Adopting an out-of-house property director focus, we overlay our UK-wide market knowledge with your business needs. We report directly at board level with both a strategic long- and short-term perspective as well as resolving and reporting on immediate issues.
We no longer create a distinction between lease advisory and acquisition/disposal roles. We blend our teams to ensure we’re leveraging our clients' position by forming a holistic strategy based on technical and market knowledge. Reducing occupational costs, building flexibility and ensuring every property is in the best possible location, not just now, but in the longer term.
Both private equity and business recovery professionals value our location and occupier knowledge when reviewing existing occupiers. We are highly skilled at providing board-level repositioning advice, business plan creation and disposal strategies to create healthy consumer-focused businesses.
"Over the years GCW have helped KFC and their franchise partners build their varied and flexible restaurant portfolio. This has covered acquisitions across out of town, edge of town, roadside and town centre locations, from the smaller in town formats to traditional drive thru restaurants. Their market knowledge and boots on the ground approach has proved invaluable to us, given our desire to grow the brand."
Paul Stokes, Head of Franchise Development
"O2 appointed GCW because the people who pitched are the people who will do the job. That team sit and work closely together and they will get out and see the stores which they are involved with. I am confident that they will provide best in class advice and achieve savings across our portfolio. Since I started working with GCW, they have already achieved a number of positive outcomes."
