Butcombe Brewing Co offers its tenants subsidised BII membership: Brewer and operator Butcombe Brewing Co, owned by Liberation Group, is to offer all its pub tenants and lessees subsidised annual membership of the British Institute of Innkeeping (BII). Butcombe has negotiated BII membership to be supplied initially to all its UK tenants with the view to roll-out membership to the Liberation Group’s pubs in the Channel Islands. Butcombe said BII membership would provide its tenants with additional expert and independent business advice, as well as 24-hour HR and general legal support. The tenants would also have access to the BII’s network of partners, which could provide significant savings on products such as insurance, energy bills and credit/debit card machines. The BII will also allow Butcombe tenants to access an employment contracts builder, business calculators and planning tools, a food app and an eLearning platform. Butcombe Brewing Co managing director of UK pubs Jayson Perfect said: “By providing our tenants and lessees with subsidised membership of the BII, we can ensure they receive independent professional advice and assistance when they need it. Providing support to our tenants is very important to us and we felt the BII provided an additional valuable service that would enable and help our tenants to build better businesses.” Liberation Group currently has 27 pubs in its Butcombe estate. In March, chief executive Mark Crowther said the company had ambitions to “more than double that with a target eventually of 200 across a broad geography”.
