Protect your Profits From Preventable Loss

Every restaurant experiences some level of loss – fraud, theft, waste, compliance issues, and inefficient processes that eat into margins and hurt profitability. Restaurant loss prevention strategies involve addressing these issues as they occur and taking steps to prevent them in the future.

For your restaurant, the line between profit and loss is razor-thin. Protect your hard-won profits using data analytics to automatically flag activities indicating preventable loss, all while improving margins, increasing sales, and ensuring a consistent customer experience.

Identify Fraud and Theft
  • Detect internal theft by automatically flagging suspicious voids, transfers, and comps
  • Flag indicators of external theft like gift card fraud and promotion abuse
  • Confirm suspicious behavior with video of the transaction
Control Food Costs
  • Compare food cost trends to item sales to identify variances
  • Use food cost data to assist with menu engineering and pricing to maximize margins
  • Monitor employee meals and other comp'd items for out-of-policy discounting
Improve Labor Productivity
  • Compare employee performance metrics to identity high and underperformers
  • Revise hiring and training practices to minimize turn-over costs
  • Analyze sales by day, channel, and daypart to optimize scheduling
Ensure Manager Follow-up
  • Identify recurring problems and define potential causes and acceptable follow-up
  • Validate that every issue has been appropriately addressed in the field
Maximize Sales and Margins
  • Track the success of limited-time offers (LTOs) and other promotions
  • Increase order size with targeted upsell techniques
Fine-Tune Speed of Service
  • Streamline ordering, cash handling, cook times, and payment processes to reduce wait times
  • Set realistic goals and tailor training and processes to the needs of the business

Build Your LP Strategy

Whether you run an established chain or an up-and-coming restaurant, ignoring preventable sources of profit loss can derail the outlook of any business. A successful restaurant LP strategy revolves around two things:
