Greene King Pub Partners has been recognised for the support it gives its licensees by being named best tenanted and leased pub company (201 plus sites) at the Publican Awards 2017.
The Bury St Edmunds based company impressed judges across a range of areas including reporting record results in the past financial year and introducing a new food supply service.
Rooney Anand, chief executive, said: “This award is a hugely significant achievement for everyone involved with Greene King Pub Partners, but we are always reactive too, listening to those we are in partnership with.
“We know and respect the fact that our licensees are talented people who want to run successful business in their own way and we do everything possible to support them with this.
“We believe our estate is the best in the industry, a truly diverse portfolio of successful well-run pubs, and it is our people, both our team and our licensees, who set us apart.”
Greene King operates 3,000 pubs, restaurants and hotels of which 1,200 are tenanted, leased and franchised pubs.
