Wetherspoon was recognised for its contribution to a modern, dynamic and vibrant pub sector – by the Association of Licensed Multiple Retailers (ALMR).
The one-off awards were held to celebrate the association’s 20th anniversary. Wetherspoon won the Innovator Award, one of only two awards to be granted to companies, for its ‘continuous development and evolutionary approach to deliver what customers want’.
ALMR’s chief executive, Nick Bish, said: “These awards are peer nominated and reflect that respect and admiration within the industry for what Wetherspoon has achieved over the past 20 years.
“The company has never stood still, never rested on its laurels and always striven to be different within the marketplace.
“The award rewards that forward-thinking and the passion, commitment and standards which its staff deliver.”
