Located in the beautiful town of Highland, NY is The Corner; a charming peach house-turned-business-front that is now a liquor store on “the corner” of Eldred. They provide the community with spirits, beers and wines at fabulous prices.
When the Corner Liquor Store decided to upgrade their POS, they knew the impact it would have on their business. While Point of Sale systems themselves are necessary, a system designed around liquor store needs are absolutely essential. A general register or electronic register system leaves liquor stores with major flaws in their operations that can be costly or detrimental. With caution in mind and with a critical eye, they began their search for the best liquor store POS.
After diligent research of cost analysis, functionality and reliability, the Corner Store turned to Cafe Cartel. The consultants at Cafe Cartel reviewed their needs with them and provided them options at multiple price points for software and hardware packages. The bottom line was that Cafe Cartel put the control back in their hands. Cafe Cartel placed their priorities and needs first while providing them the most reliable solution on the market.

Mister Vapor is Etobicoke’s most popular vape shop in Toronto, Canada. They have a wide variety of specialty e-juices and quality electronic vaping products. What makes Mister Vapor stand out from the crowd is their stellar customer service and knowledgeable staff. The employees here take their time with every person and provide valuable product insights to their customers.
When it came time for Mister Vapor to choose a Point of Sale system, they had some requirements for what would best suit their needs. Firstly, they wanted to provide their own hardware and to purchase software only. Secondly, they wanted a solution that could easily track their long list of e-juices, mods, accessories and battery options. Essentially, their products are sold in variations ranging from different sizes to different strengths. So it didn’t make sense to have 9 different buttons in their system for one flavor. It was clear to them that a retail POS system lacking in industry knowledge wouldn’t sufficiently handle their inventory setup. With their priorities in mind they started comparing various Point of Sale systems.
After careful research they came across Cafe Cartel Systems. CCS provides hardware and software options. They sell various systems at different price points. This flexibility empowers their users with a system that best fits each businesses needs. This meant that Mister Vapor could purchase software only and choose their own hardware. First requirement: check.
Mister Vapor was pleased to find out that CCS had a inventory system designed around their industries needs. They can filter their buttons from liquids to brands, to flavors, then by size and strengths. CCS handles kit and combo pricing as well. This organizes inventory in an intuitive way and requires only minimal data entry to get started.
Within two training sessions, Mister Vapor had their POS up and ready to go. They gained access to additional features that included, vendor re-order lists, reconciling, reporting and age verification. Though Cafe Cartel is based out of the United States they service worldwide, which means that Mister Vapor doesn’t loose any access to technical support by simply choosing to buy a system based in the US.

AXO Liquors is located in Fort Worth, TX and sells spirits, beers and wines on a 7,000 square foot inventory. They also offer other convenience items such as lotto tickets, tobacco products, snacks and soft drinks. But mostly they’re known for their very large supply of various tequila brands! They even deliver to large businesses including bars and restaurants.
When AXO began their search for a POS system they needed a provider who supplied a solution to the liquor industry specifically. CCS provides industry-specific solutions as well as options relating to location and their unique regulations. For example, 38 states have Dram Shop Laws. These laws hold the business liable to any injuries caused by an over-served customer. This includes Texas. However, Texas also has a law called the Texas Safe Harbor Law. This protects liquor stores against excess liability claims if the store employees attend a TABC-approved “seller training program.” This program protects the business from liability if the accused employee had attended the program.
Considering the above information, how does this apply to the POS system? Essentially, the business owner would need to definitively prove that the accused employee, who attended the program, did in fact ring the customer up. Employee pin codes are not sufficient as they can be manipulated; and spending hours reviewing security footage isn’t an ideal solution either. Therefore Cafe Cartel Systems supplies fingerprint scanners with direct integration for a more secure setup. It became clear to AXO that CCS knew the industry and could provide options tailored to their needs.
When AXO received their POS system, they gained access to a database of over 10,000 products with inventory location tracking for their large storefront. And of course they gained standard POS features such as employee management, reporting and reconciling.
