Over the next few minutes we will be introducing you to one of the most exciting, rewarding and enjoyable franchises in Britain, where, for a small initial investment, you can take the reigns of an established, profitable pub and start building a business that you can be proud of.

A business where people will come to enjoy themselves, where you can utilise your management, sales and business skills and where you can create a secure future for you and your family.

Welcome to the Marston’s Pub Franchise — The franchise with more behind the bar.

Marston’s have a rich heritage dating back to 1834 and a well-established reputation for quality and success. We own 5 regional breweries, brewing some of the most popular and well-loved beers in the country today, and we operate over 2,150 pubs stretching the length and breadth of the UK. With over 130 years of successful pub retailing we became the first pub company to gain full membership of the British Franchise Association.

This is because our franchise model is a robust and ethical offer, which allows our franchisees to understand exactly where they stand with us. We pride ourselves on our fair and transparent business approach and aim to take away many of the headaches associated with running a business, allowing you to focus your efforts on the important things; like building your reputation in the local community, driving sales and most importantly, delivering a fantastic experience to your customers, time and time again.

We firmly believe that local pubs are a great British institution and an integral part of community life; and we want to keep it that way. That’s why all of our franchise opportunities are located in the heart of thriving communities, each with its own individuality and character. This unique proposition means that not only do our franchisees have the opportunity to run a successful, profitable business with us, they also have the chance to build a fun and fulfilling lifestyle in which strong customer relationships, involvement in local events, socialising, entertainment and a fantastic atmosphere all play a key role!

For an initial, low cost investment you can take the reins of an established pub business with a minimum of 5 years trading history, enabling you to hit the ground running with a sound understanding of past successes and the growth opportunities available to you. You’ll immediately start receiving an agreed percentage split on both turnover and profit, and after a period of time you’ll also have the option to renew your term or resell the franchise should you wish.

We’ll provide you with all of the tools and training you need to be successful. This includes a fully equipped inventory package, industry-leading training, an EPOS system and comprehensive marketing support… plus a whole lot more.

Furthermore, you do not need to have any experience in pub management! Sales and marketing skills, team management, creativity, a strong work ethic and a desire to succeed is all that is required for you to become a highly successful Marston’s Franchisee. And we don’t expect you to take our word for it, let’s meet some of our existing franchisees…

As you have heard, Marston’s provide the highest level of support for every franchisee. From a robust induction programme, including practical sessions and placements at our training headquarters, through to on-going mentoring and award-winning training for you and your staff… we’ll ensure that not only do you hit the ground running, but that you remain as competitive and successful as you can possibly be throughout your entire term of your agreement with us!

Regular business meetings with an experienced Area Operations Manager will provide you with advice, ideas and guidance, enabling you to exceed the expectations of your customers and to tailor your approach to attract new custom. We’ll also provide you with comprehensive marketing support ranging from menu updates and promotional materials through to mystery shoppers and operating standards, alongside helping you build an online presence utilising your own website and the latest social media tools.
