My friend discussed with me that he wants us to put up a mobile bar business. Well wala ako idea dito since di naman ako malakas uminom at araw-araw sa gimikan. Pero I'm an outgoing person pero mas madalas beer lang iniinom ko. Mas marami pa ako alam sa pagluluto kesa sa bartending.

Well the idea of the business is you will offer a package including service, a mobile bar setup, and cocktails. Upon research, looks like market is middle class, mostly on occasions like birthdays and weddings.

What do you think of this business, guys?

why would i want a mobile bar when i can just hire a bartender (which i've done previously) to serve and mix drinks?

I heard this business before...It's similar to mobile DJ mix party during the 80's but its a new concept of mobile bartender offering different alcohol, lager, wine, spirits etc...

More choices of mixes... from mocktails, to cocktails... shooters to flamers. You can also buy any type of mixes/ alcohol per shot. It's basically a package of everything, like what I said service, drinks and some offer add-ons like drinking games, etc. Less worries.

I'd like to try this. Can you share some upsides and downsides? :)

I suggest you do the math first like how much capital you'll need to start and how much you'll earn per event. If the numbers make sense, then go!

Exactly. That's what we're discussing right now. We talked to a friend who is in this kind of business. He said when he started with his mobile bar 2 years ago, it cost him 7000 for the construction of the bar alone. But that was a very simple mobile bar. But I think with the design that I want, it might cost us 15000. But of course there are other important items that need to be accounted like the cost of each mix, cost of manpower, cost of buying the materials needed, etc.

Don't you need a liquor license to serve hard drinks?

I think it will be profitable business because its a new concept of serving alcohol to the party people...You know what I mean..Right? It's like a Sari-Sari store cheaper to operate compared to a Convenience Store. Anyway go for it if the you will only spent 15k for this kind of business.

We may assume that it's profitable because it's a new concept. But sometimes it's not. That's why I suggest you do your homework first and get all the necessary information about mobile bar business. Example, you may want to connect with some mobile bar entrepreneurs in your town and ask them how business is. If possible, pwede kang magrequest ng kanilang income statement, balance sheet, etc. They might be kind enough to give it to you. :D

For mobile bars? I don't think so. I've talked to at least one owner of this kind of biz and no, he doesn't have license. But thanks for bringing that up. I would want to confirm that as well.

Thanks for the encouragement. Though 15k is not the only expense (for the mobile bar itself), we are still very positive about this. I'll post updates once we're able to meet and talk again. Also, hopefully this weekend tapos na yung sample designs ng mobile bar. :)

I definitely agree with you, and that's what exactly what we're doing. As a matter of fact, we met with one mobile biz owner and he's very kind enough to share how they do the mixing and other important stuff (he's my friend's colleague btw). I'm also checking out the competition on the net as I think social media is the major means of advertising and marketing.

The real deal here is the main man... the bartender and manpower. I think dito kame medyo magkaka-issue. But still we're very positive.

Also, my friend wants to launch this business by next month. I am convincing him that perfect timing is also key to a successful business. Sabi nya kasi walang patay na buwan dito. I disagree with him coz I think pag tag-ulan, wala masyadong events, but he thinks that's not true and he has a point. You can't change nga naman your birthday, and the events continuously happen. But let's see. Baka din sya ang makapag-convince sa akin. LOL. What do you think, guys? :D

I think his suggestion is true If we're talking about putting up mobile bars on wedding receptions. Because if you're in the wedding industry, mostly ang mga customers mo (i.e. wedding couples) ay hindi na rationale sa kanilang desisyon (lalong-lalo na sa budget nila). It's where you can see the equity of a person cut into half for a very short period of time. Ung iba nga nangungutang pa para maging bongga ang kanilang wedding. LOL!  :hihi:
