Rising Tide is a full service firm. Upon completion of your liquor license application, the RTC team will guide you further within your business and liquor retail operations. We will train and provide you with the tools you need to maximize your BC liquor stores to its full potential.
Layout & Inventory
If you wish to maximize store layout and ultimately increase your bottom line, RTC has a hands on approach to assist clients with showcasing their products, displaying inventory, coordinating cooler planning and layout. Customers shop more when products are displayed and highlighted. Overcrowding, or too little inventory has a direct correlation to sales at your till. Rising Tide can help maximize store inventory, and ensure the correct product is within a retail store. This will ultimately contribute to an increase in average ticket spending and translate to an increased bottom line.

Generally included within the business case report, are pro forma projections, demographics, competitor data, product mix analysis and construction costs if warranted.
HR & Staff Training

We will streamline the process to free up valuable time which gives owners the ability to focus on the growth of their business and be confident they have the right team in place.
For those locations who have the right team in place, the ever changing landscape of liquor rules and regulations creates additional liabilities and concerns for small business owners.
