Charles Saunders Food Service acquires Brakes’ former cold store facility

Charles Saunders, one of the largest independent food service companies in the South West, has acquired the freehold of the Brakes Group’s former cold store premises at Armstrong Way in Yate.  Advised by Alder King, the company purchased the 45,755 sq ft facility from Brakes, which was represented by JLL, for a figure in excess of £3 million. Charles Saunders has been supplying the catering trade with fresh fish and frozen food for over 50 years, operating from custom-built premises in St Philips for the past 20 years. The expansion of its product range and delivery areas, which grew substantially following its acquisition of Good Morning Foods and Disposables in 2012, meant it had outgrown its base and Alder King was appointed to source new premises. The property also includes a large yard area to accommodate Charles Saunders’ 35 strong fleet of modern custom-made vehicles.  The company’s wide delivery area is centred on Bristol and extends into South Wales, the Dorset Coast and North Devon as well as Birmingham and east to Swindon.  The property’s location gives excellent access to the regional road and motorway network.
