Meet our Makers! Join us as we shed some light on the two man team behind and examine their visions for our company's future.

James Johns

James is a natural innovator and creative thinker who is able to spot an opportunity and adventure. James constantly seeks to find new solutions to existing problems. He has learnt, through years of experience, the value of consumer satisfaction and this fuels his desire to make Bulk Buy Direct a leader in quality customer service. 

Anthony Dane-Josiah

Anthony has spent his working life employed by and learning from world leading companies from across the service industry, holding management and even senior management positions at McDonalds, JD Wetherspoons, Mitchells & Butlers Plc and Costco Wholesale to name but a few. Anthony's pragmatic approach to business perfectly compliments James' creativity. His knowledge, particularly of business practices and licensed retail, underpins much of the structure of Bulk Buy Direct. 


Where are they taking us?

James and Anthony have exciting plans for BulkBuyDirect and we can't wait for you to be a part of it! Both agree that all modern businesses have a responsibility not just to their customers but also to their environment as a whole. Wise words, but what does this mean? Well, they have set themselves goals to allow BulkBuyDirect to grow into the kind of company we can be proud of, (And profits didn't even crack the top 5!).

  1. All Electric Delivery Vehicles. We all know that fossil fuels are a problem and if we don't all minimise our carbon footprints the effects on the environment will be catastrophic! This one is a no brainer for any responsible business.
  2. Recycle Responsibly. Just because we've delivered your goods doesn't mean we can't still do more! We know that products come with packaging, and bulk products come with bulk packaging which needs to be disposed of. BulkBuyDirect aims to provide a collection service to safely and responsibly recycle the packaging our products create. We working on this now and as soon as this service goes live, you'll be the first to know!
  3. The time to give back, is now. Just like James & Anthony, our customers have causes close to their hearts and we'd like to help! We know that we're nothing without our customers and we don't want to put off supporting you guys like you support us. We're actively looking for community projects large and small to support. Perhaps your child's school is hosting a fundraiser for more equipment, perhaps your library is short of hand sanitizer and supplies to stay Covid safe. Let us know and we'll provide help in any way we can, just ask!
  4. Let's provide our service to more people! At the moment we can only provide our service in Kingston and the surrounding areas but we want to do so much more. We believe that there are people who would benefit from our offer right across London and beyond. We hope to expand our delivery area rapidly so if we haven't quite got to you yet, bear with us we'll let you know when you can order!
  5. The Bottle Shop Cometh. Providing an online service is fun and all but we'd really love to meet you face to face! We have exciting plans to launch a modern 'taproom' style venue which will not only increase your access to our products and services but also provide a comfortable, social environment for our customers to enjoy.

*We don't sell Spam, and we won't send you any either! You'll never receive more than one email a week from us, (Unless there's a query with your order, and even then we'd rather phone you!), and BulkBuyDirect will never share your details with any other companies or third parties. It's just good manners!
