The operator, which employs more than 800 staff, has moved its 60-strong head office and central reservations team into new premises at Newcastle-upon-Tyne’s Quorum Park.
Upgrading into larger premises will pave the way for the firm’s continued growth as it expands its portfolio of sites across the north of England and Wales.
The Inn Collection Group managing director Sean Donkin said the relocation marked a “whole new chapter” for the pubco’s development, as it comes off the back of the recent opening of the Northallerton Inn, Northallerton, North Yorkshire, four acquisitions – including the first site in Wales – and new ownership structure with the Harris Family Trusts.
Fantastic working environment
“Upgrading into larger, new premises will create a fantastic working environment for our existing central team while futureproofing us for staff growth as we continue to execute expansion plans.”
The Inn Collection Group people director said the pubco was “really excited” to invest in the workspace to help the team “flourish and develop”, adding the space would give flexibility to take on more staff as the company grew.
She continued: “he Park is incredible with outstanding aspects our team can benefit from, including outside sports areas, state-of-the-art gym, social events and eateries.
“For the company there are so many facilities such as large training spaces with the ability to have large groups together and great outdoor spaces for socialising.”
The Inn Collection Group launched its Eat, Drink, Sleep and Explore model in 2006 from its Northumberland headquarters in Cawledge Park, Alnwick, Northumberland.
It currently has 31 freehold sites in prime touristic locations across the north of England and north of Wales including in Northumberland, the Lake District, Yorkshire and Tyne and Wear.
The relocation and office expansion will support and centralise the group’s continued ‘buy and build’ growth strategy as it continues to increase its regional customer base beyond its North East heartland.
Alongside its trading venues, the pubco is carrying out major investment and redevelopment works at several sites ahead of re-openings including the Park in North Tyneside, the Ripon Spa in Ripon, North Yorkshire and the Swan at Grasmere, Cumbria.
