You know Jon Taffer from the long running reality series Bar Rescue, so when he lays out the 7 Warning Signs that a bar is trash and not worth your time or money, you should probably listen.
Taffer has nearly 40 years experience in the hospitality, entertainment and nightlife industries. Of course he is best known as executive producer and star of Paramount Network’s Bar Rescue a show that spotlights Jon as he saves failing bars from their looming closure (now in it’s eighth season).
Taffer follows his own advice too
He owns three restaurants or “Taffer’s Taverns”. one right here in Massachusetts in Watertown, another in Atlanta and the other in Las Vegas.
So far, he has rescued over 200 bars across the United States. While over 100 of them have remained afloat, 99 have shut their doors. That is an average success rate of 50%, which may not sound great, you have to consider that almost all of them would have certainly close had Jon not come to the rescue to keep them open and give them a fighting chance to succeed.
What happens after he leaves is entirely up to the bar. Do they continue to heed his advice or do they go back to their old ways and end up shuttering their saloon doors? The ones that do succeed fully embrace Jon’s advice and changes and continue to thrive.
