Greene King is our Brewery of the Month and this week its pub division, Greene King Pub Partners, launches its tenth Hive Pub.
The Albert Tavern in South Norwood, London, has been transformed into a Hive Pub following a £100,000 investment. The new Hive Pub will be run by franchisee Tammy Hardy and has been transformed with a complete refresh of the pub throughout creating a more modern look and feel with new lighting, furniture, decorations and flooring inside in line with the Hive Pubs brand and concept.
The pub will offer an extensive range of food and drink in line with the Hive Pubs branded concept, including a menu of pub classics curated by the food team at Greene King and paired with tasty deserts. As a Hive Pub, sport will be a key part of the offer at The Albert Tavern and so the pub has Sky Sports and BT Sport subscriptions to show all the major sporting events.
Aimed at those with experience of running a pub, the Hive Pub franchise agreement gives licensees a ready to trade pub within a proven branded concept for just £5,000 ingoing cost. Franchisees get a minimum guaranteed income of £20,000 plus additional income based on performance such as share of turnover and other bonus opportunities including profit share.
Wayne Shurvinton, Managing Director for Greene King Pub Partners, said: “It is fantastic to reach the milestone of our tenth Hive Pub opening with our £100,000 investment in The Albert Tavern. We are really pleased with the success of our Hive Pubs so far and look forward to opening even more in the coming weeks and months.”
