Hunters have 160 branches nationwide including 30 in Greater London with gross turnover in excess of £40m and over 600 people employed throughout the network. The company recently went public in an IPO on July 2nd 2015 and has a market cap of around £25m.

Five years later, in 1992, he and his original founding partner, John Waterhouse, started Hunters in Goodramgate.
