The North East based pub-management brand has been purchased by former MD, Daren Knipe.

In a strategic move to preserve the successful Blackrose brand, former Blackrose Management Ltd Managing Director, Daren Knipe, has successfully acquired the company name and goodwill following its recent insolvency by its former owners.

This acquisition marks a significant turning point for Blackrose, allowing it to trade independently and charting a new course beyond its former structure.

“I am thrilled to announce the acquisition of the Blackrose name and the opportunity to lead the previously successful brand into a new era,” said Daren.

“Under the new structure, Blackrose will operate as an independent entity, having already successfully secured the continuation of previous management contracts, we are now also thrilled to be able to take on new clients within the private investment sector and hospitality industry.

“This move ensures that we can adopt a more agile approach whilst placing greater emphasis on our clients and their investments. We will also continue to develop our pledge towards complete transparency and honest relationships with our new and existing partners alike.”

The acquisition also comes with a commitment to invest in new and exciting roles and support for his new workforce. Daren has emphasised the importance of the team, stating, “Our amazing people are the backbone of Blackrose, and we are committed to developing an already positive and collaborative work environment as we move forward in our new venture.”

Customers and stakeholders can expect a seamless transition into the new structure, with the business launching its new web pages to invite inquiries from prospective clients in the coming days via blackrosepubs.com/solutions.
