Jim is right.
And don't forget what goes out the back door.
One simple hint for anyone who has a business. Use clear garbage bags.
Employees will hide a roast beef or couple bottles of whiskey in the
garbage bags and then come back later and retrieve them.
As far as bartenders go, if you know 50 ways for them to steal from you.
they will know 51.
Plan to always be there. It is a bruital business.
