Crowded bars leave patrons at a disadvantage when ordering drinks. It can feel impossible to call attention to the Bartender, plus specialty drinks only increase wait time. People across Reddit report waiting more than 45 minutes on a busy night for a cocktail.
Bartenders are often inundated by requests and feel rushed. Mistakes can be made and specialty, high-priced drinks are often turned away. Busy bars can actually push away up to 30% in annual losses.
The 2020 pandemic threatened many locally-owned restaurants and bars. National Restaurant Association estimates that the restaurant industry – to include bars – lost $80 billion through April 2020. Additionally, projected annual loss topped $240 billion. Being in a restaurants means being close to other people, which often conflicts with state and federal guidelines and has forced many businesses to close.
Bar owners have access to metrics to better understand their businesses and tools for improving operations. The concept is simple:
- A customer builds an order by creating or selecting drinks from a bar’s menu
- When the order is submitted, the customer’s phone glows a color (e.g.– the RED order)
- The bartender receives the RED order on his own mobile device and prepares the order
- The bartender then delivers the RED order to the customer whose mobile device is glowing red
