Tips for preparing your bar for the Euros Back to news
Preparing your bar for busy periods is key to delivering perfectly chilled drinks for your customers. Our CEO Serge Kremer has put together some simple tips on how you can make sure you are ready.
Serge said: “As ever with big sporting events, especially if you’re screening them in your pub, keeping on top of an increase in customer demand and having a continuous flow of chilled drinks available in your bar can be a challenge.''
1. Plan Extra Stock
“Before the tournament starts, plan out which fixtures are likely to generate more customers than others (usually England games or finals) and make sure you have extra stock on those days.
Remember to think about the types of drinks football fans tend to buy, which is most often beer, be prepared by stocking and chilling extra bottles is a good idea.''
“Make sure to invest in new products before the busy period. This will mean your staff have enough time to get used to any new products and to be briefed on how they work. Robust products like the Husky Back Bar range are an excellent choice, designed with re-enforced hinges and self-closing doors so staff can work efficiently and LED lighting and adjustable shelving to display drinks attractively, whilst chilling drinks to the optimum drinking temperature. Installing stylish new back bar fridges in good time will also improve the appearance of your bar, an additional factor to entice customers.''
3. Stock Rotation
“Re-stock fridges regularly so you can always offer beverages at the optimum drinking temperature on match days. It’s also a good idea to invest in back of house fridges to keep up with the increased demand for drinks.''
“Following these simple steps will ensure your bar runs steadily and efficiently during the Euros. The more you prepare, the more free time you’ll have to catch the odd game yourself!”
