Before Corso Ventures started using Bevinco at this bar, their shrinkage numbers were coming in at 21% loss. Now they are consistently under 3%. Chris Corso says he makes back at least 20 times annually Bevinco’s cost of service.

By 2012, Tim Huels was at a turning point. He’d spent 11 years working his way up from intern to area manager at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in northwest Arkansas, but, he says, “I always said that when I turned 30 I would reevaluate my situation and if I was able to take a risk, I would.” So after his 30th birthday, he found a risk he was willing to take: buying a franchise with Sculpture Hospitality, which helps bars and restaurants run more efficiently via its proprietary inventory-management system and sales and training programs.
