Admiral Taverns, the UK’s leading community pub company with circa 800 pubs nationwide, is delighted to have been awarded ‘Best Tenanted / Leased Pub Company of the year’ at the prestigious Publican Awards 2019. This is the third time the Group has collected the award in the last six years.
The annual awards, which shines a light on the best in class operators in the UK pub industry, is a leading benchmark for pub company success across the sector. Finalists undergo a rigorous judging process, including mystery pub visits to their sites and a panel presentation assessed by industry experts including representatives from the British Beer and Pub Association, the British Institute of Innkeeping, as well as award winning pub operators and licensees.
Champions of the tenanted business model, over the last seven years Admiral has developed a high-quality estate of predominantly wet-led pubs which sit at the heart of their local communities. Through its highly supportive approach and operational centric culture, the Group has worked hard to develop positive and progressive relationships with its licensees, built on mutual trust and respect.
Commenting on the award, Chief Executive of Admiral Taverns, Kevin Georgel said:
“First and foremost, I would like to pay tribute to our colleagues here at Admiral and our licensees. This could not have been achieved without their continued hard work and dedication and I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of them.”
‘Our thanks must also go out to the team at the Publican Awards. We are absolutely delighted to accept this accolade which pays tribute to a transformational period for Admiral Taverns. The successes achieved from our recent corporate activity, through to consistent operational and commercial improvements and pub investment, not only reflect the significant progress we have made against our strategy to be a leading operator in our field, but are testament to our unwavering commitment to the tenanted sector and our passion for supporting our licensees to run successful, sustainable community pubs.”
