Health food chain doubles its presence in the Midlands

A health food chain is expanding its Midlands presence as the firm acquires an additional 33,755 sq ft of space at the Multipark Pensnett Estate in Kingswinford.

Founded in January 2013 by Nick Shutts and Nigel Morris, Grape Tree currently occupies nearly 34,000 sq ft on the Multipark Pensnett Estate in Kingswinford, meaning the firm will nearly double its space to 68,000 sq ft.

Grape Tree has over 140 stores nationwide, while also offering customers an online delivery service.

Nigel Morris of JG Foods Limited said: “We are thrilled to be expanding our warehouse and manufacturing operations in the Midlands. The business is growing at a pace of two new shops each month and the bigger premises at Multipark Pensnett will allow us greater storage and distribution capacity. Being centrally located allows us to provide the best support to our retail arm and that of our customers.”

David Charlton, director and LCP asset manager at Multipark Pensnett, said: “We’re delighted by Grape Tree’s national success and proud to have played a part in its significant expansion at Multipark Pensnett, where the business first took root. We eagerly anticipate collaborating with the team in the years ahead as the business flourishes even further”.
