Two investments completed with multiple operator Josh Khan

Two investments completed by Greene King Pub Partners with multiple operator, Josh Khan of Vital Events (UK) Limited has firmly put the premium pub stamp on his pubs.  The King Charles Tavern, Newbury and the Broad face Tavern in Abingdon have had over £150,000 spent on them to upgrade the sites.

Khan, a former doctor arrived in the UK from Siberia 20 years.  He took his first pub with Greene King in 2014 and then a second in 2016.

Speaking about his partnership with Greene King Pub Partners, Khan said, “Greene King Pub Partners took a risk with me.  I had never operated a pub before and they wanted the King Charles Tavern to be a real pub with premium offer.  I persuaded them that I was the right candidate and that I understood that pubs were central to British society. With the investments at both sites completed we’ve been able to really establish their reputations as quality pubs”.

£100,000 was invested at the Broad face Tavern in Abingdon and a further £50,000 at the King Charles Tavern.

On arriving in the UK, Josh Khan wasn’t able to convert his medical qualifications due to the cost and so chose a career with the Nat West bank.  He then ran a restaurant under the mentorship of acclaimed French chef, Ollie Couillard and took his first pub, the King Charles Tavern, Newbury in 2014.
