Self-Employed Pub Business Partner

Run A Pub

Job Description

Goldies is a picturesque historic pub that is situated on the popular high street in Dorchester. This wet only site has 2 small rooms and skittle alley and specialises in cask ales and sky sports. It caters for locals and tourists and is a popular sports pub. This is a great opportunity to take on a well-established pub with regular trade, the current Retailer has been there over 10 years and has maintained a consistent busy customer base during this time.

Goldies would suit an experienced pub operator with a passion for sports and cask ale however it would also be a good opportunity for someone looking to take on their first pub. Excellent customer service and marketing skills are a must to continue to keep the pub at a consistent level.

That idea youve always had about running your own pub - always seemed like a distant dream, didnt it? Bet you never realised it was just a £5k security deposit away (plus legal fees) with a Marstons retail agreement. Your earnings will be based on a percentage of weekly net turnover and for those of you interested in delivering a food offer, the agreement may include one of our branded food menus. Weve been working with this type of agreement for 10+ years now and have invested £3 million in our Retail Agreement pubs over the last year alone. People love them because they allow you to:
  • Be your own boss and work from home, with no commute
  • Live rent-free with no bills except Council Tax
  • Get your personal licence
  • Feel incentivised to grow the business and earn more
  • Access our support teams whenever you need them - from Beer & Quality Technicians to a dedicated Area Manager and Marketing team
  • Give your customers access to the brilliant range of Marstons beers, wines, spirits and minerals - plenty of it award-winning!
  • All of your stock, including food, is supplied for free by Marstons, although you will be responsible for managing it once it has been delivered
  • Call on us to cover the cost of repairs, fixtures and fittings
  • Learn all about Business Development Review Planning, Commercial Excellence and more over the first weeks induction training
  • Spend the first two days on the job settling in with full supervision on-site
  • Enjoy close support from the Marstons team in the weeks after the initial induction training
Things to consider In addition to the £5k security deposit and legal fees required for this agreement, you will need to cover your own insurance, except building insurance, which well cover. Also, youll 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, youll just need to show us proof that youve had independent financial advice from an accountant and solicitor, as dictated by the Statutory Pub Code. And, of course, obtain your personal licence (which well help with) and complete your induction training. Its 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, theres always the option of six months notice with a break clause in the contract.
