Hello, some research on the detail agreement right now and are really concerned about what I`ve read so far on a series of blogs, especially by accountants. We are currently on a Pathfinder lease with Marstons and we were informed recently that our rent reductions and rebates would be drawn, since we are transferred to a retail contract that “takes the weight off our shoulders” (BDM). The obvious threat is any help that will be removed for the remainder of our contract, unless we transfer them. We requested a renovation after comments from Ralph Findlay (CEO) in May 2010 c.50k per pub go to retail and were informed that they had nothing to spend. We have a small kitchen with five gourmet free trade pubs within a 3 mile radius, we are a small wet bar. According to the figures if we add 35% to our catch (very unlikely in today`s market) we would clearly C.900, our salary calculation alone would be about $1,100. After informing the representative, they said they were sure it wouldn`t be that bad!! Needless to say, we will try to survive the rest of our mandate and go to a free trade bar. You can tell me all the good you noticed in a Similair situation, although I have read a lot of reviews in a retail contract and, yes, I live many of you not understanding how the retail contract works, but there is support for you at different levels that you only have to ask for help. The stock problems are on you and how you control it when you sign up for actions that aren`t there, which is down to you, and it`s also nieve to think that no one is stealing, all the Venners Stock Takers that I had bar one were kind enough with the job to get the stock on the spot properly , but again, it`s up to you to manage them!!!! At the end of the day, if you don`t realize that the pub game is now hard over you fool yourself, but that`s why you`re on a temporary deal when you start. interesting discussion with very little balance.
This indicates either that Marston is unethical or that most people here are angry. After recently crossing a runaround after searching for a bar, I can just add that I`m not sure the problem is with the BDM or The Marston! Initially with a view to taking over through the Pathway agreement, he proposed a 6-month transitional agreement and finally got a 6-week square agreement (which I never heard of). The amount of work required to bring it to the appropriate standard to sell food or rent rooms, means that we have 5k deposit and another 5k in cleaning and replacement without guarantee of conversion into a full agreement or refund of the deposit or costs.as we are still waiting on the papers and already lose 5k of the associated costs our next step will be interesting. make your own inventory one day before holding tackles.
