Early Stages of Bar-i: Getting the Company off the Ground
Scott Douthitt and Jamie Edwards started Bar-i in May of 2009, and the company has been growing steadily ever since. Scott has more than 20 years of experience in the industry, including over a decade of experience running the Red Lion, one of the busiest restaurants in Vail, Colorado. Jamie has a corporate finance background and had previously worked for the management consulting firm Oliver Wyman. These two skillsets proved to be the perfect combination to launch Bar-i into a successful liquor inventory start-up providing liquor inventory services to bars and restaurants.
When they started the company, Scott and Jamie spent thousands of dollars purchasing third party liquor inventory software programs which they ultimately found were not very practical, effective, or user friendly. After testing out numerous products, they decided it would be best if they developed their own liquor inventory system.
Bar-i designed a new software system to perform liquor inventory audits. We have refined the software many times to streamline the process and provide a product that has a strong focus on ease of use. By becoming a Bar-i franchisee, you benefit from the ability to use a tried-and-true system that has a proven track record of success. This will help you avoid years of trial and error and save thousands of dollars in research and development costs. In addition this opportunity is available at a literally half the cost of what is offered by our larger competitor Bevintel/ Sculpture Hospitality.
Bar-i is providing a franchise opportunity by franchising our brand and software to aspiring liquor inventory business owners. In addition to providing our proprietary software to you, we will also teach you how to use it. Franchisees will receive the following benefits:
- Exclusive rights to a geographic territory (literally twice the size of territories offered by Bevintel/ Sculpture Hospitality.
- Use of Bar-i’s branding, marketing, sales, and training materials
- A mentoring process involving help, training, and support from the people who created the system
This will provide you with all the tools necessary for success, allowing you to focus on building a client base.
Our Franchise Philosophy
At Bar-i we are conscious of the constraints caused by lack of start-up capital. Therefore, our goal is to keep your initial costs as reasonable as possible in order to make the opportunity more widely available. Our Franchise Fee will be $20,000 including rights your exclusive territory of ~500 on-premise licensed establishments and full training and support. This compares favorably with Bevintel/ Sculpture Hospitality’s franchise opportunity which costs literally twice the amount and is considerably more restrictive of an arrangement.
In addition, our franchisees will benefit from innovative training strategies made possible by modern technology. Part of your training will be conducted through one-on-one coaching sessions over the Internet, allowing you to:
- Expedite the launching of your liquor inventory franchise
- Save money on training cost for your new liquor inventory franchise
- Maintain a closer relationship with your mentors due to more frequent interactions
Bar-i has grown to service clients in 7 States from coast to coast. While we can’t guarantee this kind of success in your franchise venture, you will benefit from having much of the leg work done for you, which should allow you to grow a client base even more rapidly. Our goal is to make it possible for you to make more money than you are currently earning managing a restaurant within the first 2 years of owning a Bar-i franchise.
