"I always address my customers by name, show them respect and listen to them. For special occasions I like to make a shot especially for the person celebrating. I ask them what they like and I put on a little show to make them feel special. Throughout the night I check in with them to make sure they have everything they need."
How do you go above and beyond? Customers want to feel special when they walk in wearing that tiara, and it's up to you to help make their night more enjoyable. Do you give out free shots for the bridal party or do you show off your flare? What will you do to entertain your customers and offer the best service to keep them coming back?
