The Brass Tap - Craft Beer & Wine Bar

Franchise

In 2007, three business partners and friends from the restaurant world created a vision for the “ultimate Beer Bar”. They recognized the explosive growth in the craft beer market and began creating The Brass Tap. In October 2008, The Brass Tap’s first location opened in the Shops at Wiregrass in Wesley Chapel, Florida and was soon followed by a second location in Brandon, Florida in October 2010. Today we offer hundreds of craft beers, known and exotic brands covering a variety of tastes and styles ensuring that there is an ideal beer for any taste. Add in live music, the combination has made The Brass Tap the premier local neighborhood destination. The Brass Tap is one of the fastest growing upscale beer and wine bars in the country.

Crafting a robust franchise

If you want to be a part of the “Ultimate Beer Bar”, dedicated to treating people right and creating a unique experience every time, own a franchise and make The Brass Tap your neighborhood h place. Here are the ingredients that make up our great franchise opportunity:
  • Low Cost: The Brass Tap does not have a kitchen, but offers patrons other options and food from area restaurants, resulting in a much simpler operation for The Brass Tap franchisees with lower startup costs and lower recurring expenses, while still meeting the demand from guests for good food. We require less staff, training and management with fewer personnel issues. Labor at The Brass Tap is almost half of what is required for a typical restaurant, which means higher profits for the franchisee.

  • Limited Competition: Today's consumers are looking for innovative alternatives to traditional bars and clubs. The Brass Tap stands out with its casual yet energetic environment that provides a wide selection of craft beers as well as live entertainment.

  • Training and Support: The Brass Tap provides an extensive training and support program to help you every step of the way. It starts with 5 weeks of training, 2 weeks at our corporate training center - 3 weeks in our designated training location, for your general manager and assistant manager. This initial training occurs 30-60 days prior to your restaurant opening and teaches your key management staff what they need to run your bar. When your bar opens we also provide a trainer to assist you at your location for the first week. Training continues with your personal Franchise Business Advisor who works with you step by step on an ongoing basis.

The estimated initial investment is from $ $324,100 - $660,000. This includes a $35,000 franchise fee as well as the bar furnishings and equipment, audio/visual package, location build out, inventory, point of sale system, grand opening marketing, three months’ rent, permits and working capital to open your business.

We love bringing people together and creating memories - good times with good people and great beer! If this sounds like you, fill out the form to get more information.
