Leaving the Armed Forces?

Running a community pub is the perfect business venture for ex-military personnel. It gives you the opportunity to use your existing skills to run a successful, profitable business – you’ve got the commitment, organisation and discipline which is so important for a franchisee.

A pub is not only an excellent business opportunity, but it also provides a fun and vibrant environment which is the ideal place to start building your new life outside of the Armed Forces. It’s more than just having a roof over your head – it’s an opportunity to meet new people and become a central part of a community.

Our franchisees who've come from a military background have found that our Pub Franchise suited them perfectly. Find out from Andrew and Lorraine why the Marston's Pub Franchise ticked all the boxes!

“Franchising was the best option for us in many ways and so much better than trying to do it all alone. The investment, training and support we have had from Marston’s have been fantastic. Marston’s has given us every encouragement possible and yet we still have plenty of autonomy. I don’t think you could beat the package we have, particularly on the financial side. Marston’s made a heavy investment in refurbishing the pub to a very high standard yet involved us every step of the way.”
