AzbarAmerica has introduced the new Cocktail Tower which sutomatically pours up to 255 pre-programmed mixed drink recipes at the touch of a single button. The unit solves the age old problem of drink consistancy by pouring to the 1/100th of an ounce all the products needed for a mixed drink. The unit very easy to operate, often eliminating the need for skilled bartenders.
Originally designed for high volume venues such as casinos and large nightclubs, the unit has now found favor in much smaller locations such as bowling alleys and restaurant service bars. The owners of smaller locations have realized that the cost of the equipment is often less than the cost of paying an employee to work behind the bar at times when their establishment is not at full capacity.
Inventory control and product consistency have long been the downfall for many companies in the hospitality industry, with the bar area at times the the greatest loser. Since the revenues from a single the a single gallon of liquor can exceed $300.00, companies have realized that they do not want their profits going down the drain. Also, many investors are now utilizing todays technologies such as sophisticated inventory methods and energy efficient systems trying to increase their bottom line. This unit not only records each transaction into the cash register as it is being poured, it also removes the product from the locations inventory and calculates the profits automatically into a set of reports that also includes which employee poured the drink, and who it was served to.
With corporate liability now a big concern with many employers that serve liquor. This system help with accountability by tracking the beverages and controlling the portions within their guidelines. They do not have to worry about an employee pouring a customer triple shots and sending them out on the highways. This also protects the bartenders since many states now allow lawsuits to not only be filed against the business owner, but the employee as well.
The payback on the system is quite remarkable. Most locations report that the unit increased their revenues by at least 30%, while reducing their product cost by the same if not higher number. These number are quite staggering when you factor in the reduced management time associated with running most locations. Reports such as inventory are now done in minutes instead of hours, and the money spent on accounting fees or time spent by in-house bookeepers is reduced. Multiple unit or offsite owners enjoy the feature of being able to pull the reports from their home offices. Many operators report that training is now easier for them to fill the positions behind the bar because all of their special recipes are now pre-programmed into the unit.
