As KUBARZ continues to grow, with franchise launches across the country, the NSW Far North Coast joins the ranks as the location of the newest mobile bar operations.
Fulfilling the needs of customer demand in the Byron to Gold Coast region, KUBARZ Byron Bay provides exceptional budget-friendly mobile bar services for parties, corporate functions and wedding hire.
Headed by experienced barman and Tweed Heads local Richard White, the Byron Bay mobile bar service is in good hands. Backed by almost three decades of hospitality, bar and sommelier experience, White is a fantastic choice to run the local events hire operation.
Owning a KUBARZ franchise for Richard is the culmination of his dream to operate his own business.
“When I first looked at starting my own mobile bar business a few years ago, I discovered that the process of applying for liquor licences is quite complicated and time-consuming,” says Richard.
“So after deciding to buy into a franchise, I found out that KUBARZ has been around since 2003 and is rated as the number one mobile bar business in Australia.”
Richard will be looking after a large function-filled region, from Tweed Heads South to Byron Bay, whereby weddings and corporate getaway weekends are regularly held in the area.
Richard is looking forward to being a very hands-on manager, involved in every aspect. He envisages his franchise as being very successful because not only does he have the necessary skills to deliver an extremely high level of service, he is prepared to do the hard work to triumph in the competitive hospitality industry.
“I will be training all staff, running events and looking after the local marketing,” says Richard.
Turning it into a family affair, Richard’s wife and sister-in-law will operate the administration side of the business.
Richard believes KUBARZ is well positioned to be the major player in the marketplace because it is so well established – already rated the number-one mobile bar business in Australia.
“New owners are jumping on board all the time, with the full backing of the head office to help them get started. I have already made contact with the two franchise owners near me on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane,” says Richard, who is excited about the opportunity to have “each other’s backs”, so that they can pool their resources to handle very large events when the need arises.
Richard says his time at KUBARZ has taught him that if you look after your customers by doing more than they expect they will tell all their friends about you, and it’s this valuable word-of-mouth reputation that White wants to draw upon to help grow his business.
KUBARZ managing director Drew Davies says the successful KUBARZ business model is based on being a one-stop shop for all style of functions, from intimate private events to large corporate affairs.
Davies says that Byron Bay has long been in need of an all-in-one mobile bar hire service, that not only hires staff, but supplies glassware, tableware, serves drinks and food and cleans up as well.
Richard has been extremely impressed with his interaction with KUBARZ as a franchisor.
“I’m impressed that Drew started KUBARZ as a single mobile bar business then grew it to what it is today,” says Richard. “The quality of service is awesome and franchise owners have access to a professional website and marketing advice. What I really love is how positive Drew has been and how available he is to talk to individual owners on a regular basis.”
Richard is looking forward to “being able to use all my skills to make the best possible cocktails for my customers. I use a lot of Molecular and Craft techniques to make awesome cocktails. I spend hours studying how the top bars from around the world make their drinks and I promise to make cocktails either equal to or better than anything available anywhere else for my customers.”
KUBARZ launched in 2003, and has steadily expanded its mobile bar business to include food catering, party hire, pop-up bars for festivals and other events management services.
