WHY WE STARTED?

While visiting family in New York, our founder Sam noticed how many people were opening new bars and restaurants in the neighborhood he was staying. Often asked his opinion on how to start a bar or restaurant, he felt like there was a need for an effective, easy to use product that would save people tons of time and money while trying to make their dream of owning a bar a reality. Even though there's a ton of free information on the Internet, he couldn't find one place that had all the info I needed that I could recommend to anyone or even more importantly, that would effectively explain how to use it. So he decided to make one; effectively launching our first product, “The Barprint: Bar/Restaurant Business Plan”. Since then Barprints has evolved into not just the place you go to when you’re ready to open your own bar; but the place you go to for everything you’ll need to deliver an exceptional guest experience!
