The concept of people getting together to buy their wood fuel at the best possible prices has caught on very quickly and membership is climbing steadily. This is likely to be a strong continuing trend for the foreseeable future because of the number of wood and multifuel stoves and boilers being sold as fossil fuel prices soar and global warming accelerates.
The Wood Fuel Co-op's success is built around providing sound solutions to the problems many stove owners have when trying to source dry fuel. To date, the focus has been on sourcing high quality wood pellets, wood briquettes and horse bedding at the kind of prices only bulk buying can achieve. We constantly hear about the problems caused by damp logs and the difficulty of ensuring a long term fuel supply without having to give up a large amount of space to storage and we believe we are able to provide excellent solutions for our customers.
Each new Wood Fuel Co-operative depot will be owned, financed and managed by an individual entrepreneur and will sell only Wood Fuel Co-operative products at agreed prices to Wood Fuel Co-operative members and non-members. We have published an Outline Franchisee Proposition on our 'Franchisees Wanted' page which goes into the background and specifics of the business model and is intended to open up a dialogue with anyone who would like to look into this opportunity in more detail.
