Enterprise Inns boss Ted Tuppen is aiming to buy around 50 high-quality pubs a year and sell off 150 that under-perform. That he believes will put Enterprise, which owns nearly 9,000 pubs, in good shape to deal with a pending smoking ban, the need to offer high-quality food and a possible economic slowdown. He says a good pub is one with "the actual and future potential" to make a profit for the licensee. Figures last week from Enterprise were well above expectations, with the share price ending up 42p over the week at 764p. Mitchells & Butlers and Wolverhampton & Dudley also had good weeks.
