Foo go, the high street sandwich supplier, has announced that it is expanding into the retail sector with the rollout of a chain of shops across the UK. The company, which supplies to retailers including WH Smith and Superdrug, is looking to open sites in around 40 towns in the country, starting this year. The group, founded by George Robinson who also set up the PJ Smoothies drinks firm, currently has one outlet in Lincoln and is planning to open the next three shops in cathedral cities. Foo go is currently backed solely by Robinson, although he told The Telegraph that he would look for other financial investors in the future. The venture, which has sales of £18m, uses biodegradable packaging and Robinson said that the shops will continue to use locally produced ingredients, making the concept more suitable to smaller locations rather than London.
