Stop Pouring Away Your Profits!

Nov 20, 2012 8:43:04 AM

How much money is your bar leaving on the table? For the bar owner, over pouring of liquor with a free flow pour can result in a huge loss in revenue. Today we are going to discuss one low cost change that you can make which has the potential to increase consistency and profit; that change is adding measured pours. Let’s quickly review the numbers pouring from a measured 1 oz shot out of a one liter bottle:

Drink Price

2 More Drinks
Per Bottle
2 More Drinks
Per Case

3 More Drinks
Per Bottle

3 More Drinks
Per Case
$2.50 $5.00 $60.00 $7.50 $90.00
$3.00 $6.00 $72.00 $9.00 $108.00
$3.50 $7.00 $84.00 $10.50 $126.00
$4.00 $8.00 $96.00 $12.00 $144.00
$4.50 $9.00 $108.00 $13.50 $162.00
$5.00 $10.00 $120.00 $15.00 $180.00

When you reduce over pouring with a measured spout you can increase the number of drinks the bartender can serve by an additional two to four drinks per bottle. Considering the average number of liquor bottles in a bar, the impact using a measured pour spout will have on long term profitability is easy to see.

In addition to the revenue increase, you are increasing the quality of your customer service by ensuring that each customer is treated equally and consistently on every drink. The drinks won’t be too weak one night and too strong from one to the next. This will hold true on busy nights when the staff can’t pay as close of attention as they normally do or on the first night of a new bartender.

You can find measured pours here at Serv-U in the bar supplies section and are available in a wide range of measurement sizes, colors, and collared & uncollared. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact us via phone at 800-797-3788 or click the picture of the customer service representative at the top left corner of each page of the site to launch a live chat.
