Husband and wife team Harpal, 59, and Swarn Kandhari, 54, have transformed this wholesaler through the acquisition of Rex Brown, a delivery business, and the addition of wholesale services for the ecommerce industry. The company still uses its namesake London cash and carry storefront, which was featured in a challenge on the BBC’s The Apprentice in 2011. Sales have since increased to £26.9m last year, and the company plans to invest in its IT so it can increase the number of product lines and expand further overseas.
