In the last three years the various outlets have enjoyed a steady annual increase in turnover.
Last year turnover increased by just under 6%, following an increase of over 7% a year earlier. The assessment of the directors is that the business has enjoyed increased footfall and increased basket size per customer.
Sales revenue has also increased in euro sales which were partly encouraged by currency fluctuations between the euro and sterling.
