Why do I need a liquor control system?

For the same reason you put in security cameras and door locks. The best way to stop a crime is to the prevent it, and theft is the single biggest cause of high liquor costs.

How much do staff steal?

Some statistics state bartender theft at $500+ per day – that’s right ~ PER DAY!!

How do they steal?

The list of ways that bartenders steal is long:

· Overpour – intentional or otherwise
· Short Pouring – spreads a pour over two or more drinks and sells the extra for cash
· Counting ounces
· Over pouring liquor and topping up bottles with water
· Adjusting customer check
· Swapping cheaper product for higher priced liquor
· Blatant give away

How do I catch them?

Once the theft is committed you are faced with:

· Liquour inventory counts
· Camera angles
· POS spot checks
· POS reports

OR You can stop the theft before it happens!

How do I calculate my theoretic liquor cost?

Dollars spent buying liquor for a certain period, divided by the amount of money you SHOULD have received by selling that liquor….equals the theoretic liquor cost expressed as a percentage.

  • $100,000 spent buying liquor
    divided by
  • $800,000 planned revenues from the sale of liquor
  • 12.5% theoretical liquor cost
How do I calculate my actual liquor cost?

Dollars spent buying liquor for a certain period, divided by the amount of money you ACTUALLY received by selling that liquor….equals the actual liquor cost expressed as a percentage.

  • $100,000 spent buying liquor
    divided by
  • $532,552 actual revenues from the sale of liquor sold
  • 18.8% actual liquor cost
What does the difference mean?

The difference between your theoretical and actual liquor costs is the amount of money you are not making in your liquor sales:

Planned Liquor Sales = $800,000
Actual Liquor Sales = $532,552
The Additional Sales you COULD have made = $267,448

This is as a result of all the factors that AndroBar can control such as…

– overpour
– waste through incorrect drink recipes
– lack of data to manage your liquor theft
– unrecorded sales

What do you mean by overpour? My bartenders always pour correctly.

In test after test, pouring thousands of ounces of liquor our research has shown the following:

  • Free Pour (where the bartender uses a count to calculate amount poured) overpour averages 31.6% (pour accuracy = 0%)
  • Measured Pour (Jigger or shot glass used to measure) overpour averages 28%
  • Electronic portion control (AndroBar for example) overpour averages <2%
What is your dollar yield per bottle?

Theoretical Yield per bottle is the size of the bottle in oz. (750ml = 25.3 oz, 1 litre = 33.8) divided by the size of your standard sized drink pour. To add to the calculation – times the number of drinks by the retail price to get your Dollar Yield per bottle.

  • 750 ml bottle = 25.3 oz
  • Standard pour = 1.5oz
  • Yield per Bottle = 16 drinks
    times $9.00 per drink
  • Potential Dollar Yield per bottle = $144 per bottle
