5% profits go to a charitable cause
 
(+4, -4)

The bar and nightclub business is perhaps one of the most saturated of industries today, yet it remains one of the most successful and profitable.

The idea here is to open a chain of bars where a percentage of profits go to a charitable cause. 5% may seem like a large figure, however average bars in central London (for example) turn over 5 mil + per year.

This roughly equates to: shitloads of profit.

If this cant be arranged (for whatever reason), then pricing models should be tweaked and modified to accomodate for this 5%. Highly unnoticable when the cheapest bottle of vodka costs in excess of 200 GBP

With the right marketing and location these bars could become the hub of all thats charitable in the business. Events could be hosted all year round, supporting causes such as breast-cancer awareness and aids day....to name just a few.

       Often times charitable causes do care where the money came from. It would be in better form if 5% of the money went to the development of a program that kept drunk drivers off the street.

       Do you think club patrons would be more likely to visit a "charitable" club?

       I almost fishboned you just for that. People can vote whatever they want.   

       Like the idea though.

       I don't drink. That's how I can vote against this.
