    Bar Opening and Closing Checklists


    In order to get consistent results from your staff, it's essential to have your employees all pulling in the same direction using the same standards and operating knowledge.




    Use the opening and closing checklists to give your staff specific instructions on what needs to be done during opening and closing so that your operation is run in a consistent and efficient manner.

    Using checklists puts staff members on the same page as to what their responsibilities are and makes the management of your bar run much smoother.

    Our opening and closing checklists are complete and ready to use immediately. You can also use it as a template and customize it as you see fit for your bar's operations.
