    6 Ways to Help Prevent Restaurant Robberies

    Statistics have shown that restaurants, particularly those that open early and close late, are especially vulnerable to robberies…. and the number of incidents continues to rise.

    This increased criminal activity is due to many factors applicable to the restaurant industry:

    • -extended nighttime hours allow more time for robberies to be carried out under the cover of darkness
    • -large amounts of accumulated cash kept on-site can be alluring
    • -high rates of employee turnover can mean less extensive background checks
    • -large staffs can lead to “friends helping friends” take advantage of less secure situations
    • -set routines, day in and day out, help criminals plan their stealth moves for the least secure times

    Are restaurants doing enough to enhance their security plan?

    What can you do to increase security? There are several steps you can take to mitigate the possibility of a robbery at your place of business. Remember, a thief wants your money or your property and they want it fast! But they also want to get away with the crime, so whatever you can do to foul their plans will help protect your employees and your business.

    Beef up your “late-night and early morning security menus!”

    Here are some steps you can take to protect your restaurant from a robbery:

    1.Secure opening and closing times.

    Insist on the “buddy system” for opening and closing your restaurant. Law enforcement says this is one of the most important things you can do to curtail robberies at your place of business. There are specific security protocols for how one employee should open, unlock, enter, and check the premises while another employee stands ready to call for help should anything be amiss. Recommendation: Never schedule an employee to be alone in a restaurant at any time.

    2. Follow established protocol for cash handling.

    Keep cash on-hand to a minimum; don’t let cash accumulate in the cash drawer. Keep large bills in a time-controlled safe. Studies show that most robbers won’t wait around for twenty-minutes for a safe to unlock itself. This information, as well as your policy not to accept large bills, should be communicated to all employees and to the public. Combinations to safes should be changed regularly and especially when an employee entrusted with the access code is terminated. Don’t schedule bank trips at the same time each day. Your habits may be watched and assessed for a “robbery” opportunity. Recommendation: Change the route that the depositor takes to the bank each day and don’t have him/her carry a “cash bag” – use a container that is less obvious.

    3. Know your employees.

    Employee theft is the most frequent criminal activity in a restaurant. Deterring robberies at your restaurant starts during the employment screening process. Require references and then consistently conduct criminal background and reference checks. Restaurant employees are often nomadic and yet they are frequently allowed unlimited access to restaurant resources. This can be an open invitation to steal. Restaurants should have an honesty policy in place stating that any theft of money or resources is unacceptable. All employees should be required to sign the restaurant’s honesty policy, stating that they understand what actions are unacceptable and that they agree to comply with the policy. Recommendation: Assure applicants that lying on an application will not get them the job. When the word gets out about your background check follow-through, applicants with a criminal history of theft won’t bother to apply.

    4. Schedule security training for employees.

    Restaurant managers have lots of available resources to address security issues: crime-prevention videos, training session how-to’s, law enforcement presentations, security seminars, handouts, and take-home literature. Employees should be directed to never discuss sales volumes, disclose bank information, reveal alarm or safe codes, or divulge robbery prevention procedures with anyone. Reviews (quarterly, semi-annually, etc.) are vital to all employee continued training programs. Some restaurants report monitoring security issues “several times a day” to assure that security procedures are being followed. These reviews and follow-ups send positive security messages to employees, eliminating potential opportunities for would-be thieves. Recommendation: Regularly provide employee training that addresses the punishment for engaging in criminal activity, as well as the repercussions for “abetting” any criminal activity.

    5. Enhance the security of your employees and your business.

    There’s lots of other things you can do to protect both your employees and your premises. Some restaurants have invested in bulletproof drive-through windows, state-of-the-art digital video security cameras, and high-tech safes that can’t be opened by workers or robbers. Some businesses have installed silent alarm systems with activation buttons either located strategically throughout the building or on remote transmitters. Consider strategic video camera surveillance to include placing camera monitors near cash registers, in loading and receiving areas, near trash disposal areas, and beside exterior doors in full sight of customers. Always secure the back door; it should never be propped open. Recommendation: Install a peephole in the back door through which employees can view any and all activity in the rear of the restaurant and to prevent anyone from exiting the door blindly.

