Funding the Future: unlocking capital to power the growth we need12:00 am - 1:00 pm
Wear Inns acquires and manages freehold pubs in the North East of England.
BGF’s funding was used to acquire 12 new properties, with the company then successfully delivering on its strategy of driving operational improvement in underperforming pubs.
The business was acquired by UK real estate investor Aprirose in October 2018, generating good returns for all shareholders.
BGF has been consistent in its support of Wear Inns and have provided not only funding for but also ideas and guidance. Being part of an even larger group whose focus on community and customers is very much in line with Wear Inns and will provide strong opportunities for the business going forward.Al Bird, founder
