Is it right for me?
Taking on a pub is a big decision, and you need to make sure it’s right for you.
Regardless of whether you’re planning to be hands-on in running your pub business, or if you’re thinking of employing a team to do that for you, it’s hard work! Building a successful business takes commitment and determination.
If you are considering taking on a pub you need to fully understand the implications, both financial and personal. A detailed business plan is essential and you need to do as much research as possible into the pub and the agreement you’re looking at so you can be sure it suits your aspirations.
Some of our pub businesses are complex and would not be suitable for someone with little or no industry experience, but a number of our sites are. What’s most important is having strong business acumen, a focus on the customer experience and a can-do attitude.