    6. Scale up lighting and visibility.

    Increase visibility both inside and outside the restaurant. Keep front doors and windows clear of signs or window writing that could impede employees from seeing suspicious persons outside. Landscaping should be well-maintained to allow for maximum visibility. Any foliage within four feet of walkways or doors should be no more than three feet high. Trees should hang no lower than six feet over the ground. Keep both the inside and the outside of your business well-lit at night for the safety of both employees and law enforcement. Exterior motion-detector lights are great impediments for those looking to engage in criminal activity during the nighttime hours. Recommendation: Install speed bumps in various places in your parking lot to discourage high speed getaways.

    The key to robbery prevention is to continually assess current security procedures, as well as current environments within each restaurant location, then immediately make any needed adjustments.

    App makes it easier for businesses to fight minimum wage hikes
    Looking to “make it easier for small businesses to add their voices to the minimum wage debate,” the Employment Policies Institute recently launched an iPhone app called “Wage Engage.” It seeks to alert business owners when minimum wage legislation is introduced in their area — and then lobby against a wage hike measure “at the push of a button” by sending a generic message to lawmakers.

    Federal ALJ Says Ban on Conducting Personal Business in Handbook Violated NLRA Rights
    What’s next? The illegality of performing work during working hours. The National Labor Relations Board continues its assault against standard employment policies considered to interfere with employee rights. This time, a federal administrative law judge accepted the Board counsel’s argument that a casino’s policy banning employees from conducting personal business during scheduled working hours violates employees’ right to engage in concerted activity under Section 7 of the NLRA.

    What Does Subway’s “Voluntary Agreement” with the US Department of Labor Mean for Joint Employer Status?

    This past week, Doctor’s Associates Inc.,  which is the owner and franchisor for the Subway sandwich restaurant chain entered into a Voluntary Agreement (the “Agreement”) with the US Department of Labor’s (DOL) Wage and Hour Division “as part of [Subway’s] broader efforts to make its franchised restaurants and overall business operations socially responsible,” and as part of Subway’s “effort to promote and achieve compliance with labor standards to protect and enhance the welfare” of Subway’s own workforce and that of its franchisees.

    While the Agreement appears intended to help reduce the number of wage and hour law claims arising at both Subway’s company owned stores and those operated by its franchisee across the country, the Agreement appears to add further support to efforts by unions, plaintiffs’ lawyers and other federal and state agencies such as the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB or Board), DOL’s own Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the EEOC to treat franchisors as joint employers with their franchisees.

    The Unions’ Phony Fight for $15

    Since 2012, a group calling itself “Fight for $15” has staged street theater protests in cities around the country. These protests are billed as “strikes,” although only a handful of individuals seem to have actually walked off their jobs. Instead, one typically sees small groups of protesters outside a local restaurant who, after a brief demonstration, are bused off to another city to repeat the process. To keep up media interest in these overhyped demonstrations, Fight for $15 has decided to host a “convention” in Richmond this week, hoping to piggyback on press attention from the presidential conventions in July.

    Fight for $15’s alleged purpose is to push for a higher minimum wage. Debate over the subject is certainly fair, but there is more than meets the eye to this group. While cleverly packaged as a genuine grassroots movement, the campaign is — in reality — a front organized and funded by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), the country’s largest labor union. In fact, according to U.S. Department of Labor reports, the SEIU has spent roughly $55 million on these activities.

    Company’s Missions: Not Resonating With Employees
    Most leaders recognize that a clear mission and purpose are crucial to their company.

    Many have devoted considerable time and effort to developing such a statement and posting its words prominently for employees and customers to see. And for good reason: A mission or purpose statement declares why the company exists, what it stands for and — just as importantly — what it doesn’t stand for.

    A compelling purpose can drive companies toward positive business outcomes, give employees something to aspire to, and inspire customers to a deeper personal and emotional attachment to companies’ products, brands or services.

    The problem is that just four in 10 employees worldwide strongly agree that the mission or purpose of their company makes them feel their job is important. And less than half of workers in any industry feel strongly connected to their company’s mission. These sentiments might contribute to the fact that only 13% of employees worldwide, and just 33% of employees in the U.S., are engaged in their jobs.

