Ban­ner Dell is a suc­cess­ful fam­ily busi­ness, owned by North­ern Ire­land in­ter­ests but reg­is­tered sep­a­rately in Eng­land in mid-fe­bru­ary 2015. The group op­er­ates across North­ern Ire­land, Scotland, Eng­land and the Repub­lic of Ire­land. It op­er­ates a large num­ber of re­tail fast food op­er­a­tions, through the KFC fran­chise, as well as fo­cus­ing on prop­erty in­vest­ment and de­vel­op­ment. The fast food op­er­a­tions are mon­i­tored on a month by month ba­sis to as­sess the growth of busi­ness, food costs and labour costs as a percentage of sales and labour hours com­pared from one store to an­other.

The prop­erty port­fo­lio in­cludes shop­ping cen­tres, in­dus­trial es­tate, and of­fice ac­com­mo­da­tion. The prop­erty is re­ported to achieve good rental yields. The trad­ing re­sults have been in­flu­enced ini­tially in 2015 by the costs of es­tab­lish­ing the busi­ness. In 2016 and 2017 a pos­i­tive op­er­at­ing profit was recorded. In 2017, pre-tax prof­its were in­creased be­cause of a trans­fer of income of £30.9m from shares in other com­pa­nies in the group.
