Punch Foundation Tenancy

Our revolutionary Punch Foundation Tenancy offers maximum support and a cost-effective, flexible way to run your own pub. You’ll take on a pub that’s refurbished, set up and ready to trade, with carefully tailored food and drinks menus already in place. You get direct access to all the business and back office support you need – whenever you need it.

The Foundation Tenancy provides you with an unprecedented level of support and everything you need to run a successful business with Punch in support. From the outset, your Punch Development Manager will provide you with a tailored support package which includes direct access to training and development, business planning, operations and accounting expertise to help you to maximise the efficiency, sales and profitability of your pub.

How it works:

We’ll help you to kick-start your business by providing a newly decorated pub (both inside and out), with everything you need up-and-running in advance, so it’s ready to trade with tailored food and drinks menus already set up for you.

You’ll take our award-winning Foundation training course, to make sure you have all the core skills you need to start your pub business, and we’ll introduce you to your Publican Development & Training Manager, who will help you launch your business.

Then, on an ongoing basis, we’ll provide you with direct access to business planning, operations and accounting experts who are always on hand to help you to maximise the efficiency, sales and profitability of your pub.

The cost to get started varies depending on the pub you choose.

The on-going costs to run the business are charged through your rent on a weekly or monthly basis.

As our Punch Foundation Tenancy is a shared liability repairs agreement we want to help you manage your on-going repairing obligations, and to ensure your pub is maintained in a good condition throughout the term of our agreement, we operate a repairs and maintenance fund for all new publican agreements which is charged at £40 per week, these funds are our estimate of an essential overhead cost of your business.
