Pubs are the hub of the local community — a relaxed place where people can get together to socialise and enjoy a drink and a bite to eat. With many interesting bar and pub franchises for sale, this could be your next big business opportunity.
The local pub or bar is an institution. While independent pub numbers have been falling in recent years, chains have found success plugging the gap and providing a much-needed watering hole and social space for people in their local area.
If you want to start a business that provides a great atmosphere and attracts loyal clientele, starting a bar or pub franchise is a great bet. You will benefit from a recognised name and your franchise partner organisation may even help you to identify potential sites for your business.
Coyote Ugly is a picture-perfect opportunity
Fancy running a business that is already globally famous? Coyote Ugly opened in 1993 in New York City. Following the release of the film of the same name, the brand took off globally and continues to grow today. While we can’t promise that Tyra Banks will be dropping by anytime soon, Coyote Ugly Saloon provides a famous name that will help bring the punters in — your business savvy will keep them there.
Bring a taste of Germany to Britain with Bavarian Beerhouse
The Germans are famous for beer — and not only during Oktoberfest. You can keep the spirit going with your own Bavarian Beerhouse franchise. This pub franchise for sale was the first German restaurant and bar business to set up shop in London, launching in 2005. If you’re a fan of beer and want to bring a proven brand to your local area, this could be the franchise opportunity for you.
Join the iconic Hooters brand
There’s no denying that Hooters is an incredibly well-known chain, and it’s been going strong since 1983. Its recognisable logo, along with the Hooters Girls — its friendly servers, who add to the atmosphere — ensure that it’s a standout across the 29 different countries — and 420 stores — it’s located in. If you want to bring this iconic chain to your local area, you’ll need at least £800,000 to get started.
Introduce a taste of la dolce vita with a Veeno franchise
Italy is famous for its wine, and with a Veeno franchise, you can bring a taste of this lifestyle to your local area. Known as “The Italian Wine Café”, this brand is lauded for its atmosphere and authentic approach to presenting Italian wine and cuisine, and the wine it serves comes directly from a family vineyard in Sicily. Choose between their “Be The Boss” and “Joint Venture” structures to join the Veeno family.
Start a Bennigan’s and bring a friendly tavern experience to your area

Ready to open a new pub or bar? Whether you want to introduce authentic Irish charm or bring a taste of Italy to your local area, or if you’re looking for something completely different, you’ll find all these food and drink franchises for sale and more at What Franchise.
