Asset 2

The Fleur de Lys has been an established and well-respected business for a number of years.

In addition it has a growing letting market driven by nine high quality rooms with high occupancy levels.

Trade is built on accessibility, quality and consistency, where regular guests mix with visitors in a traditional pub environment.

A great pub where the team deliver excellent customer service.

Unquestionably there is  potential for growth to be exploited further by continuing to develop the pub’s reputation, driving spend per head and driving food sales. Along with events to encourage an even greater level of engagement from local guests.

* Fair Maintainable Trade (FMT):

FMT is the level of turnover and profit that we believe that the business is capable of delivering if being operated competently. The FMT is usually calculated by the Business Development Partner for the pub to rent, who will produce a shadow profit and loss account for the business which supports the rent. A copy of the shadow profit and loss account will be provided during the recruitment process.

Code of Practice:

Please see our Code of Practice for more information on FMT and rent. The Fair Maintainable Trade is not a guarantee of levels of trade or profit that will be made from the business – we strongly recommend you seek appropriate independent legal and business advice as part of your Business Plan.

† The Full Investment Breakdown:

The Full Investment Breakdown for each public house is higher than the minimum investment we will accept. This is because potential Business Partners with the minimum investment available can still be accepted as we are able to offer them financial support for the rest of the monies.

Working Capital:

The working capital incorporates the purchase of stock, glassware, loose catering effects and valuer fees – please note the number quoted on this website are based on estimates. The exact costs will be determined on the day you take on the public house by independent valuers and stock takers. Please see our Code of Practice for more information about investment.
