We’re Here to Help You Raise the Bar at Your Bar!
Owning a bar is hard work, but for most people, it’s a labor of love. There’s nothing like developing a base of repeat customers, and giving them a comfortable place to let their hair down. But how do you keep them coming back? There’s no one-size fits all approach to sustained success in the bar business, and there are many factors that are out of your control. But most successful bar owners will tell you to focus on the things that you can control, such as cleanliness, tasty drinks, and great customer service.
Don’s Supply has been Arkansas’ top provider of restaurant and bar equipment supply since 1969, and we’re a phone call away when you need premium bar supplies and equipment. But we’re more than just a restaurant and bar supply wholesaler: we also offer top quality advice at no additional charge! No two bars are quite the same, but the most successful ones tend to do many of the same things. Here are a few easy ways to set yourself up for success:
Operate a spotlessly clean establishment-All restaurants and bars have to be in compliance with health and safety standards, which is a responsibility that should be taken seriously by all staff members. No one’s too important to pick up a rag or a mop, and there’s always something to be cleaned.
Keep all equipment properly serviced-Preventative maintenance is one of the most important ways to prolong the life of your equipment, and you should always follow the manufacturer’s service recommendations.
Look for ways to improve efficiency-Is there a better way to lay out your bar’s workstations to expedite drink production? Your employees will likely have some suggestions, which are usually quick and inexpensive to implement.
Be a creative problem solver-In the bar business, you can often expect the unexpected. Do you have a plan for an unexpected rush of guests, equipment breakdowns, and natural disasters? You may not be able to imagine every single scenario, but the quicker that you can respond, the better off that you, your staff, and your guests will be!
