German brewer Paulaner is looking for franchisees for the launch of its Br\u00e4uhaus, restaurant and bar concept in the UK.\r\n\r\nPaulaner is looking to secure a number of hospitality entrepreneurs or investment groups who can open up to 10 sites throughout the UK in the next few years.\r\n\r\nThe company is looking for franchise partners with the capability to invest in high traffic locations in major towns and cities in the UK.\r\n\r\nThe expansion will be supported by a full complement of expert brewers, architects, designers, marketing and operations team to help guarantee success.\r\n\r\nThere are three restaurant types, including Br\u00e4uhaus with its onsite micro-brewery, the Wirtshaus where the focus is on the menu matched with Paulaner beers, and the Bierhaus, the traditional Bavarian pub.\r\n\r\nLars Eckart, managing director, said: \u201cWe are convinced that we can achieve great success with our Paulaner breweries and pubs in the UK. The market is ready for us. Paulaner stands for outstanding beer culture, brewed in accordance with the German Purity Law.\r\n\r\n\u201cWe now want to bring this centuries-old craft of brewing closer to British beer lovers. Our aim is to ignite enthusiasm for genuine, traditional Bavarian beer in the UK, while ensuring the highest standards of quality. Alongside our exquisite beer offering, our Bavarian food will provide an authentic gastronomic experience.\u201d\r\n\r\nHans Neumaier, director business development, added: \u201cWe have been successful in the UK market for years with our excellent Munich beers.
