Today we’d like to introduce you to Jamir Welcher.
Jamir, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Well, I started my business close to two years ago because I was basically tired of working behind multiple bars making another person’s dream come true. One of my main goals was to always work for myself. It’s extremely disappointing and humbling when you work so hard for another person or company and you get let go for whatever reason especially when you have a child, so I decided to step out on faith and start a company that I thought would be extremely lucrative and needed, and from there Last Call Bar Service started. My first event was a pop-up shop for my sister’s hair salon and from there my business has taken off servicing over 100 events to date!
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It hasn’t been smooth but it’s been worth it for sure. The hardest part about entrepreneurship is if you think about it really, you have nothing to fall back on but your faith to make something happen. The thought of knowing “if I don’t land this booking I don’t eat” will drive you to be successful, or it will drive you crazy. I’ve had to deal with both!
I’ve dealt with intertwining friendship with business and it took a turn for the worst, I’ve dealt with 100s of “No thank you” to the point when I first started I thought I was a fool for quitting my job. My first gigs I was undercutting myself, I wasn’t making any money. I wasn’t new to hustling but I new to doing business so I had to quickly learn how to capitalize instead of taking losses.
So many people didn’t give me any credit or any support when I first started now it seems like EVERYBODY is “so proud of me” and though it’s flattering it just drives me more to be a multimillion-dollar company because so many people doubted me.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Last Call Bar Service – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
Our company is full of enthusiastic, amazing, knowledgeable, and of course attractive bartenders that would love to service your next birthday party, celebration, bachelorette party, bachelor party, retirement parties, weddings, getaways, or any type of situation where you need an amazing bartending staff (both male or female) please don’t hesitate to contact us!
We have serviced events such as Caribbean Festival servicing over 8,000 people at once, Real Housewives Of Atlanta superstar Porsha Williams baby gender reveal party, Celebrity Hairstylist Terrence Davidson Hair Panel Discussion, Georgia Tech frat parties, and over 100 more events including parties, funerals, weddings, corporate gatherings, intimate couple dates, and any other situation!
I am most proud of the fact that I mainly focus and pay myself now instead of depending on somebody else for a paycheck. And most importantly, I am most proud that I am able to give young men and women an opportunity to work and bartend in environments that will broaden their expertise and skills! I love my company Last Call Bar Service.
We are set apart from other mobile bartending companies because we focus heavily on catering to our host and customers. And showing that not only are our cocktails amazing but our hospitality and customer service is 1 of a kind.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Right now, I am focused on enhancing our mobile bartending company and continue to send out staff to work and get their own money, however, I plan to broaden this company into a full-on entertainment company and building! A building where it can be turned into an event space and or a training facility for hospitality and for new bartenders! I plan to have a franchise of this company from state to state eventually going international!
