The Barnack Group – Bondholder Dinner Profile

The Barnack Group is 27 years old and made up of three companies; the sales and marketing of Confectionery which includes a charity franchise network, Storage and Logistics, and finally Property development and construction. We operate nationally with a focus on customer service and providing value for money. Our company prides itself on getting things done and having an excellent team of staff with a ‘can do, make it happen’ culture.

Our biggest achievement remains the move to our 9 acre facility at Orton Southgate, which has allowed our Storage and Confectionery businesses to grow.  This has allowed our Storage business to expand from 5000 to 15000 pallet spaces, and for the Confectionery franchise network to expand to 25 franchisees; at the same time providing an improved working environment for all teams.

Our goal for the next 12 months continues to be the growth of the Group in terms of turnover, staff employment and increased net profit.

  • To continue to grow our charity box ‘With Thanks’ franchise to beyond 45 franchisees
  • To continue to expand our Storage and Logistics business in line with its business plan, seeing turnover increase by 25% in the next 24 months.

We have been based in Peterborough for 27 years and during this time our business continues to grow with the city.  Peterborough has excellent road and rail connections with a good pool of flexible labour. The city is developing a sense of direction and a ‘will do, can do’ attitude, assisting growth. The City Council and its departments are coordinating the services and infrastructure in the city, and leisure amenities are constantly improving.  All of this is attracting businesses and families to Peterborough which in turn helps business.
