03 Feb Why Bar Training is Critical for Success: The Importance at Voodoo Bayou
For restaurant and bar owners, providing exceptional customer service is key to success. One of the most important aspects of ensuring great service is providing bar staff with training. Not only the beginning and basics of bartending and service,e but training that takes that service above and beyond! At Voodoo Bayou, bar training is considered the utmost critical component of success and is taken very seriously.
The importance of bar training starts with safety. Bartenders must be familiar with safe pouring techniques, alcohol percentages, and the correct handling of sharp objects and hot liquids. Providing staff with proper training helps to minimize the risk of accidents and ensures the safety of both employees and customers. On top of the basic safety training, we include training that provides customer service beyond belief. Bartenders are properly trained to be more confident and knowledgeable to be better equipped when handling customer requests and questions. This, in turn, leads to a more positive experience for customers and a better overall reputation for the restaurant.
At Voodoo Bayou, bar training requires education on all of the menu and drink offerings. This means learning about the ingredients of each and every dish, proper mixing techniques for all of the cocktails on the menu, and every little detail that goes into creating the best presentation for the guest’s meal. Proper training can make all the difference in the quality of a drink and the customer’s experience.
Bar training also includes understanding and following food and beverage regulations. These regulations are put in place to ensure the safety of customers and to maintain the integrity of the restaurant industry. By providing staff with the necessary training, Voodoo Bayou ensures that they are in compliance with all regulations and that they are providing customers with safe, high-quality drinks.
Finally, bar training is important for building staff morale and improving staff retention. We want you to enjoy the work you do, and working with us at Voodoo Bayou!
