successes

From creating and opening a single room major city centre venue achieving £450k turnover in year one, with a PBIT of £85k – now successfully franchised and with similar operations in the pipeline - to developing a multi faceted international brand with £3 million turnover and PBIT of £400k, we have proven successes in all areas of the licensed trade.


Amongst our portfolio, we have taken over a major theatre catering and conference venue – inheriting a turnover of £150k and annual operating loss of £30k – and transformed it into a £1.5 million turnover business with a PBIT of £175K after 5 years, successfully selling the business for in excess of £1million.
Acquiring a country pub and restaurant with a turnover from £125k – with an operating loss of £30k – we grew the business to £700k, with a PBIT of £90k, successfully selling it for £250k.


Similarly, a country house hotel and conference venue – acquired as a £100k pa loss making operation – sold three years later for £475k, with a PBIT of £150k.


Our diverse operations extend to creating a nationally known music brand in an intimate nightclub environment, showcasing unsigned artists alongside the likes of Coldplay, David Gray and Elbow in a unique setting.
