We have recently looked at our performance figures and can proudly announce yet another year of solid performance and growth!
Our latest figures report that Hancocks is growing by 5% year on year, with the festive trading period achieving 16% sales growth when compared to Christmas 2012.
6,000 brand new cash and carry customers have registered at our nationwide depots, whilst the Hancocks ecommerce website has contributed fantastically throughout the year, attracting new customers and proving to be a flexible resource for many of our existing customers. With more than 1500 branded and own label confectionery products listed online, the website has certainly appealed to businesses of all kinds, who prefer the convenience of having their supplies delivered. Certainly, all areas of the Hancocks business have played their part in facilitating this growth over the course of 2013.
Commenting on the performance figures, Hancocks’ CEO Mark Watson had this to say: “It has been a great year us; all of our hard work has certainly paid off! We’ve focused on what we do best: working to provide more customers with their confectionery requirements, whether through our cash and carries or through our ecommerce website. As a result, we have had a tremendous 2013, and we aim to carry on in the same vein throughout 2014!”
So what can you expect from Hancocks in 2014?
We have already got plenty of developments ongoing. In particular, our website has just received a thorough overhaul and re-launched earlier this week. The new platform features a brand new design and has additional functionality for the website’s ecommerce operations.
Further news and developments will be announced on this very blog throughout the year, so keep checking back to find out more.
Mark concludes “We are looking forward to a very successful 2014 for both ourselves and all of our customers!”
