We use our experience to categorise our pubs according to their specific strengths to cater for certain groups of customers. By grouping our pubs in this way, we make it easier for you to shortlist those that will suit you. It will also help you to build a focused business plan to ensure that you operate your pub in the most effective way, ultimately making a success of your business.
We start by categorising the pubs based on their location and proximity to their target audience – there are three different groups;
High Street Pubs
Punch High Street Pubs tend to reflect the busy bustling activity outside their doors. Successful High Street Pubs change their offers throughout the day to meet the needs of very different customers. By day, a High Street pub is a sanctuary to the weary shopper, be it breakfast, coffee, a quick bite at lunchtime, a refreshing cup of tea or chilled glass of wine. By night the High Street pub changes into a town centre bar, as retail and office workers stop by, alongside local residents that soon become regular visitors.
Search for a Punch High Street Pub opportunity now > Our Destination Pubs
Our Destination Pubs in the main are focused on delivering an occasion. Although they are usually out of town, they are worth travelling to because they offer something special. The majority of our Destination Pubs are sought out for their food, whether it’s value meals – 2 for 1, 2 for £10 and the likes, a traditional Sunday Lunch, or fine dining. It is not all about food though, the drinks selection and creating an appropriate pub environment are equally important and many Destination Pubs also rely on some local trade.
We then segment these categories based on the appropriate offer for the core customers.
Being competitively priced against the local market competition is fundamental to this value proposition. Pubs within the value segment consistently use discounting and/or price mechanics (2 for £xxx etc.) to attract customers. The Pubs marketing is price led; and the service and environment is focused on dealing efficiently and effectively with high volumes at a low margin spend per head.
The mainstream offer on a pub is based around a combination of product quality, service and price. The offer must consistently deliver good service and classic food and drink ranges. Marketing communications focus on quality and service, with the use of some price mechanics to drive trade. Major brands are stocked but there is the opportunity to trade up from the standard offer for example to a cask ale, or a better quality wine.
This offer is based on great quality and great service. It is not a price sensitive proposition. It focuses on delivering a complete customer experience. Marketing is quality led with an evolving offer, often driven by calendar occasions and the seasons. Other things that come into play are food provenance, local and seasonal ingredients, premium brands and high service levels with a personal touch. This is an aspirational environment which consistently delivers a great customer experience.
