Your restaurant is busy and let’s face it, you can’t be everywhere at all times. How do you make sure your inventory is not disappearing as a result of employee theft? It is a harsh reality that employee theft in the restaurant industry is estimated at $6 billion according to the National Restaurant Association.
Separation of duties, limited access to cash or assets, valuable food products, alcohol, and internal and external audits can help restaurant operators increase efficiency and reduce losses due to theft by employees.
Here are a few examples of employee theft in the restaurant industry:
- Food and liquor inventory
- Unpaid food consumption
- Credit card fraud
- Stolen tips
Additionally, these types of theft may often go undetected for long periods of time because proper internal control procedures or security measures are not in place.
Cambro’s new Camshelving Security Cage provides safe storage from loss of pilferage for valuables such as liquor, steaks, seafood, wine, exotic fruits/vegetables, champagne and spirits.
