Cocktails are the backbone of any bar, and especially one in a restaurant. Profit margins and revenue can be volatile in the restaurant and bar industry, so you need something you can depend on to bring in good money. When your cocktails are done properly, they can be just that. When your drinks are made well and used in creative ways in your business, you will see your profit margins grow.
Word of mouth of a good drink can go a long way. Before the time of social media, it was how bars relied on customer loyalty. Even more so than being the place known for stiff drinks, being the place people know as having the best tasting drinks in town will create a buzz. Social media provides an added bonus as well, as customers can get the visual component to your drinks before they decide to come spend their hard earned money in your business. If your drinks are well-made, they’ll look pretty too. Using the look of your drinks and making sure they’re fun, unique, and creative can help your cocktail brand grow, and give you an expanded social media presence.
Making sure drinks are made well can be a challenge for some bars though, as inexperienced bartenders or new bartenders unfamiliar with your menu can face a bit of a learning curve. That’s where the BarMinder system can help. Centered on a wireless liquor pour spout, The BarMinder System tracks every bottle from when it enters the establishment until it goes into the trash. By combining data from the spouts about every drop being poured with real-time counts of every bottle in storage, BarMinder lets you never have to count another bottle of liquor. Ever. Just slap a sticker to the neck of the bottle, check it into the system and your complete inventory and usage is provided to you on the hub in your location or anywhere in the world on your phone.
No more incorrect counts, no more hours wasted on counting bottles. You and your staff can focus on caring for customers and BarMinder will let you know when there’s something that can be done to make more money. Reduce shrinkage, reduce overhead and make more money with BarMinder.
