Everards wins in Publican Awards 2013

Published on March 12, 2013

Family-owned Leicestershire brewer Everards – a Great Food Club-affiliated business – last night won in the Publican Awards 2013.

The awards, which recognise the achievements of top UK pub companies across 18 categories, were announced at Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane and hosted by comedian Rob Brydon.

Everards was named Best Tenanted and Leased Pub Company (under 200 sites) after a tough judging process that included several headquarter site visits, mystery site visits and research interviews.

Publican Awards judges said: “Everards demonstrated that the comprehensive package of support the company provides its tenants was backed up by a personal, innovative and flexible approach to growing its business for the benefit of itself and, most importantly, its licensees.”

Richard Everard, chairman of Everards, said: “We’re delighted to have won another Publican Award. Everards is always looking to strengthen its recruitment and licensee support and our latest innovations have paid dividends. We are so proud of the entire team and are passionate about supporting great people to run great pubs.”

Everards is currently driving forward two pioneering schemes – Project William and Project Artisan – that see it partner artisan food and drink producers. Read more on that here.
