You might not know it but you've probably already enjoyed a drink in a FullerThomson pub.
Over the last ten years the local brand has been slowly leaving its mark on the pub scenes in Dundee and Edinburgh.
A chain in name only, the independent company favours a unique approach to setting up shop and each of its seven pubs has its own entity.
"Our bars are like siblings in a family, each with their own different quirks and characteristics," says co-owner Gary Thomson.
"It's easy to find your favourite."
It seems Gary's not wrong, as the company is a finalist in both the Award for Success and the New Bar of the Year categories at the Scottish Bar and Pub Awards.
The winners will be announced on Tuesday night at a glittering ceremony in Glasgow.
With up to 30 different beers on offer, Duke's Corner enjoys a strong following in Dundee
Co-owners and managers Gordon Fuller and Gary Thomson started the company in Dundee in 2005 with just one pub, Drouthy's.
Today they're still based here but they've got a further six pubs to their name including Duke’s Corner and Jute Cafe at DCA in Dundee, and Edinburgh's Red Squirrel, The Southern, The Holyrood 9a and OX184.
It is the OX184 that is up for the New Bar of the Year gong at the Scottish Bar and Pub Awards.
Early advocates of the Scottish craft brewing movement and the gourmet burger, the company works with independent suppliers to ensure each bar has its own identity
And, employing 170 staff across its seven bars, it manages to generate an annual turnover of more than £7m.
It all started in Dundee
"As Dundee’s hospitality and tourism sector grows, we like to think [we have] contributed to the thriving independent bar and pub scene in Dundee," said Gary Thomson.
"We work closely with Dundee College, training young people to work in the hospitality sector and have never felt so excited about the opportunities ahead in the city.
"It seems fitting that ten years on, FullerThomson is being recognised by our customers and the licensed trade industry as a business associated with success.”

The Dundee brand is the second local institution to be nominated for a prize at the Scottish Bar and Pub awards, which takes place on Tuesday.
Last month it was announced that Broughty Ferry's Fort Bar was up for the Independent Bar of the Year award at the 20th annual event.
And, Clarks on Lindsay Street is also a finalist in two different categories, the Tennents Quality Award and the Diageo Social Responsibility Award.
The winning pubs will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony organised by industry publication The DRAM.
Event organiser and DRAM publisher Susan Young said: "The Scottish licensed trade never ceases to amaze me.
"Just when I think the standard of entry can't be topped, I'm blown away yet again by how licensees get behind these awards year after year."
