Clive Davison opened the Lupset in Wakefield, West Yorkshire after a £220,000 investment from Greene King Pub Partners.
The pub was a former Flaming Grill site and has received a full refurbishment as part of the cash injection.
Inside there has been new flooring installed alongside furniture, lighting and a new bar, in a bid to give it a more modern look but still feel the warmth of a local pub.
It has a good value food and drink offer as well as Sky Sports and regular entertainment, alongside a pool table and dartboard.
Davison operates two other sites with Greene King Pub Partners – the Sitwell Arms in Whiston, Merseyside and the Shepley Spitfire in Totley, South Yorkshire.
He said: “I am delighted to have taken on the Lupset – our third pub with Greene King – and expand our multiple operation.
“The pub has been completely transformed with Greene King’s investment and we are really excited for the future of this wet-led, community pub.”
Greene King Pub Partners managing director Wayne Shurvinton outlined how the investment will boost the Yorkshire site.
Lease of life
He added: “With our £220,000 investment, the Lupset has been given a new lease of life as a pub to serve the local community.”
The business recently opened its 25th Hive Pub, its franchise offer, following a £500,000 investment.
In July this year, Shurvinton told The Morning Advertiser the business was planning to reach 30 sites this year with the Hive Pubs branch.
Hive was launched by the pubco in November last year, which at the time it said was “a branded community pub model”.
The franchise concept has a £5,000 ingoing cost where licensees get a weekly paid income, a percentage of food and drink sales, a share in the profits of the pub and the chance to get a bonus.
