What do you think ?
Perhaps that's for the bartender, who needs to be there and couldn't really be freelance ?
The other aspect is what upselling can be done ? e.g. Higher margins on premium beer. Bar snacks. Anything else WITH A LONG SHELF LIFE.
Also, if he later wants to expand and move to better premises within the complex, is it another 30,000 ? Or can that be transferred ? I would want to know the answer.
Give any boy who follows the dress code 70 baht per boy drink.
The additional staff line in the proposed budget is for 10.000 baht is for the bartender who needs to always be there. Also, the prospective new owner wants 1 day off per week so the bartender would need to backstop him.
So Jun, what would be the revised break even point considering the need to pay the bartender a salary ?
For upselling - we thought of the following ideas:
- to have a fixed popcorn machine on site where the first cup of popcorn is free then additional refills can be had for a nominal fee - 20 baht ?
if the popcorn is salty enough that creates $thirst$ :>))
- the current owner told the new prospective owner that many customers ask for coffee/tea - so this could be another upsell item
To draw people in we thought of maybe having a movie night 1 or 2 times a night. The space could accommodate a small movie screen. Do you think that this could draw customers in?
When I lived in Rome, Italy - two of the gay bars there had movie night where they would show a gay film - artistic, drama, action, etc. They would do a little short talk about the film, director, actors, etc. When the annual gay film festival was in town then they would show films all week and often the local gay directors and/or actors would make an appearance and speak to the audience.
Other ideas were for a mini-golf, dart board, etc.
can you think of other things that could draw the customers in ?
of course naked guys dancing around a pole is prohibited in Supertown - especially in one of these pop-up small outside bars.
The 30.000 damage security deposit held with the Jomtien Complex office is refundable (assuming no damage has occurred to the rented premises
). Also, it can be transferred as part of the sale deal from one bar to another if the current owner who is due the 30.000 signs off to relinquish it to the new owner.
Jun, you wrote, "Give any boy who follows the dress code 70 baht per boy drink.
This is an EXCELLENT idea and gives the guys some financial incentives to perform to entertain the client base....
I would argue that if the guest bar guys can get enough customers into the bar and there is an excess profit - that some of this excess profit should be shared with the guys each month - like what we would do in the USA = Profit Sharing ....
