The UK pub industry in all its variety continues to profit from performance boosting practices like stocktaking and auditing. No matter the type of business, whether food-led or wet-led, local or national, pub chain or independent, managed or tenanted, public house, free house, gastropub, country pub, theme pub, roadhouse, beer house or inn, they all need stock control.
Pub stocktaking is woven into the historic fabric of Venners’ 125 years as a company. To this day we supply stock take and audit services to a wide range of pub companies of differing sizes, from single site operators to some of the biggest British multi-site pub companies, including Marstons, Greene King and Shepherd Neame. Our stocktakers help pub operators:
“We have used Venners stocktakers for over 10 years and we have always found their service professional, courteous and reliable. Venners are a crucial cog in our head office wheel and we could not recommend their services more highly.”
“We have found all of their team to be professional, hard working, and have a ‘can do’ attitude, which is refreshing and great to work with. Our in-house management teams appreciate the level of service at unit level and senior management really like the integrity of the reports. Proper company, proper job.”
“We are a community pub and none of the directors have any pub experience, so it’s been a huge help having Venners on our team and helping us to understand our stock controls, stock levels and margins.”
Improve food and drink profits with the help of our pub stock takes. Our pub stocktakers deliver standardised same-day stock take reports at each pub they visit, giving a full debrief and stock control action plan at the end of each stock take.
