A bar is a bar, but a tavern has soul.
Jon Taffer, ‘Bar Rescue’ star and award-winning hospitality expert, has launched his own innovative Full Service Restaurant concept, Taffer’s Tavern, and it has already caught the attention of experienced restaurant and bar franchisees across the nation and around the world.
Jon knows a tavern is a key place where people gather to eat, drink and share stories that date back to the times of ancient Rome. Taverns are known as a gathering place and a landmark that are a beacon of camaraderie for their communities. And Taffer’s Tavern is the quintessential pub, a place to gather with your old friends and make new ones along the way. With the ice-cold beers, outstanding signature cocktails, and mouth-watering savory food, it will keep customers coming back week after week.
Franchise investors are always searching for “the next big thing”, and Taffer’s Tavern offers all the ingredients for success; celebrity owned concept, best-in-class beverage program, the most interesting and delicious bar fare, a streamlined hoodless/ventless restaurant format with small footprint, and the latest advancements in food preparation technology that offers more volume in smaller spaces and the need for far fewer employees than traditional casual dining restaurants.
Taffer’s Tavern has patrons and franchisees flocking to this concept.
Taffer worked with Cuisine Solutions, the world’s master authority and leading sous vide manufacturer, to design the Taffer’s Tavern kitchen and craft a proprietary menu with rich, flavorful items that are prepared using the precise method of sous vide.
Taffer’s Tavern will use Shift4’s point-of-sale (POS) and SkyTab® mobile payment solutions to create a comprehensive, all-in-one payment processing ecosystem for the pioneering restaurant franchise.
Taffer has partnered with Compeat, now part of Restaurant 365, the leading provider of accounting, back office, workforce, and business intelligence solutions. Compeat’s solutions are designed to maximize restaurant profitability and control prime cost through actionable business intelligence.
Always one step ahead of the industry curve, Taffer established the Taffer’s Safe Dining System™ as a signature approach to build trust and transparency with patrons by committing to the highest safety standards.
In collaborating with Taffers Tavern, Krowne used its proprietary 3D bar configurator, signature ‘Zero-Step’ design process for cocktail preparation, and virtual reality (VR) training programs to create the inaugural Taffer’s Tavern bar design.
Ventless and automated cooking systems from The Middleby Corporation, a global leader in the foodservice equipment industry, are used exclusively in Taffer’s Tavern kitchens.
