Budgens is planning to convert its 172 grocery stores to a franchise ownership structure by 2007, according to an announcement by parent company Musgrave.
Budgens is planning to open about 20 convenience stores a year, as part of a strategy by new parent Musgrave to double the size of the business over the next five years.
Budgens is to relaunch its B2 convenience store in Pimlico, central London, with major changes to the range and an interior refit, and then expects to roll out the new concept to the rest of the chain.
