The restaurant industry is challenged by a unique set of security threats that compromises the safety of restaurant staff, patrons, and assets. During any given shift, a restaurant typically experiences high volumes of foot traffic, processes dozens of credit card transactions, and generates large amounts of cash. Theft is astoundingly rampant: studies indicate that in the restaurant industry alone, theft results in staggering losses upwards of $6 billion annually. The majority of this theft is committed by the restaurant’s own staff – there are countless opportunities and circumstances in which they can easily steal and remain undetected.
Restaurant staff – particularly managers – are often alone on the premises late at night to process the daily financial reports, complete their inventory counts, etc. This makes them particularly vulnerable targets of violence and armed robbery both inside the restaurant and in the parking lot. Additionally, any establishment where alcohol is consumed can quickly become a conducive environment for disorderly, belligerent behavior among patrons. Excessive drinking will lower inhibitions, impair a person’s judgement and increase the risk of aggressive behaviors. Studies have shown that roughly 40% of prison inmates who are incarcerated for violent offenses were under the influence of alcohol when their crime was committed.
These types of security threats not only jeopardize the safety of your employees and customers, they also seriously impact your business’s bottom line and reputation. Negative reviews about crisis situations occurring at your business have a powerful and destructive impact on your bottom line that will quickly empty your restaurant and destroy your business. Simply put, maintaining a safe establishment within your restaurant and its parking lot is critical for continued business and increased profitability at your restaurant.
