Bulldog Hotel Group, which owns the Old Bridge in Holmfirth, is celebrating after being named as one of London Stock Exchange’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain.
The hotel group earlier this year announced plans to invest £20 million to double its estate by 2020 and was named in the independent report, which identifies the fastest-growing and most dynamic SMEs in the UK.
The report, released this week, comprised of 1000 companies which have shown consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, significantly outperforming their industry peers.
The Bulldog Hotel Group has well-known hotels in Yorkshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Gloucestershire and County Durham and has built a strong reputation in the industry for transforming under performing establishments into busy and profitable businesses.
Bulldog Hotel Group managing director Kevin Charity said: “We’re delighted to have been named one of Britain’s most inspiring companies; it is a real reflection of the work we’ve been doing in recent years to revitalise the coaching inn sector.
“Our successful business model is based on selecting high quality coaching inns and revitalising their offer across food, drink and accommodation, to ensure excellence across all three income streams and give guests and customers an all-round better experience.”
Xavier Rolet, chief eExecutive, London Stock Exchange Group, said: “This report is a significant part of London Stock Exchange’s broader campaign to support UK high growth companies in their journeys from Start-up to Stardom and to create an entrepreneurship revolution. I’m delighted that a strong alliance between UK Government, financial market participants, investors, entrepreneurs and companies has been created to support these inspiring businesses.”
The Bulldog Hotel Group specialises in individually styled coaching inns, each with an all-day offering and is currently enjoying record sales across each of its three core income streams.
Having acquired its first hotel site in 2004 the Group now has a turnover in excess of £10 million and employs over 320 people across seven locations.
