Overview

Are you are interested in running your own pub business? The Five Bridges in Queensborough on the Isle of Sheppey is now available on Marston’s Community Food Partnership agreement.

The Five Bridges is a modern built community pub based on a busy retail park, attracting shoppers and workers from local businesses. Known for food and its poplar Sunday carvery, the pub is zoned into two, with a bar area for drinkers and separate dining space. Outside there is a large beer garden to be enjoyed by guests in the summer months. 
 
The pub is currently trading an average of £15,000 in weekly sales, with a 70/30 food to wet sales mix.
With new housing currently being built nearby there is opportunity to grow
sales by hosting regular events quizzes, entertainment evenings to capture new residents attention. We are looking for a strong marketeer, passionate about running a pub at the heart of their community, and will continue to engage and build on relationships made with locals and businesses in the area. 
 
Live- In accommodation is available in the form of two self contained double studio apartments. 

Our Community Food Partnership is perfect for people with pub or restaurant experience, passionate about pubs and obsessed with serving great food and an unforgettable experience every time!  With low ingoing costs, and all the training and support you need to set you up for success, this is a great way of running your own business. This is an opportunity to earn an unlimited potential of sales backed up with a guaranteed annual retained sum to provide you with some peace of mind.

The Opportunity

What’s in it for you?

  • A guaranteed annual retained sum of £35k, released weekly,
  • Plus 26% share of weekly sales, excluding VAT.
  • Incentive bonuses based on business performance and standard audits.
  • Low ingoing costs, starting with just a £5,000 deposit and £360 legal cost. See ‘Things to consider’ for more information.
  • Accommodation included with most bills covered, except the council tax & TV License.
  • All of your stock, including food, and all associated consumables are supplied by Marston’s, although you will be responsible for managing it once it has been delivered.
  • Comprehensive induction training and ongoing support and training.
  • A dedicated area manager working with you to help you grow the business.
  • Access to our 450 strong-support teams whenever you need them – including Marketing, Recruitment and Food and Drink specialists.
  • All our Pub Partners get access to our FREE Learning, Development and Training platform Campus (a package worth over £300!).

What’s expected from you:

Our Community Food Partnership pubs are food-led businesses, operating our Marston’s corporate menu. It’s a proven business-model, perfect for self-sufficient hospitality managers with a creative flair, who can drive sales, standards and guest experience.

In addition to the £5k security deposit required for this agreement, you will need to cover legal costs (£360), and your own insurance (except building insurance, which we’ll cover). Also, you’ll want to start thinking about your team; taking care of paying them and all other employment matters.

Before we all sign the agreement and see you heading into a whole new life, you’ll just need to show us proof that you’ve had independent financial advice from an accountant and solicitor and have completed a sustainable business plan, in accordance with the Pubs Code. And, of course, obtain your personal licence (which we can help with) and complete your induction training.

It’s a five-year commitment, so you have loads of time to build the business and get it performing brilliantly but, if you do want to leave early, there’s always the option of six months’ notice with a ‘break’ clause in the contract.
