5 Security Measures Necessary for Every Restaurant

by | Feb 8, 2023 | Strauss Security

If you run or manage a restaurant, you are probably well aware of all the security measures that need to be in place to run a successful business. From securing access to your building, to installing security cameras – there are many things to consider when it comes to securing your bottom line and keeping everyone in your establishment safe. The good news is – Strauss Security can provide many tools and devices that will make life easier for a restaurant manager or owner.

Let’s look at the 5 security measures Strauss Security can help you put in place to keep your restaurant and your employees safe and secure:


1. Access control:

Who is coming and going and at what times can be challenging to track. With an access control system from Strauss Security, we make it easier to gain control over who can access what entry points – meaning you can provide specific door access for employees, cleaning crew, deliveries, office, tech equipment, and even access to freezers or other storage areas.

2. Security cameras:

Keep yourself, your customers, and your employees safe and secure with the use of security cameras that can catch things you may have missed during a chaotic meal service. You can place cameras nearly anywhere you want to monitor and protect, such as the office, bar, cash register, kitchen, and the parking lot, to name a few. Strauss’s business video surveillance systems provide on-demand 24/7 remote access to real-time and archived footage – anytime from anywhere.

3. Temperature Monitoring:

Food should be stored correctly at all times to ensure compliance with health department requirements. This means that freezers and refrigerators must maintain safe temperatures. With Strauss Security solutions, we can work with you to develop a system to help you monitor temperatures in the areas where food and beverages are stored.

Additionally, Strauss has the tools to help you more easily monitor and control your building’s temperature. You can even manage this remotely, giving you control of the highs and lows of temperature control when not present at the restaurant.

4. Safes

When it comes to keeping money or other valuable items secure, there is nothing better than looking to a commercial grade safe. At Strauss, we offer a vast line of commercial safes for all of your security needs. We can have our staff deliver, secure it to the floor, and even add contacts so you know when it’s been accessed.

Keep your checks and cash safe by putting your deposits into the safe when you leave the restaurant each day. You can also keep your confidential employee information locked up.  You can visit our showroom to view our extensive selection.

5. Fire protection

Restaurants are typically subject to annual inspections to assess and eliminate potential fire and safety hazards in restaurants. This helps to ensure that all required codes and standards are being followed by the eating establishment. Inspections are critical not only to ensure the proper fire detection equipment is in place, but that the system is functioning as it should.

If you are planning a new restaurant, let Strauss Security Solution’s trusted and trained technicians design and install your fire system, providing you peace of mind knowing the system was installed correctly in proper working order from day one. If you already have an existing system in your restaurant, contact SEi to watch over your investment 24/7 in the event that the unexpected happens.



Whatever your restaurant needs, Strauss Security can customize a security plan that identifies and deters activities that can harm your business and threaten your employees. Secure your restaurant by knowing all the options Strauss Security provides. Contact Strauss Security today to learn more about what tools we can provide to keep your business secure.
