Slice Pizza, a fast-casual pizzeria in Laguna Beach, California, installed an 18-tap system powered and supported by iPourIt in 2017.
iPourIt has designed and developed a technology solution for operators to overcome common fast-casual obstacles, such as keg yield, labor costs, tapping into the millennial market, and more.
Owner of Slice Pizza Cary Redfearn said, “At Slice Pizza, we have a higher percentage of alcohol to food sales and sell a higher percentage of beer and wine than any of our local competitors with a similar concept. With iPourIt, we save costly space and reduce our overhead costs from that of a traditional bar.”
Since 2012, iPourIt collects extensive data for their operators and to gain valuable market knowledge. The data collected includes products poured, amount poured, inventory, patron demographics, and more. Operators can use this data to optimize operations and product and pricing strategies.
iPourIt’s data shows Slice Pizza pours over 18,892 ounces per month, generating 15% of alcohol to food sales compared to the industry average of 4-6%. Within two months, Cary received a return on his investment. iPourIt and the self-pour concept allow Slice Pizza to get the most out of selling alcohol with minimal additional costs, such as labor and real estate.
