Greene King has launched a series of open days for prospective licensees at its headquarters.

The brewer and pub operator will host the events every three months and will offer a tour of their Bury St Edmunds brewery, ale tasting and the chance to talk to Business Development Managers.

Clive Chesser, business unit director for Greene King Pub Partners, said: “For anyone interested in running one of our pubs, we think it is really important to get to know the heart of our business; our brewery and most importantly our people. We have firm family roots in Bury St Edmunds and these informal open days allow us to proudly show off what makes us, in my mind, the best in the business.”

Ed Barker was one of the first visitors to the open days, and now runs the Alexander Arms in Cambridge under a Local Hero agreement. He said: “I thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the brewery tour. It was an ideal way to find out a bit more about how the company works and what being part of the Greene King family means. Meeting the BDM’s was especially helpful, and I found it reassuring to meet the sort of people who day to day would be supporting me to grow my business. “

The next open day will be held on 24 September 2014.

Gaining a 'family' not just a 'partner'

Posted by david,

It seems the term 'partner' is so last year. Being a tied tenant is now like being part of a 'family' apparently. Lovely.

One hopes Uncle and Auntie BDM don't take advantage of any over-enthusiasm in the get-to-know-you beer tasting.

Perhaps the dissenters should attend these open days and set up a stall to advise the new comers of the folly, as it seems over 20 years of media has clearly failed to suppress the desire to take a lease or tenancy.
