Awards Shortlist Success For Leading Hospitality Group Buzzworks

One of Scotland’s leading hospitality groups Buzzworks is raising a glass in celebration after being shortlisted for four industry-leading awards.

The Ayrshire-based bar and restaurant operator – which has 19 venues across Scotland – has been announced as a finalist in the ‘Best Managed Pub Company’ category at the annual Publican Awards.

Described as one of the “biggest awards in the business”, the annual event celebrates the very best managed companies currently operating across the UK.

Buzzworks is the only Scottish operator of its kind to be shortlisted in the category, with the winner set to be announced at a glittering ceremony at the Evolution London venue on 27 March 2024.

Kenny Blair, managing director at Buzzworks, said:

“It’s an honour to be recognised among some of the UK hospitality industry’s biggest players on one of the most hotly-anticipated awards nights of the year."

“We are incredibly proud to be the only Scottish company nominated for this prestigious title, and are excited to wave the flag for Scotland’s dynamic hospitality sector on a national stage."

“This nomination is a testament to the outstanding people who work in our business, as well as our commitment to delivering a superb customer experience to our guests throughout Scotland’s towns and suburbs. I’m looking forward to meeting the other finalists in March and celebrating the very best talent our industry has to offer.”

Meanwhile, the family-run hospitality company has also been nominated for two separate categories at the Scottish Hospitality Awards in Glasgow on 22 April.

Scotts Greenock, which opened last year at Greenock Ocean Terminal, has been nominated for the ‘Best Dining Experience’ award, while The Corner House in Kilwinning has been named as a finalist in the ‘Casual Dining Restaurant of the Year’ category.

Additionally, Scotts Greenock has also been shortlisted for ‘Family Restaurant of the Year’ at the upcoming Scottish Restaurant Awards on 18 March.

Kenny added: “We are consistently striving to provide great dining experiences and culinary excellence in each of our venues right across Scotland. I am thrilled this has been recognised by our guests and we couldn’t be more thankful for their continued support.”

Buzzworks is renowned for its commitment to the wellbeing and development of its team, as well as its staff benefits, ongoing training, flexible working and career progression.

The group was recently named one of the ‘Best Companies to Work For in the UK’ for the eighth year in a row, gaining an ‘Outstanding Levels of Engagement’ accreditation thanks to employee feedback.
