I need help with selling a pub

When selling a pub, it is a bad idea to leave the preparation for sale to the last minute. Rather than making a distress sale, it is wise to take the time to put relevant business procedures in place and get GPs and other trading figures into a sensible position. When you sell a pub at its peak, you can maximise the sale price and the speed of transaction. Our Fit for Sale package will deliver reporting on the strengths and weaknesses of every operating area in your business. Get basic tools and coaching on implementing stock control, compliance, menu costings, standard operating procedures, training and more. Each package includes:
