Self-Employed Pub Business Partner
- Run A Pub
- Full Time
The Cheshire Line Tavern is a former Victorian train station which has been converted into a large, comfortable pub and restaurant serving traditional food, fine wines and a large selection of cask ales, it is well known locally due to its unusual history and for its reputable food offer. Situated in the popular location of Cheadle next to a busy garden centre just off the Manchester road between Cheadle Village and Parrs Wood , it is the perfect location for all occasions. Inside is traditional decor with a large central bar and extensive dining areas. The successful applicant/s will need to display a strong background in food with experience of high turnover food sites, ideally as chef/s as well as being commercially aware, able to drive sales profitably and open to being in a partnership style agreement of mutual benefit to both parties. This is an attractive opportunity for a food led operator as this is a well established and successful business with an excellent reputation.
You can have the best of both worlds with our new and exciting Pillar Agreement. Support is key for this turnover-share agreement which shares the risk and the opportunities between both parties, creating a partnership and focus to give your guests a first-class experience. We share the net sales and some of the cost base building a deal that gives both parties a solid base to build and grow a profitable business. • The option to leave your old life behind and be your own boss • Live rent-free in the pub • Marston’s will pay your utilities for you lighting, heating and water • Between us we will agree the wet product range to support your food offer. • You retain an agreed percentage of all income streams (net of VAT) and have full control over your food offer and accommodation (where applicable) • Low ingoing costs • Marston’s will take responsibility for all repairs and decoration both internal and external, (except the private residential accommodation). • No service charge applies to this agreement • Have your Broadband, cutting-edge EPOS system and online booking tools (where appropriate) supplied by Marston’s • Fixtures and fittings would be owned by Marston’s • Keep 50% of the profits from any gaming machines • Offer the award-winning range of fantastic Marston’s beers, wines, spirits and minerals • Have your drinks stock supplied and paid for by Marston’s • Expert induction training plus on-going training and support from your dedicated Business Development Manager and support teams Things to consider You’ll need to put in a £5k deposit, plus legal fees and monies to cover your insuring obligations under the agreement (except building insurance, which we’ll pay for and recharge to you). Also, you’ll want to start thinking about your team; taking care of paying them and all other employment matters. We’re on-hand to offer guidance as you plan your business overheads, like business rates (and your own residential Council Tax). Before we all sign the agreement and see you heading into a whole new life, you will need to show us proof that you have taken independent financial advice from a suitably qualified accountant on your business plan and professional advice from a solicitor, in accordance with the requirements of the Pubs Code Regulations. And, of course, obtain your personal licence (which we’ll help with) and complete your induction training. This is a five-year commitment, so you have plenty of time to build a successful business but, if you do want to leave early, there’s always the option of six months’ notice with a ‘break’ clause in the contract.
