Stonegate Pub Partners has launched Pub Hub – new platform for publicans offering ideas and advice on how to grow sales, reduce operating costs and run a successful business – as part of a £10m investment of capital to deliver better pubs for publicans and their communities.

Pub Hub will provide access to a suite of marketing content and supplier promotional activity to help publicans maximise sales during key events, and market leading training programmes for both publicans and their teams.

Nick Andrews, managing director of Stonegate Pub Partners said: “Our investment in Pub Partners and the launch of ‘Pub Hub’ reflects our vision of being the partner of choice and supporting publicans to run excellent pubs that serve their communities.”

It was reported earlier this month that Stonegate Group is looking to sell off around 1,000 of its pubs in order to pay down some of its £2.6bn debt pile. MCA editor Finn Scott-Delany looked at the rationale behind the move and who might be in the running to pick up the pubs, in a special analysis here.
