Help Has Arrived!
Our training seminars teach staff:
These seminars run from 2 - 4 hours for managers, bartenders,
barbacks, waitresses, busboys and other staff. We will also
teach you how to train future employees and the basics of
customer service and hospitality. This important information
will assure you greater profits and contribute to the longevity
of your business.
Additionally, we offer services to establish simple inventory
control and sales promotions. We will also perform
confidential employee evaluations.
We offer independent bar & restaurant owners and managers affordable assistance with the opening of their
new establishments. Additionally, we provide solutions to problems for those who have already opened the doors
for business. One of the biggest mistakes bar owners make is thinking that they know the bar business when they
have never worked as a bartender (the hub of all sales) or have never even worked in a bar. Another common
regret is in spending hundreds of thousands of dollars without hiring a consultant for guidance. This nominal
investment is crucial in avoiding costly mistakes.
Many inexperienced bar owners and managers are also unaware of the value of qualified staff. Success in the
bar business is not only about beautiful decor, but also relies on smiling faces and excellent service. The
intangibles, like bar consultants and trained staff are the most important factors in a successful establishment.
Neglect of these vital aspects often results in failure. Trusting the limited knowledge of frequent bar patrons for
information is also an unwise decision. Bar patrons are not experts on functions of the bar business.
Additionally, simply relying on celebrities to bring in the numbers will also assure ultimate failure, if the business
is not managed properly. That's why celebrity-filled nightclubs do not last when treated as a party, rather than a
Ultimately, ego is the biggest reason for failure. We do not cater to egos, we create effective operations. If you
are serious, we are here to help, but if you just want your ego stroked, please don't call us. As a service to the

Beverage Industry vs.
The beverage industry and the
restaurant business are very
different entities. Many
managers confuse the two,
forgetting that the first
objective is to know what the
customers want. Though a
restaurant may have a
successful bar, there are still
different approaches to
marketing and managing the
establishment. That's where
many hospitality programs are
lacking, as they concentrate
on the restaurant aspect, but
they have no idea how to
manage and promote a bar.
Guests come to eat.
They may have a cocktail, a
beer or a glass of wine.
Guests come to meet.
They have a cocktail or 2,
or 3 or even 9.
