This year will see JJ open not just one new branch, but three!
Here is some information about them all:
Newcastle upon Tyne:
Known for its world famous football team Newcastle United, its city is situated in the North East of England, 277 miles from London and a population of around 280,000.
The local dialect is Geordie, a development of the language spoken by the Anglo-Saxons.
The name Newcastle came from a castle built in the 1080’s by Robert Curthose, William the Conqueror’s son. The Architecture is Jacobean and modern with a display of some dramatically high bridges along its Tyne river.
Our new branch is only 1 mile from the centre. It is a 37,000 sq ft branch with a panoramic showroom. The entire building is being re-cladded with new canopies, the entire yard re-concreted, and new fencing installed to make it stand out as modern.
A large suburb of east London, and about 9 miles from the city centre, the area in which our new branch is situated is by the A13, and not far from the River Thames.
With a population of around 187,000 we are certain that our purpose built branch will cater for many local businesses.
At a size of 26,300 sq ft, and with a 12m eaves height, it will be our tallest branch yet.
The branch also features a double story glazed front and large canopies.
Finding recent fame with its Leicester City Football Club winning their first top level championship, the 2015-2016 Premier League, Leicester is the place to be this year and that’s where JJ Food Service is now.
A city in the East Midlands of England with a population of over 330,000, Leicester is one of the oldest cities in England dating back to the 2nd or 1st centuries BC.
The city, being developed by the Romans, has a lot of ancient treasures to discover.
The new branch is being completely re-developed, from a new roof with skylights, new cladding and concreting of the entire yard, to a brand new office block and showroom.
The branch will certainly stand out as the best looking warehouse in the entire locality.
It is proposed to open all branches Autumn 2016.
