The nation’s market leader in self-pour beverage dispense technology iPourIt publishes a case study proving profitability in fast-casual concepts.


iPourIt, Inc. recently released a case study proving how its technology helps fast-casual operators differentiate their business in a busy market, increase profits, and increase alcohol to food sales. Slice Pizza, a fast-casual pizzeria in Laguna Beach, California, installed an 18-tap system powered and supported by iPourIt in 2017.

Darren Nicholson, Vice President of iPourIt, says, “iPourIt has designed and developed a technology solution for operators to overcome common fast-casual obstacles, such as keg yield, labor costs, tapping into the Millennial market, and more. With the correct implementation, Slice Pizza is a perfect case study to show other operators how profitable this concept and technology can be in the fast-casual market.”

Owner of Slice Pizza Cary Redfearn adds, “At Slice Pizza, we have a higher percentage of alcohol to food sales and sell a higher percentage of beer and wine than any of our local competitors with a similar concept. With iPourIt, we save costly space and reduce our overhead costs from that of a traditional bar.”

Since 2012, iPourIt collects extensive data for their operators and to gain valuable market knowledge. The data collected includes products poured, amount poured, inventory, patron demographics, and more. Operators can use this data to optimize operations and product and pricing strategies.

iPourIt’s data shows Slice Pizza pours over 18,892 ounces per month, generating 15% of alcohol to food sales compared to the industry average of 4-6%. Within two months, Cary received a return on his investment. iPourIt and the self-pour concept allow Slice Pizza to get the most out of selling alcohol with minimal additional costs, such as labor and real estate.

iPourIt’s case study with Slice Pizza shows the value and profitability of its self-serve technology. For more information on iPourIt self-pour beverage dispense technology, call us at (949) 270-0556 or email sales@ipourit.com.
