In November 2010, the Tavern Restaurant Group opened their latest pub, this time in Tampa, Florida. Opening a restaurant is always challenging. Add a crowded market and depressed economy to the mix, and you have the situation that faced these restaurateurs when they decided to expand into Tampa.
Given the size of the restaurant space, along with its two-story configuration, the Tampa location provided the group with an opportunity to do something different. Initially, they thought to provide a number of tap tables on the second floor to create a space that could be used for private, or semiprivate parties.
In investigating the latest tap table options, the Tavern Restaurant Group was introduced to DraftServ Technologies by Atlanta restaurateur, Jose Hevia. In addition to installing a beer management system for Jose, DraftServ had created a very popular beer wall at his Cheeky restaurant that allows customers to pour their own beer in a responsible and controlled manner.
