Venners Ltd will be appearing at all seven of the Punch Roadshows across the country for the next four weeks. The series of regional events, which began at Chester Racecourse, bring together Punch Tavern’s publicans from right across the UK to explore some of the most innovative and helpful services available to them. Venners’ Scott Hulme will be making a special appearance as a seminar speaker, presenting one of their latest stocktaking success stories.
Venners – who make it their mission to support hospitality businesses by improving margins and profits – have a long history of bringing their customers success through superior stocktaking, compliance and consultancy services. With 120 years’ experience in the sector they are pleased to have been selected to present their latest stock control case study, proving to the hundreds of publicans in attendance the true worth of employing a trusted, professional stocktaking company.
The presentation, which delves into the stocktaking results of 90 pubs, demonstrates a universal and significant GP improvement across the estate of 3.2%, equating to £280k of profit over the space of five months. Extrapolated, that is an average Gross Profit increase of £7,500 per pub, per year.
Punch, one of the UK’s leading pub companies, has a collection of around 3,300 pubs throughout England. As part of its purpose to provide business support to its publicans and tenants the company runs yearly Roadshows in a bid to train, advise, and bring together all its local pub businesses for networking.
Scott Hulme, Operations Director at Venners, who will be delivering the seminar at some of the Roadshows said: “Stocktaking as a service is mostly seen by the pub and bar sector as a cost, not an investment. Being able to challenge that viewpoint at such a well-attended series of events, and prove the huge return on investment our services offer, is a real privilege”.
