The Bar Shift

The Bar Shift is 41 best practices for managing your bar and restaurant specifically targeting concepts and processes that will improve results and work-life. It’s designed to be specific and to the point; which is what our industry requires. The book also allows the reader to jump right to a topic that may be a burning need in the business at the moment without compromising any previous content.

The book is purpose-built for an industry that doesn’t have time for a lot of waste, especially time! The Bar Shift targets the Bar Manager as its audience understanding that that role may be played by anyone from an owner to a bartender. The book ensures there’s content that will satisfy the most seasoned and talented of those involved in the industry from managers, owners, consultants and distributors alike.

Your success is personal to us

Whether we are engaged in a 1:1 program, partnership coaching, or staff engagement, we believe a Coach has a simple yet critical role. A Coach must lift up the people they are engaged with so those people can achieve a level of success that may not have been otherwise discovered.  We believe strongly in the importance of having people available in our lives who afford us the space and knowledge to grow personally and professionally.  We write about this in our books and we live it here at Dave & Dave.

This is why we decided on a business name that simply states exactly who we are… Dave and Dave.  We are very intentional about distinguishing ourselves as coaches versus consultants and there is a reason.

Over the years, our experience is that the vast majority of consulting firms’ objectives are focused on themselves.

Their primary operating parameters are to be “sticky”. They need to extract as much time and money as possible from a client.

We are the exact opposite.

  • We create our own exit strategy from the outset.
  • We operate from your specific guidance on your desired outcomes, the timeline for completion, and your specific budget parameters.
  • We are driven to deliver what you need so that you no longer need us; we believe that this is the only right way to help people.
  • We strive to deliver award-winning management concepts to bar and restaurant owners across the globe in an affordable fashion.
