About Buzzworks Holdings

Established in 1978, Buzzworks Holdings are a hospitality group with an award-winning portfolio of bars and restaurants across Ayrshire, Scotland.

Buzzworks’ core aim hasn’t changed since they opened their first venue - to make people feel great through exceptional hospitality, making visitors return to the company’s venues time and time again.

The company aims to be a world class hospitality business with more than £20 million revenue by 2020, and be the Best Place to Work In Hospitality in the UK. Buzzworks Holdings are already well on track to achieve the £20 million revenue target before 2020.

The business builds a culture around their core values that include Growing Forward Together, Flair with Care and Value every Voice.

Managing Director Kenny Blair has more than 30 years of experience in the hospitality and licensed trade and has recently overseen the business’s expansion into East Renfrewshire.
