Why Your Bar Needs A Breathalyzer Vending Machine

breathalyzer vending machine

If you own a bar or restaurant you've probably considered, or at least heard of, the idea of installing a breathalyzer vending machine (like our AlcoScan AL3500 coin operated breathalyzer) in your establishment. Bar breathalyzer machines are becoming increasingly popular - and not just in bars and pubs. Breathalyzer vending machines are being used everywhere that alcohol is consumed: bars, restaurants, nightclubs, athletic events and more. There are tons of advantages to having your own professional coin operated breathalyzer in your bar, and practically zero reasons not to. Most importantly, having a breathalyzer vending machine at your business' location will potentially save lives.

The most obvious and direct advantage to having a breathalyzer at your bar or restaurant is that ideally you will be preventing people from driving intoxicated. If your business serves alcohol, you have a certain societal responsibility to do everything within reason to prevent your customers from driving drunk. According to the CDC, "almost 30 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver" every day. That's a startling statistic, and anything that anybody can do to reduce that should be done.

A breathalyzer machine for bars can also help improve the overall image of your bar or restaurant in your community. Buying a professional quality breathalyzer for your establishment shows your patrons that you are committed to being socially responsible, and that your business is a healthy part of the community.

Let's not forget the financial benefits that having a breathalyzer in your bar can provide for your business. For one, like any vending machine, once you pay off your initial investment, the ensuing sales are practically 100% profit. Apart from maintenance costs which are fairly minimal, there are no hidden fees whatsoever to owning a bar breathalyzer. With the AlcoScan AL3500 breathalyzer vending machine, the average breathalyzer test costs the owner about $.06. If you're charging $1 a test, 94% of your revenue is profit. You'd be hard pressed to find profit margins that great on any product or service, except for maybe the popcorn at a movie theater.

One common concern of business owners is about added liability. Many people are under the misconception that having a breathalyzer in your business could make you liable in the event that someone drives drunk after receiving a positive test. Luckily, there are laws in place that protect the business owner; breathalyzer tests are not admissible as evidence in any courtroom unless administered under very strict guidelines, by certified testers (law enforcement officials, for example) in specified locations. We've heard of some establishments even receiving discounts on their liability insurance just by owning a breathalyzer- so make sure to check with your insurance broker to see if any discounts are available for your business.

With strict new DUI legislation being enacted every year now is a great time to get your foot in the door and start adding some fun revenue to your bottom line. More and more bars will be featuring these neat devices in the future, so why not get a head start on the competition? A bar having a breathalyzer is still somewhat of a novelty; just having one will create some buzz about your business as your patrons will naturally discuss the breathalyzer with their friends.

You might even get some free PR if you choose to install a breathalyzer at your business' location. Bars installing breathalyzers is quite a hot topic and local businesses with the devices are getting a decent amount of exposure on news and media outlets. We can't imagine better press for a pub than a segment on the local news depicting your establishment as safe and responsible part of the community.

We live in an age of technology and instant gratification. People can now monitor their cholesterol levels, blood pressure and other vital stats in a heartbeat. Why not supply people with the means to determine their BAC as well? Could there be a more important "vital" statistic than the blood alcohol level of someone attempting to decide whether or not to get behind the wheel of a vehicle?
