As explained in this section of our five-part series, Business Development Managers (BDMs) will always try to protect the rent at the highest level possible as they do not always know what trading levels will be.
We also see less of an ability for BDM’s to work with the publican to set a realistic level of rent and reach a compromise deal.
It’s an area of your business that you need to be aware of because, as it is said in the film, having the knowledge, knowing how to be heard and who to speak to is key information that every publican should know. The Forum of British Pubs can help you with this.
