Taffer Turns Around Kerry'sOctober 20, 2013 By: Kristen Santoro
Las Vegas boasts more than 200 sports bars that generate more than $200 million a year. Kerry’s Sports Bar in North Las Vegas fails to capture any of that money and is on the verge of being knocked down. Hoping to make it a family business, retired business man Bill David bought Kerry’s Sports Bar and hired his daughter Kim and grandchildren Justin and Lacey to run the bar.
But those dreams were quickly shattered when Bill suffered a stroke in 2011. The family business that was supposed to be passed down for generations began to unravel. The main problem - there is no accounting structure. The staff is co-mingling the cash with tips allowing employees to easily steal money from the business.
Kim finally takes a stand and fires two bartenders allowing the business to move forward. Experts Phil Wills and Brendan Collins get to work training the staff while Taffer and his team work on a new concept. Taffer also teaches Kim how to do a cash check in the middle of a shift and hold her employees accountable for their actions.
After five days of bloody, sweat and tears from Justin, Lacey and Kim, Taffer reveals The Bacon Bar. Sales at the Bacon Bar have increased 35% and Justin and Lacey no longer co-mingle their tips with the register. Now, this business can bring home the bacon.
