Star Pubs & Bars has been awarded for its lessee support programme.

The pub company won the ASDA Enterprise Growth Award at the Responsible Business Awards, run by Business in the Community.

The company’s Business Start-up Agreement allows licensees to terminate their contract with three months’ notice at any time within the first three years without a penalty. Star also has a first-year support package to improve cashflow and has been making investments in its estate.

Chris Jowsey, trading director of Star Pubs & Bars, said: “We are delighted to have won this award in recognition of our lessee support programme. Our leased pub business model support SMEs, offering industry leading support, helping them to create businesses that are sustainable in the long term.

“We are passionate about ensuring the future of the great British pub which we will do by through investment in the pubs, helping lessees develop alternative income streams wherever possible, through driving quality initiatives and through providing the business building expertise needed to succeed in a competitive market.

“The award is not just for Heineken and Star Pubs & Bars, we see it as an acknowledgement of our partnership with our lessees, of their hard work and of the important role of pubs in local communities.”
