The interior of the Head of Steam, Liverpool
As part of Camerons Brewery’s rapid expansion plans in its managed pub group, it has announced the appointment of new property agents to support its growth strategy. Currently focusing on the growth of its Head of Steam brand, the brewer is looking to acquire up to 15 new venues per year.
Camerons has grown its retail managed group to 25 pubs and has recently announced the acquisition of sites in Birmingham, Nottingham and Leicester. It is keen to continue to acquire freehold and leasehold sites in key UK
towns and cities.
Mick Hill, head of property and acquisitions at Camerons Brewery, said: “It really is exciting times at Camerons at the moment. I joined the company in May 2017 and part of the reason I decided to take the opportunity with them was the plans they showed me for the development of their retail pub group.
“We are really moving at a rapid pace and it is essential for us to secure sites not only in the key towns and cities we have targeted, but also ensuring we choose the right locations in these areas for our The Head of Steam brand.”
He added: “As we grew further away from our North East heartland, we recognised that we needed additional resources to locate suitable venues. We have, therefore, secured the services of three retained property agents to identify potential new opportunities.
“Space Retail will be locating venues across the South East and London, Creative Leisure will be focusing on potential sites in Scotland, the North West, Wales and the South West, whilst Campbell Property Consultants will be identifying opportunities in the North East, Yorkshire and East Anglia.”
