Pub group secures six figure loan to expand

Assetz Capital has provided the funding to the Big Dogs Pub Group which operates a chain of micro pubs across Nottinghamshire.

Founded in 2017, the group employs 15 people across its three sites.

The loan is replenishing the directors’ own cash investment and there are plans to expand the brand across the region in the future.

David Fewster, director at Big Dogs Pub, said: “With this loan we really hope to make a difference to the current offering of craft beer sites available, with our expansion plans enabling us to suit the needs of customers across the region.

“We have seen real success with our current sites and with this loan and support, we have an opportunity to expand our locations across the region.

“Working with Assetz Capital has been an enjoyable and efficient process in which the firm has helped us at every step.”

Luke Carter, senior relationship manager at Assetz Capital, added: “It is great to see Big Dog Pubs tapping into the craft beer trend, which has become a thriving marketplace in recent years and offering huge opportunity for growth.

“With SMEs often referred to as the backbone of the economy, it’s important for lenders like ourselves to offer our support to ensure that the UK remains a prosperous place to do business.”
