Greene King Pub Partners has been named as the best tenanted and leased pub company (201+ sites) at the Publican Awards 2017.

The prestigious industry accolade was awarded to Greene King Pub Partners at a London ceremony hosted by Jonathan Ross.

Greene King Pub Partners impressed judges of the category across a range of areas including the reporting of record results in the past financial year as well as the introduction of a new food supply service among other innovations.

The award is recognition for Greene King establishing itself as the preferred partner for the best operators with its recruitment and retention of exceptional partners.

In a year of change across the sector, Greene King has placed licensees at the heart of its business by being transparent about its strategy and vision for the future.

This latest honour follows previous success at the recent NITA awards which highlighted Greene King’s industry-leading training and support that makes a difference to licensees.

Landmark achievements for Greene King Pub Partners in the past year include:

  • A new food supply service now offering full support to more than 140 sites
  • New retail partnerships with suppliers for key products and services
  • Industry-leading training including the Licensee Development programme, a multi-site operator course and our ‘first 100 days’ support for new tenants
  • Unrivalled business support and advice from the best BDMs in the business, including ALMR award winner Paul Wishart in Scotland

Rooney Anand, Greene King chief executive, said: “This award is a hugely significant achievement for everyone involved with Greene King Pub Partners and one we are proud to receive.

“It demonstrates that we are industry-leading across a number of areas in the business support we offer in partnership with our licensees.

“We are being proactive in our planning and vision for Greene King Pub Partners, but we are always reactive, too, listening to those we are in partnership with.

“We know and respect the fact our licensees are talented people who want to run successful business in their own way and we do everything possible to support them with this.

“We believe our estate is the best in the industry, a truly diverse portfolio of successful well-run pubs and it is our people, both our team and our licensees, who set us apart.”
