Who We Are

Welcome! Looking for a Stocktaking Service? First of all, Let’s get one thing straight… people love to socialize! If, people just wanted to drink… they’d drink at home. There is nothing better than having a great night out with the ones we love, in a great establishment! So much so we’re willing to suffer the next day because of it!

Happier bars make happier customers which produce happier profits. This is where our advanced Liquor Stocktaking Software, Scales and Scanner comes into place.

Instead, we’re here to work with you, so that together we can work on maximising your potential sales, help tighten up your daily operations, enhance your teams KPI’s, and overall, increase your profits because, at BarPlus Consultants, we understand that it’s the small things that add up to the big profits and our Stocktaking Software ensures that.

What We Do

Running a successful bar can be extremely hard work, and, without having the right systems in place, you can find yourself working in your business as opposed to on your business.

We believe in helping bars and restaurants identify and improve key areas within their business. This varies from having the correct margins set on your wet and dry products, to pricing your drinks menu correctly, and most important of all, providing your customers with quality and consistency every time they step into your business.

Serving great drinks and having the right location is only a small part of the intricate world of Hospitality; it is understanding your business, having a great team, serving every drink with speed and efficency, and implementing the right metrics that will ensure high quality traffic and sales.

Whiskey Ginger Borough Market - London Bridge

“We have saved tens of thousands of pounds each year by working with BarPlus Consultants”

We first started working with BarPlus Consultants not really knowing the issues that existed in our business. BarPlus Consultants worked with us to implement strategies to help track our liquor inventory and overall reduce our liquor losses by tens of thousands of pounds.

Their outsourced Stocktaking service has allowed for more cash flow, which we have been able to inject into renovating our premises and therefore enhancing the customers experience at Whiskey Ginger.

The information that BarPlus Consultants have made available to us has given us a true insight into how we build our brand for the foreseeable future and their reports have proven to be invaluable. We look forward to working with BarPlus Consultants for the foreseeable future.

I would highly recommend BarPlus Consultants to all bars and restaurants.
