ROBINSONS SAVE LICENSEES THOUSANDS PER YEAR WITH NEW 'BUYING CLUB'

Robinsons Brewery have partnered with utility management specialists UB Services to help licensees save thousands of pounds off the rising costs of annual utility bills.

David Harrison, Director of Retail Operations for Robinsons Brewery, said: The cost of utilities are often overlooked by the average pub goer. A licensee can spend up to £10,000 per year depending on the size of their pub. We wanted to take some of the pressure off them and offer a solution that can save them thousands of pounds per year.

National statistics from 2015 show that the price of Electricity has risen by 28% in five years, whilst the price of gas has risen by a whopping 38% in the same time period. To put the cost into perspective, a licensee who, on average, would pay £6000 for electricity and gas in 2010 is now paying £7980 per year; an annual increase of £1980.

Noticing the additional strain, Robinsons stepped in to support their licensees by committing to buy gas in bulk over a fixed three year period; resulting in lower rates for their licensees.

Robinsons’ ‘Buying Club’ was launched at the brewer’s annual Trade Show where over a fifth of Robinsons’ pub estate signed up on the first day. 

Andrew Cook, Senior Sales Manager for UB Services, said: Since the launch, the incentive has already been a phenomenal success with over a fifth of the estate signed up to the scheme.  Most members are already seeing a 30% reduction in their tariff with some are saving as much as £4,000 annually. Since the Trade Show, we are adding 7 to 10 members per day during our follow up visits - it’s been a brilliant start!

Closing, David said: Robinsons are committed to supporting our pubs. By partnering up with UB Services we have been able to pass all discounts over to our licensees at no profit from Robinsons. We hope to help the rest of our estate save money as we continue to roll out the scheme.
