Greene King Pub Partners has been named as the best tenanted and leased pub company (201+ sites) at The Publican Awards 2017.
It impressed judges across a range of areas, including the reporting of record results in the past financial year as well as the introduction of a new food supply service, among other innovations.
The award is recognition for Greene King establishing itself as the preferred partner for the best operators with its recruitment and retention of exceptional partners.
In a year of change across the sector, Greene King says has placed licensees at the heart of its business by being transparent about its strategy and vision for the future.
This latest honour follows previous success at the recent NITA awards which highlighted Greene King’s industry-leading training and support that makes a difference to licensees.
Greene King chief executive, Rooney Anand, said: “This award is a hugely significant achievement for everyone involved with Greene King Pub Partners and one we are proud to receive. It demonstrates that we are industry leading across a number of areas in the business support we offer in partnership with our licensees.
“We are being pro-active in our planning and vision for Greene King Pub Partners, but we are always reactive, too, listening to those we are in partnership with. We know and respect the fact our licensees are talented people who want to run successful business in their own way and we do everything possible to support them with this.
“We believe our estate is the best in the industry, a truly diverse portfolio of successful well-run pubs and it is our people, both our team and our licensees, who set us apart.”
