Key Success Factors in Clubs
Successful clubs are welcoming; they create a sense of belonging for a shared purpose.
What is Success?
Success is commonly defined as "the accomplishment of an aim or purpose."
The dreaded price increase - what you need to consider
Most clubs will be aware that the excise tax on alcohol is inflation adjusted at this time of year in line with the CPI and that often suppliers increase their prices as a result of the increased excise tax. Earlier this year most of the breweries notified venues of price increases largely due to the hop shortage taking place, it would appear that this earlier price increase factored in the excise tax adjustment and no further increases are planned at this stage . However with the price increases earlier this year clubs need to look closely at their own bar pricing.
As bar sales are one of the largest revenue items in most clubs it is really important to get the pricing right without the need to make further adjustments throughout the year which leads to very dissatisfied members.
