Following 10 months of stocktaking, a leisure company saw an average 7.9% increase to liquor GP%, across 4 key sites.
The leisure company, with whom we have worked for a number of years, utilise our stocktaking services throughout their estate to maintain profitability and operating efficiency.
A number of the company’s key sites receive regular monthly liquor stocktakes, allowing for better stock control and profit analysis. These particular sites evidenced a positive trend of GP% improvement in 2016. Starting with an average of 56.1 GP% at the beginning of the year, this increased to 64% towards the end of the year.
Our stocktakers make it their mission to help clients improve their GP through maximising yield potential. Interestingly all four sites saw an improvement in yield that began at an average of 87% that rose to 97.2% over that same period of time. An average improvement of 10%.
Recommended monthly stocktakes meant that our customer had oversight of areas of concern. Our practical advice, which was faithfully followed up by the operators of the leisure centres, was invaluable in ensuring that
the customer was optimising the buying and selling cycle of their products.
Each of the four sites operate within an entirely distinctive segment of the leisure industry, ranging from sports, to events, entertainment, craft and design. The peaks and troughs in trends can therefore be further attributed to the seasonal variances commonplace in each type of leisure segment.
