As I wrestle with new management techniques as we open our #2 I'm very worried about theft.

One idea I have I got from Las Vegas. I'm hiring a local book keeping company to walk in unannounced (a couple times a month) ...just like casino dealers) and switch drawers before closing and do the cash out looking for the errors.

Any other ideas? What did you do, try, or have done to you?

Get a good computer system like RTS so you can remote monitor sales.

Walk in, un-announced and do a complete audit.

Count concessions items purchased and compare with items sold and do an inventory each month or more if you need to.

Asking the local accountant to do a secret-shopper program is a good idea.

But ultimatly you have to trust your manager. You will know when things don't add up.

Trust? Now that's a novel idea! I'm like Ron Reagan... Trust but verify!
