Listen below to The Wharton Business School Innovation Navigation's David Robertson interviewing Donal Ballance about the Irish Pub Concept in October 2016 and again in February 2017.
Guinness Stout has been around since 1729 and currently lives under the proud banner of Diageo, the world's largest manufacturer of alcoholic beverages. Being Irish in origin and having been around for over 250 years gives Guinness© a certain insight into the world of pubs, and in 1989 they announced their leadership by forming the Guinness© Irish Pub Concept.
The Irish Pub Concept is no longer operated by Guinness© but is still the global standard for truly great, authentic pubs. The Diageo Beer Company (which owns Guinness©) has been and remains an enthusiastic supporter of the concept and is proud of its part in the development of this robust casual-dining business model.
For the past 25 years, Ballance Hospitality have provided advice and direction to people who are thinking about developing an authentic Irish Pub. We help you put structure around your thoughts and identify how your great idea can be translated into reality.
