Marston's Plc

We’ve been running pubs and brewing beer in one form or another for over 180 years. Now we’ve got 13,000 people working for us and many more running their own business in partnership with us. Within our estate of over 1,600 pubs we have a combination of managed, franchised, retail, leased and tenanted sites, which offer great career prospects and opportunities for people looking to run their own business and be their own boss.

Marston’s Pub Franchise

All of our franchise opportunities are pubs located in the heart of thriving communities, each with its own individuality and charm. Our franchise sites are top quality, as they receive a refurbishment prior to their conversion to franchise. The start-up costs for a Marston's Pub Franchise are low in relation to our competitors (with a franchise fee of £20,000 plus working capital of £20,000-£25,000) and we have achieved this without compromising on value or quality. Our franchisees earn 20% of profit and 20% of turnover, with our franchise sites turning over on average £650,000 each year. The support package valued at over £30,000, excellent induction and training provision and comprehensive marketing support ensure that you’re set up for success. As well as giving our franchisees the opportunity to run a successful and profitable business, the Pub Franchise can also enable them to build a fun and fulfilling lifestyle in which strong customer relationships, involvement in local events and activities and a busy, vibrant atmosphere all play a key role!

Marston’s Retail Opportunities

Our retail pubs are businesses available on a five year agreement, totally rent-free! For a low ingoing fee, you could be running your own pub with the support of an established brewery and pub company to help you make the venture a success. Marston’s are responsible for the maintenance of the building and interiors, and pay all the utility bills. The retailer themselves only has to pay their staff, the council tax on the private accommodation and business insurance. The retailer’s income is based on a percentage of sales, which varies from 20% to 25% depending on the site, so you’d be directly rewarded.
