Beannchor Group has grown into Northern Ireland’s biggest hospitality group, with interests ranging from a chain of pizzeria to pubs and hotels.
The group, which was founded by Bill Wolsey, is behind the luxury Merchant Hotel in Belfast, as well as owning and running some of the city’s best-known pubs.
In addition, it also leases out a large number of bars to other operators. In recent years it has diversified into a chain of six family-friendly pizza restaurants, Little Wing.
Last year the company unveiled its latest property, the Bullitt Hotel in the city’s Church Lane.
Conall Wolsey, the son of founder Bill, has revealed plans to take the Bullitt hotel concept to Dublin.
His brother Luke is responsible for the Little Wing part of the business. Changes in a financing agreement with Goldman Sachs have increased profits in its latest results.
