An efficient and well-managed bar leads to a profitable restaurant. Our customized bar consulting services include bar evaluations, equipment assessments, training and recruiting, inventory management, loss prevention and accountability, menu development, and distributor price management.
The first step to improving the efficiency and profitability of a bar is an experienced, objective evaluation of current equipment, systems, pricing, product selection, and policies. Our knowledgeable consulting team of bar and management veterans can provide your restaurant with a report of incremental adjustments that can show immediate results and lead to long-term growth.
Many restaurants acquire their space and equipment from previous tenants and concepts. Often, the old equipment may not be best suited to accommodate a new concept. Sometimes a simple layout reorganization of current equipment can optimize the bar’s performance. Goliath Consulting Group can help match your equipment needs to reliable and quality vendors, including acquiring equipment maintenance contracts, installation, and unit recommendations.
Training and Recruiting
Training management and hourly staff is a core focus of Goliath Consulting Group. Our team works with restaurant management and includes budget-focused ordering, inventory controls, and staff training. From dives to craft bars, we can develop your team into a cohesive, consistent unit ready to execute your restaurant’s vision. Our training programs include guest relations, bar skills to lead to consistent, high-quality drinks, alcohol awareness and safety. Goliath Consulting has the tools to recruit hourly and management candidates and can help you find that perfect bartender, barback, or bar manager.
Inventory Management/Loss Prevention
Proper inventory management is the foundation for accurate ordering, loss prevention, and profitability. Developing efficient counting systems encourages management to take a weekly inventory and monitor product variance. Determining the right inventory platform (whether it is a third-party tech-based solution or an in-house spreadsheet solution) can yield immediate and large returns for your restaurant and bar. Goliath develops customized solutions to reduce product loss via theft, overpouring, and unaccounted sales.
Menu Development/Vendor Relations
Updating and developing bar menus involves tuning in to current trends, guest demographics and leveraging vendors to provide cost-effective items. Goliath’s vendor network includes both distributor and supplier executives, ensuring your bar is stocked with high-appeal, high-demand products at the best available pricing. Our supplier network will assist your brand with outside marketing, pos materials, and staff training. Whether you are looking for a trendy, craft-based bar program with craft cocktails or a value-based neighborhood concept, our experienced team will compile proposals to bring the results you want.