    It’s clear that a majority of leaders and managers are failing to connect employees with their company’s mission or to sustain a purpose-driven culture.

    5 Reasons to Pay Attention to Beacon Technology

    “Beacons” – A New Technology That Is Quickly Becoming Popular in the Restaurant Industry
    The restaurant industry is poised to make substantive use of beacon technology to not only build relationships with potential clients, but, and perhaps more importantly, to better serve existing customers. Beacons are part of what is called “Proximity Marketing.”

    So What are “Beacons”?
    Beacons (also called Stickers) are highly cost effective devices that can transmit information directly to a customer’s mobile device. Beacons use smartphone Bluetooth connections to transmit information to a mobile app. Once consumers download the app and choose to receive your information, their devices will be listening to your beacon which will automatically begin pinging their smartphone. Your marketing messages will be delivered each time a connected smartphone passes by your beacon. The incoming ping will sound whether the app is open or not.

    How Do Beacons Work?
    Beacons are tiny computers with powerful processors and large memory capabilities. They are powered by a coin battery and have built-in antennas and motion sensors. Beacons broadcast tiny radio signals which customers’ smartphones can receive. A downloaded app allows customer devices to receive and interpret micro-locations and contextual messages. Connecting with customers through beacons allows you to collect data and build a new generation of consumers that are connected to your brand, via their devices, in the real world.

    These small wireless beacons can be attached to any location or object and are small enough to be placed anywhere in a restaurant or nearby location. When smart devices come within range of the beacon, they will receive your messages. Some beacons can allow consumers to respond to the message, other beacons can enable security protection or services such as automated check-in or paperless payments.

    What Can “Beacons” Do For Your Business?
    Today’s consumers value their mobile devices as sources of information. Studies have shown that consumers also appreciate personalized mobile engagement based on their interests, locations, and buying preferences. Integrating beacons with your other mobile strategies will facilitate timely responses to the contextual content needs of your consumers. Mobile marketing with beacons can result in more customers, higher consumer satisfaction, and greater loyalty.

    The uses of beacons are seemingly endless. Here are just five ways you can use this new proximity-detection technology to tailor your customers’ experiences with your brand directly to their wants, needs and desires:

    1. Beacons can allow diners to order their drinks and meal choices on their way to your restaurant or from their table once they get to the restaurant, tapping into today’s customer’s desire for self-service options. Connecting through a beacon can let QSR customers order ahead to help reduce waiting time. A long-range beacon can also ensure that a specialty order is ready for pick-up by alerting the kitchen staff when the customer is within a certain distance from the location.

    2. Placing beacons close to a restaurant’s location can incentivize potential customers to come to your restaurant by offering special offers or other promotions such daily lunch or dinner deals. This technology eliminates the need for giant signs outside your restaurant or passing out flyers in the parking lot.

    3. Beacons placed in the parking lot or down the street can inform customers as to current wait times. Customers don’t like long wait times, but if they alerted to the wait time ahead of them they can plan accordingly, perhaps to take a leisurely walk around the area or enjoy a drink at the bar. Customers will appreciate your transparency and effort to give them a good dining experience.

    4. Beacons can remind diners as they exit to provide their comments and opinions in real-time. This eliminates the additional step of diners having to go to a computer to access your online customer satisfaction survey. Bringing the survey directly to the customer in this ultra-convenient way can increase the chances of their participation.

    5. Beacons can deliver personalized menu offerings to regular customers based on previous orders, send rewards to frequent visitors, and deliver discount offers to entice first-time customers to come back again.

    Use Beacons to Connect with Your Customer
    The restaurant industry has a lot to gain from proximity marketing which allows establishments to build meaningful and personalized relationships with their customers. Beacons collect massive amounts of behavioral data that can shed light on restaurant traffic, such as the number of hits for a particular offer, the length of time that customers dwell on the marketing messages, the busiest date and time ranges for message reception, etc. All this analytic information can result in better allocation of staff and other resources and improvement of customer services, such as menu adjustment and types of promotions offered. Ultimately beacons can help provide your customers with the best experience possible, resulting in increased consumer loyalty.

