The latest round of judging has now been completed, and representatives from the eight venues will now take their place at the prestigious awards night in September, hoping to scoop category wins ranging from Best Inn to Best Wine Bar and Best Sports Pub.
This follows on from the successes of S4Labour clients at the 2017 edition, where City Pub Group’s Temple Brew House site won the Best Beer Pub category and Rumba in Macclesfield, part of Life & Soul Ltd., earned the accolade of Best Turnaround site. Both companies have since spoken warmly of their relationship with S4Labour; City CEO Rupert Clark believes that “Our business is stronger as a result [of using the system]”, and Chris Carsons, CEO of Life & Soul simply said, “We couldn’t have won without S4Labour.” A full case study of how Life & Soul use S4Labour to better manage their business can be read here.
The breadth of the award categories for which S4Labour customers are competing highlights the system’s effectiveness for operators across all trading styles and sectors of the hospitality industry. Notable amongst them are two venues in the Best in Pub Company Categories. Champs Bar & Grill in Urmston, Greater Manchester, is one of five finalists selected out of Punch Taverns’ 1,300-strong estate, while the Queen’s Head in Pinner, North London, has been nominated from Greene King’s 1,200 tenancies. S4Labour is perfect for the Leased & Tenanted pub market, helping proprietors reduce labour spend and increase sales, as well as giving a new depth of insight into business performance.
We offer all the finalists our warmest congratulations on reaching this stage and wish them the very best of luck on the night.
