When you own or manage a restaurant or a bar you will find some period of time where you need to make changes to continue growing your business. Typically restaurants owners and managers are looking at creating more awareness, making adjustments with staffing, menu, online reviews, or are ready to get a bar program, investors, add-on such as catering private events, etc.
How about starting or updating your Bar Program?
A successful Bar strategy begins with a solid Bar program that is continually adjusted to meet the demands of the San Francisco Bay Area Bar market. Bartender, Bar Manager, Bar Owner, Restaurant Owners, and Restaurant Managers need to have fresh approaches and continue to adjust their bar program to ensure their continuous growth.
What does having a Bar Program mean?
A Bar Program includes everything from updating you cocktail menu seasonally, to ordering (liquors, ingredients), managing inventories (making you sure you have what you need but don’t over buy), costing (are you paying the right prices for your liquor and ingredients?), and more. Designing a new menu with seasonal ingredients is fun for your customers and increase your customer loyalty, however, if not set-up the right way it can quickly become expensive.
How to set-up a Bar Program?
What are your competitors doing? Research your competitors and research what other bar are doing and get inspired by successful bar recipes. Make sure to review cost and develop a program with profit margins. Don’t go overboard, have a balanced menu and make sure you listen to your customers.
