Cane Garden bartenders
 
The regulars, who we loved, haven't been there the last two times we visited. Anyone know why?

Why not ask the person who is tending the bar?

I hear, Sandy and Dan were let go by the new owners.....why?....Sandy worked there more than 10 years...

My guess too many regulars who got free drinks..happens a lot here leave good tips and receive a free drink or two on occasion adds up over time Smart move replacing staff who over time become comfortable with regular clientele

So much for "this one is on the house" reward for steady customers. I assume you don't frequent watering holes regularly.

You condone stealing from employer...little here little there adds up
some patrons have no conscience especially after drink 3
Drinks are very affordable profits are thin as it is
I assume you frequent watering holes on a regular basis

Lot more profit from selling drinks than food.
Some of the prices for sodas, and mixers are obscene.

I assume you never worked as a bartender, or in a bar, or in a restaurant, or in a bank, or in retail.

Bartender/bar: After seeing the same couple come in every week for a few months and bringing all their pals, who become regular customers as well, you give the first couple a round on the house. That's not stealing. It's thanking them for patronage AND increased revenue via their friends, who might not ever have gone there, if the couple hadn't brought them that first time.

Restaurant: birthday cupcake or free scoop of icecream on a couple's wedding anniversary. Not stealing - it's encouraging repeat patronage.

Banking: free lollipops FTMFW

Retail: Loyalty cards = free stuff for the customer, and repeat business for the store. There is actual data that shows customers who have and use loyalty cards are 50% more likely, to spend 50% more at the store, than customers who don't have those cards. That's why the cashier is always trying to push them on you.

All of the above are either a) encouraged by the employer, b) provided by the employer, or c) required by the employer. No stealing. It's an expected part of the cost of doing business.

Chris and Dan both left. Dan went to manage a business within The Villages and Chris is dabbling in stock. Sandy maybe because she never took good care of customers.
