The price freeze is just one part of Hall & Woodhouse’s ongoing support for its Business Partners, highlighted as a key driver in the Family Brewer being crowned Best Tenanted Pub Company at the Publican Awards last month. In addition to the price freeze, Hall & Woodhouse has capped RPI linked rent increases at 2.8 per cent for 2012 and negotiated supply deals with Professional Energy Services and Flogas to offer Business Partners competitive pricing for utilities.
Matt Kearsey, Hall & Woodhouse Business Partnerships Director comments: “We are pleased to have held our wholesale prices, for our Business Partners, alongside a £5 million investment in the new brewery. This shows a real commitment to cask ale and is a continued response to our Business Partners asking for help in controlling their costs.”
Comments Gyles Culver, Hall & Woodhouse Business Partner at the White Hart in Henfield: “We were delighted to hear that Hall & Woodhouse have held their beer prices for the fourth year running. With other cost increases and duty rises, their support is much appreciated.”
