Liquor Inventory: How Much Over-Pouring is ACTUALLY Costing Your Bar

Why do bar owners ignore and neglect their business? It’s like when a child is being tormented and pummeled by a school-yard bully and instead of taking the necessary steps to stop it and rectify the situation, the parents just sort of shrug and say, “You know how it is, boys will be boys.” 

No, that’s not how it is at all. Action needs to be taken or real damage is going to be done.

I understand that taking your bar and liquor inventory is a tedious process, and that sometimes you might think, “Is it really worth the hassle when I have so much going on?”

When you see the stats I’m about to give you from bartenders over-pouring just 1/2 oz., you are going to be blown away by how much damage and losses are actually occurring in your business, and at that point you’ll probably want to reconsider if it’s worth it or not to keep a closer eye on your liquor inventory.

So get ready to nerd-out with some stats as I demonstrate exactly how much ACTUAL money you’re losing by not tracking what’s going on behind the bar.

Cheers, until next time,
