Taking on a tenancy or a lease will require you to make a considerable commitment to your business and you should consider the effect this might have on those closest to you, for instance your partner and/or children. Their continued support and encouragement will be vital to your success.
Think carefully about the type of business you wish to run and the part any skills you already have should play in this decision. The houses within the Fuller's estate vary greatly from community pubs to inns with top notch dining.
- What type of pub do you and your family use and why do you use it?
- Which customers would best fit your personality?
- What level of finance do you have available and are the typical ingoings for that type of house within your budget?
- Some houses open all day and some until late at night; can you commit to the hours needed to run your preferred pub?
Once you have the full backing of your family and friends then you can move on to the type of agreement you would like to have.
