Greene King Pub Partners accredited by British Franchise Association

Greene King Pub Partners has received accreditation from the British Franchise Association, the independent body that maintains the ‘integrity and credibility’ of the franchising sector.

The pub company launched its Hive Pubs franchise concept in 2021 and has since grown it to over 30 pubs. These agreements offers a ready-to-trade pub within a ‘proven branded concept’ for £5000 ingoing cost.

Hive franchisees can expect a minimum guaranteed income of £20,000, plus a percentage of food and drink sales. On top of this, they get a share of the profits in their pub and can earn a bonus.

Greene King Pub Partners said that through this new BFA accreditation and membership, it committed to ‘best practices, transparent operations and the welfare and success of its franchisees’.

Managing Director of Greene King Pub Partners, Dan Robinson, said: “We are immensely proud to receive accreditation from the British Franchise Association.

“This accreditation underlines our commitment to work with our Hive Pubs and franchise partners to grow successful pub businesses together.

“While we remain a leased and tenanted pub business at our core, this is an exciting development as we continue to grow Hive Pubs and our franchise offer.”

Hive Pubs franchisees and other Greene King Pub Partners franchisees will receive benefits from the accreditation and membership of the BFA, including access to the BFA’s community of franchisees, as well as expertise and resources provided by the BFA itself.