    Loss Prevention…It’s always on the menu!

    Monetary/profit losses in the restaurant industry can amount to billions of dollars every year, but loss prevention policies can incorporate preventative measures to mitigate the damage wrought by these ever-increasing numbers. Of course, there’s always more to understand and more to do when it comes to LP in the restaurant industry.

    Where do most losses occur?

    The root causes of most losses to a business fall into three general categories:

    1. Internal theft
    2. External theft
    3. Employee/Vendor Error

    All three of these areas obviously require their own set of rules and regulations concerning loss prevention. But as broad as these categories appear, they still have much in common.

    Dealing with loss no matter the cause

    Of course, it’s important to categorize, analyze, and evaluate the specific kinds of loss in an industry, but addressing the occurring loss, no matter where it originates, can be organized and deliberate. In its report, The 6 Principles of Loss Prevention, LP Innovations (LPI) urges companies to take actions dealing with loss, on six fronts.

    1. Prevention
    Prevention is necessary for effective long-term solutions. Powerful preventative measures can put safeguards in place, make sure resources are used wisely, and provide a framework for loss prevention actions and reactions. A prevention plan should include written, measurable policies and procedures, a workable communication plan, effective measurement instruments, dedicated resources to ensure success, and a solid commitment from management and loss prevention professionals.

    2. Awareness
    An effective Loss Prevention program requires buy-in from many sources; up and down the organizational hierarchy, across multiple departments/divisions, and in and outside the company. Communication channels might include newsletters, podcasts, webinars, training sessions, email blasts, and listserv information blurbs. Though the vehicles may vary, the message should always be clear, concise, complete, and consistent.

    3. Compliance
    LP policies and procedures only work if they are implemented and followed. Making sure everyone is on board and adhering to the LP plan will require some sort of compliance evaluation. This evaluation may take several forms from informal questioning of employees and compliance checklists to more formal compliance audits. Knowing where misunderstandings or inactions lie regarding the LP plan can help identify problem areas.

    4. Detection
    It’s sometimes hard to be extra-observant in familiar environments. Small changes overtime are less noticeable. When it comes to loss detection, however, it is important to not just observe changes, but rather detect what is happening in a given situation. A simple employee mistake, made over and over again because it wasn’t detected, can lead to much larger problems in the future. Detection should ultimately lead to correction.

    Some steps to follow:

    • Articulate a clear plan of what should be happening in all operations.
    • Identify what signs to look for when detecting errors.
    • Plan regular, consistent, objective, and systemic audits of compliance.
    • Analyze all data from informal observations, scheduled inspections, and auditing reports.

    5. Investigation
    When problem areas aren’t fixed early or preventative measures don’t thwart a loss, an investigation may be necessary. This, of course, means that a loss has occurred. But now the goal is to reduce future losses. Proper investigation will require highly trained professionals who understand the legal protocols involved in the collection of evidence, invasion of privacy issues, evaluation of facts, questioning of victims and alleged perpetrators, and formal, written accusation procedures.

    6. Resolution
    Resolution involves the actions taken to address the problem and the implementation of a plan to prevent its recurrence. Resolution can include revisions to company policies such as better screening procedures for employees, more secure money-handling procedures, computer monitoring, up-dated training sessions, relocating surveillance cameras, etc. The two key drivers of any resolutions efforts and decisions should be the policies of the company and the human factors involved. Resolution efforts, including all post-event analysis and implementation of new policies, should be documented.

    Positive outcomes from negative events can lead to future success

    The process of Prevention, Awareness, Compliance, Detection, Investigation, and Resolution sets up a specific plan of action for dealing with losses that fall under the broad categories of internal theft, external theft, and human error, in many types of businesses. The LP issues that have to be addressed on a daily basis may seem mundane at times, but bigger problems may point to the need for a rigorous examination of present policies. Considering changes to work effectively for tomorrow’s business, especially in the light of an ever-shifting consumer landscape and an increasingly high-tech world can be daunting. Start with step one… move ahead with determination and vigilance…the plan will take shape.
