World of Beer Franchise

Craft beer tavern

In 2007 two best friends opened the World of Beer in the Westchase community of Tampa, FL. Their vision was to create a welcoming place where friends could gather to discover craft beer and swap stories while taking in a game or enjoying live music. Today, World of Beer is leading the unique, exploding cultural phenomenon of Craft Taverns. At our core is, of course, beer. We hunt and gather beers from around the world, offering the best craft variety on the planet to the beer aficionado and casual beer fan alike. Complementing our amazing beer selection is our delicious "tavern fare" menu, craft spirits, and live entertainment all served up by a passionate, insanely knowledgeable staff. The result, a winning concept and a truly golden opportunity.

Prior to the opening of a new tavern, we provide an extensive training program for you and your management team. The program includes topics such as product knowledge and history, customer service fundamentals, employee motivation, advertising, accounting & record keeping, purchasing, inventory management, point-of-sale (POS) system operation, and staff duties.
In addition to the initial management training program, we send a certified trainer to your tavern to offer hands-on assistance during the opening of your World of Beer.
After the initial opening, a field representative will make periodic visits to help make sure that these core competencies remain in place.

We are constantly improving and refining every aspect of the business by conducting research in the areas of product development, culinary innovation, information systems, operational methods and techniques, and marketing and advertising.

  • Your income potential as a World of Beer Franchise entrepreneur depends vastly on many factors. As an entrepreneur, the goals to achieve are related to expanding sales while lowering your operation costs and increasing the quality of your products and or services. Each month your operating costs can include royalty fees, mortgage / rent, supplies for products, staffing, utilities, bookwork, stationary and other items. From one month to the next, you may find your costs fluctuate, but your up-front costs are, for the most part, fixed and they will cover most of the initial setup of equipment, signage and renovations.
