Increase Operational Efficiency
Self-pour technology allows your restaurant staff to focus on increasing efficiency. And, self-pour provides diners with complete freedom over their drinking experience. Guests can say goodbye to the days of flagging down their servers and waiting for their drinks to arrive. With this freedom, waiters and waitresses can serve food more efficiently and quickly to guests. They will not get distracted by repetitive drink orders, or worse, giving out free samples from the owner’s pocket.
Increased Speed of Service
This increase in operational efficiency also brings an increase in the speed of service. Since customers can approach the wall and pour whatever suits them, your staff can focus on serving dishes faster due to less juggling of drink and meal orders. This increased speed of service will allow waiters and waitresses to rotate through more customers throughout their shifts, thus increasing both customer flow and revenue.
Increased Beverage Sales
The sales from your self-pour system will be a new stream of revenue. It will also reduce the amount of beverage waste that is not accounted for when using a traditional system. The PourMyBeer system is a considerable way to generate sales for your pizzeria due to its unique selling point and extreme efficiency. Our system has proven to increase profits by 45% or more for our customers, giving them security and maximizing customer flows as well as overall beverage sales.

Ability to Sample
At a traditional bar, customers can usually get to sample a couple of beers for free (at the owner’s expense), but that is where the sampling fun ends. With PourMyBeer technology, customers can sample every single beverage from the self-serve wall in whichever quantity they want. This is a strong selling point in itself as customers love to discover and try new things. With self-serve technology, the guests don’t have to awkwardly ask for those free samples anymore. If customers want to taste something that’s on the beverage menu, they can go up to the wall and pour it themselves, this brings us to the final benefit…
