Opening a restaurant is a big investment. And as a restaurant owner it’s your responsibility to protect it from any untoward incidents like burglaries. At Protect My Property, we spend our professional life’s discussing security measures that protect your restaurant, your customers, and employees from burglaries and theft.
- Making the right investment
First things first, it’s always a smart decision to invest in products that increase the security of your restaurant. For instance, choosing reinforced glass for doors and windows, installing business security systems like CCTV systems and alarm systems, and security lighting go a long way in lowering the risk of burglary.
- Training your employees
Many restaurant owners and managers overlook security focused employee training. When you have a streamlined security culture, your employees are comfortable voicing their concerns. Employee training is extremely important when it comes to preventing employee thefts but, this will also ensure they are vigilant in noticing any customer related behaviour that could be eradicated and in ensuring the premises is secure at all times.
- Limiting cash flow
Heavy cash is what attracts criminals. Limiting cash flow is important in lowering the risk of robbery. One of the best ways to limit cash flow in your restaurant is to deposit cash frequently at your bank and therefore not to keep large quantities of cash on the premises.
- Ensuring everybody has left after closing
It is important to make sure that there is nobody loitering around your restaurant premises when you close for the day. It is too easy for people to hide away and not re-emerge until after you have closed and left.
- Limiting people to the cash register
Limiting people who can access the cash register is important in monitoring the number of people using this valuable asset. You can even assign the rights to access the cash drawer to one or two people thus securing the criminals easy access.
- Well-lit interior and exterior
Poorly-lit areas offer strong opportunities for burglars. It is therefore, crucial to install bright security lighting both inside and outside your restaurant.
- Running audits frequently
One efficient way to prevent internal thefts is to make sure that audits are performed regularly. Doing this helps in effectively identifying any loopholes and this will keep your staff on their toes.
- Installing a professional security system
Installing a professional security system is one of the most effective ways to ensure protection of your restaurant. Security products such as CCTV cameras are not just important for monitoring, but they also act as a deterrent to thieves and burglars.
