Let the shitstorm begin.
I don’t think there is a topic more, how shall we say, “energizing,” from an owner/manager perspective, than theft. Put bluntly, it’s the bleeding that you can never stop. You can only cauterize the wounds in a sense.
Any halfwit putting together a business plan must account for losses. Personally I’d estimate about 20%. Holy crap! That’s a hell of a lot of loss! Yes – but not uncommon. There are all kinds of losses – the most significant, in order,being (1) employee theft and (2) spoilage (3) vendor/customer theft. Today, let’s address bartender shenanigans shall we? There’s a ton of information on the Interwebz regarding theft . However, most of it is from an owner’s perspective or some sort of training/knowledge-share in the form of commercial loss prevention. What you just about never hear, is the truth about stealing from an insider’s point of view – a bartender in the trenches.
