Manchester-headquartered TD4 Brands is the parent company of Boost Juice Bars and The Shake Lab, a growing chain of retail stores specialising in the sale of freshly made smoothies and juices.
TD4 Brand’s team of nearly 400 is led by founder-owners Richard and Dawn O’Sullivan, who set up the business in 2007 shortly after selling Millie’s Cookies.
Since 2013, BGF has provided with the business with a total of £4.9m to support the roll-out of its sites. During that time, the company has increased the number of Boost Juice Bars from 10 to 32, and has opened up seven new sites in the past year alone, including in Cambridge, Reading, Southampton, Sheffield, Manchester and London.
As part of its expansion, TD4 Brands introduced its bespoke milkshake concept, ‘The Shake Lab’ to Manchester’s Trafford Centre in December 2015, with London’s White City and six other large schemes targeted for this year’s roll-out.
TD4 Brands is on course to achieve sales in excess of £13m this year, up from £5m in 2013 when BGF first invested in the business.
