Admiral Taverns, the UK’s leading community pub group with over 800 pubs across the country is holding a ‘Community Pub Open Day’ in Merseyside this week in a bid to encourage locals, who aspire to running their own business, to consider a career in the pub industry.
In recent years Admiral has made great efforts to champion the possibilities of the traditional tenanted pub model to entrepreneurial individuals who are keen to start their own business. Through its unique and award-winning approach, Admiral has built a strong track record of working closely with entrepreneurs who are completely new to the pub industry, helping them to develop the skills they need to run their own, sustainable pub businesses.
The Group has developed a bespoke ‘Business Support Agreement’ which provides first-time pub licensees with tailored training, support and a portfolio of products over the crucial start-up period, setting them on the right path to grow and develop their pub business.
At the open day, which is being held on Wednesday 31st January 2018 at the Stork Hotel, 41 Prince Street, Birkenhead, Merseyside, CH41 6JN from 11am to 6pm, the Group’s local Business Development Manager, Sallyanne Sheil will be on hand to talk to both first time and experienced licensees about a career in the pub industry. Sallyanne will also be showcasing the pub business opportunity at the Stork Hotel, centrally located with a large pub garden and the potential to develop an exciting food offer for the local community.
Commenting on the event, Sallyanne Sheil, Admiral Taverns’ Business Development Manager for the West Midlands said:
“Behind every great, authentic community pub is a hardworking and dedicated licensee. Across our estate we see countless examples of ambitious and self-motivated landlords whose personality and character has shaped their pub, curating it into a great social hub for local community.
“Many people aspire to running their own business but will frequently overlook the low-risk opportunities the UK tenanted pub model can afford. There is a common misconception that industry experience is essential when taking on a pub, but our view is that if a potential licensee has the right attributes and can demonstrate that they are ambitious, dedicated and hardworking, we can support you to make your business a success.
“At Admiral we have a proven track record of working closely with countless licensees up and down the country, empowering them to run their own business, in their own way. We believe that increasingly UK consumers are looking for individual and authentic experiences on their doorstep and a well-run local pub can provide just that.”
