my business by 40% in less than 12 months.

I have found success through good customer service & by making my customers feel that I am an extension of their business.

Bill & Pam Clendenning | February 2014

We wish we had found this business opportunity earlier.
Yarra Valley Farms has changed our lifestyles & it’s a satisfying feeling to be given the chance to be our own boss.

As a Franchise owner we continually get strong support from everyone from the Directors right through to the packing & warehouse team at Yarra Valley Farms.

Having worked in a totally different field previously with no experience in the fruit & vegetable industry, running a business, Yarra Valley Farms have made the whole experience very easy & most of all very enjoyable.
We started in an area with a small amount of business after 3 and a half years we are operating two trucks, this growth would not have happened without Yarra Valley Farms help & support.

Daniel Burgoyne | January 2011

Choosing to join Yarra Valley Farms was a great move for me. It has given me the opportunity to get out from behind a desk and work for my self doing something I enjoy.

The franchise system gives you support and an environment where everyone is working towards the same goal – growing the business.

With good relationships with many of my customers, work feels like a long drive home visiting friends. And best of all is the lifestyle. You get up very early, but often have the afternoon free do as you wish.

Roger Beamish | January 2011

At the age of 44, my goal was to achieve something for myself and my family, now at 51 years and another daughter I am in a great place.
Myself and Yarra Valley Farms have worked together to build up my area to a level which is comfortable for me to maintain and still achieve customer satisfaction.

I have also employed my wife to take care of accounts receivable and this frees my time up to take better care of my customers and also to enlist new customers. In doing this she now has more understanding of the industry and can do this from home while also attending to home duties. This I find a great help.

I have no hesitation in recommending a Yarra Valley Farms franchise to anyone but particularly a husband and wife team.

Our Environment - Introducing enrich360

enrich360

At Yarra Valley Farms we know that the future of everything we do is determined by the health of the planet and the farms that we source our fruit and vegetables from. To look after our future we have launched a project under the label of enrich360. enrich360 describes the process of returning the food waste created in our client’s kitchens to the soil at the farms where it came from. That way we can reduce landfill and reduce soil degradation whilst creating tastier and more nutritious food. Click on the enrich360 logo to find out more.
