Trading at the Dhamecha Group’s ninth cash and carry has commenced in Birmingham.

The site is the Today’s Group member’s second in the Midlands, following the opening of its Leicester branch in 2015.

Chief executive Pradip Dhamecha said that staff at the new cash and carry were “looking forward to developing close relationships with retailers and caterers in the Birmingham area”.

 “We are delighted to be expanding our Midlands base into Birmingham and to be employing 60 staff in the area,” he said.

“Our team joined us over two months ago and they have spent the last few weeks being trained in the Leicester branch; ready for the opening of Birmingham. 

“As well as the brilliant contribution from our new and existing Dhamecha staff, I would also like to give a big thank you to our hundreds of loyal suppliers for their incredible support in the build-up to the opening,” he added.
