The Hesketh wins again at The Stockport Business Awards

16 Oct 2019

It’s celebrations all round at Almond Family Pubs! The pub chain (of which The Hesketh is a member) have bagged their second consecutive award at the Stockport Business Awards.

Following on from their 2018 success where they won the Best Food and Drink Retailer, this year they picked up Best Employer award.

The family, who run successful pubs in the Stockport area are well known for creating a pleasant drinking and dining atmosphere in their stylishly renovated pubs. They employ 250 local people across their six pubs; serving honest good pub classics and their famous carvery.

The family business was awarded the prestigious accolade at the black-tie event, hosted by Jenny Powell and took place at Stockport Town Hall on Thursday 10th October. The competition was tough with two very strong and well-respected runners in Stockport Homes and Job Wise.


Vicki Williams, company director said after winning;

“This is absolutely one of our proudest moments in business. As employers, we have evolved in line with modern management expectations and hope to continue to improve our employee experience. We would like to credit our HR team for ensuring we remain competitive with pay, rewards and incentives and the pub managers for creating such a fantastic working environment.”

In current times with pubs closing a rate of 14 per week it is refreshing to see a local food and drink company thriving and bucking that trend. Doug Almond, chairman, said  ‘We are witnessing a change in Stockport with new businesses opening due to increased interest and investment in to the town. We are proud to be Stockport based and even more proud of the hundreds of Stockport people that we employ and who ultimately help us win this award.’

Almond Family Pubs were also shortlisted for the Best Food and Drink Award again this year but were pipped to the post by Silver Apples bakery.
