As a regional brewery founded in 1882 in Cardiff, S.A. Brain & Co Ltd has grown to control more than 200 pubs around Wales. Today it has developing into a modern bar and restaurant which caterers to numerous customers daily. In 2011 it diversified into the rapidly growing coffee market buying Cardiff-based coffee chain Coffee #1.
With card payments having overtaken cash payment for the first time in the UK last week, it is important that the merchant services a business uses, gives them the best plan to fit their needs. Bank Brokers were able to help and below Martin Reed, Finance Director, S.A. Brain & Co Ltd explains his delight in the results:
“We commissioned Bank Brokers to undertake a transaction banking price benchmark across both our brands, Brains and Coffee # 1. Having undertaken an in house review of our merchant services costs in June 2015 where we had already achieved cost savings, we were unsure as to the additional value Bank Brokers may be able to deliver. The incremental savings they identified and have successfully delivered will have a significant positive impact on our transaction banking cost base, well beyond our expectations. We are truly delighted with the results achieved. With further savings identified in other transactional areas, we look forward to strengthening and developing our business relationship. We thoroughly recommend their professional services.”
