Riding high on the wave of innovation
MyPubGroup.ltd is riding high on the wave of innovation with no sign of slowing down. Following the recent launch of their new market intelligence tool, MyPubDNA, September will see the launch of their crucial fourth service for the trade, SellMyPub.com.
The group is soon to be celebrating the 10th anniversary of FindMyPub.com with its sister company RecruitForMyPub.com also celebrating its fifth year of providing fully outsourced recruitment services to a number of key clients. With FindMyPubJobs.com establishing itself in the jobs market, the sales market was the natural next arena for the group to enter. SellMyPub.com is the missing piece of the group’s puzzle.
The company has established itself as the go-to vehicle to market pub tenancies and believes that the same magic formula can be applied to the sales market, combining their innovative market reach, the strength of the brand and established relationships with sellers and buyers alike to develop the platform.
While technology is the backbone of this dot-com business, transparency is one of their core values. This is also one of the critical features of this new business model; a simple, transparent service giving both buyer and seller a pathway to a deal at minimal cost, underpinned by 5-star customer service.
Helen Lees, group MD comments: “FindMyPub.com is focused on the tenanted and leased sector, and while we continually develop and invest in this platform, it was also important for me to have the ability to assist the many people that approach us regularly in search of a pub purchase opportunity. Similarly, many of our key clients have disposal lists, and they often ask us if we have a facility to support and promote sales to our large database. For us, this clear crossover needed a dedicated platform. We are now applying our extensive knowledge of the trade, our leading market data and our innovative technology to support the sales market. SellMyPub.com offers a fair, transparent and effective service for both buyers and sellers.
“As pub people, we understand the bespoke requirements of selling a pub and believe this platform will fast become the trusted sales partner for the industry. It is my desire that the SellMyPub.com brand emulates the online accessibility of our partner businesses and brings a new dimension to the hospitality sales market”.
The SellMyPub.com model offers a non-commission based, fixed-fee solution and has a national group of experienced regionalised experts operating alongside a centralised administrative hub based at the Shropshire offices of MyPubGroup.ltd. This strong commercial team will advise and support both sellers and buyers throughout the process ensuring that clients are always fully updated on the progress of their sale or purchase. SellMyPub.com combines an accessible online platform with a commitment to a straightforward published fixed fee. Being paid upon success is something the company actively promotes. They are also strongly averse to applying the exclusivity sanctions onto their sellers that so many of their competitors use. SellMyPub.com is confident in their approach and reach, believing these arduous practices of tying a prospective buyer into one seller are no longer acceptable in a market where flexibility and choice should be a given.
The SellMyPub.com model is expanding its reach to cover bars, hotels and restaurants. SellMyPub.com national director Hayden Small commented: “Being involved with a business introducing a new service to the marketplace is very exciting. The licensed disposal market has long been structured in a way that can prove restrictive and costly for vendors. SellMyPub.com provides free and impartial advice to any business owner before placing their business on the open market and is a by-product of the need for a simple, transparent service within the industry. Our rounded view of the market allows our property experts to value your business honestly and ethically utilising a wealth of experience selling pubs, hotels and restaurants throughout the UK”.
MyPubGroup.ltd non-executive chairman Paul Clarke CBII commented, “It’s a privilege to work alongside such an innovative group of people not just at executive level but across the whole business; honesty, passion, industry knowledge and dedication to customer service is at the forefront of everything we do.
“SellMyPub.com fits neatly into our overall strategy and model to grow and add value to the group providing all you would expect for those seeking to buy or sell a freehold or assign their lease with little fuss, no commission and a fixed fee.”
