If you’ve ever harboured ambitions of running a pub or perhaps going multiple then The Morning Advertiser has put together a 12-page guide of essential information for you – and it’s free!

Just click on this link:​ and then click on the ‘download PDF now’ black box. 

The topics covered in this guide, which is titled Piece Together Your Dream Empire​, include an overview of the sector and how the ‘post-Covid bounce’ is likely to affect the future; the huge number of types of agreement that can be taken on by an incoming or experienced operator; and whether it’s your first or fourth site, there’s advice on how to go about taking your next step into the pub game.

Creative juices

We look at how operators used the time during lockdowns to improve their sites inside and outside meaning if you landed an upgraded site, the rest of the work could be as simple as you using your creative juices to bring people into the great British pub and ensure that timeless buzz of an amazing atmosphere coupled with drinks, food and entertainment is kept alive.

And even if you think the costs of entering the sector are prohibitive, think again, Star Pubs & Bars is one pub company that could have you running a property in its Just Add Talent scheme for an outlay of just £4,000. If you are already a savvy licensee, you may be in a position to put more money into a new business and potentially work out a deal where you have greater authority over what you sell and how you run the pub.

Strong ambitions

The Morning Advertiser​’s Ed Bedington added: “We’ve also seen the emergence of returning players onto the market, with previous big operators coming back to the sector with ambitious plans to build up new operations and estates. Those players have deep pockets and strong ambitions, and that’s certainly bringing a new and competitive flavour to the pub property sector.

“There’s strong demand for growth across the multiple sector as well, so sites are being snapped up on a rapid basis as operators circle, looking for expansion.”
