The Bartenders Workshop has been built on passion, drive and commitment. A determination to uplift bartenders, waiters and managers in South Africa and to increase service levels has made us a highly successful business which is recognised as an industry leader.
The Bartenders Workshop was established in 1998 as a training facility for the hospitality industry. Etienne and Kurt Schlechter recognised the need for training of front line service staff to develop the hospitality industry in South Africa.
We have managed to convince venue owners, hoteliers and restaurants of the value of training and outsourcing professional bartending staff. By establishing bartending as a recognized trade and encouring sales through product knowledge and expertise, we have shown these owners the value of investing in their staff.
Our events and functions business has grown due to the fact that people have recognized the need for professional hassle free bartending and eventing services.
The Bartenders Workshop is the undoubted leaders in our field. In an ever-changing industry it is important to constantly assess the value of the services we offer our clients. By maintaining local and international relationships in the bar and beverage industry we ensure that we are aware of new trends and developments. Our goal has always been and continues to be the delivery of unrivalled service.
