A friend of mine has all the passion of an entrepreneur and absolutely no patience. When news of potential privatization of the state run liquor stores hit his state he had visions of buying and running several of these locations. He gave no thought to liquor bottle security or loss prevention of any kind. He just knew he was going to run his own fleet of package stores and be the boss.
I obviously tried to help ground him a bit as I have done throughout our friendship. I wanted him to sit down and formulate a business plan that included a well rounded loss prevention piece that addressed bottle security directly. I even offered to do some research for him since I knew he would not give it a thought otherwise. I was looking for a company that made any type of bottle locks. At that point in time I didn’t know if there was any such thing as a bottle lock. I was hoping there would be bottle locks that could be placed somewhere on the bottle to deter shoplifting. It was imperative that we find a bottle security solution before my friend bought one or more of these businesses otherwise we would be playing catch up forever.
I found a company called Alpha security, they had an entire system, the EASy bottle system that employed alarmed bottle locks. I could not believe our luck. In speaking with Alpha Security representative I was happy to hear there were different models of the bottle lock and that he would be happy to bring the actual bottle locks to a sit down meeting to discuss Alpha security’s potential to do business with my friend.
My friend had purchased three locations and was excited to get started. We reviewed several options for liquor bottle security including the EASy bottle system, several versions of the bottle lock, CCTV and wireless video monitoring. The Alpha Security representative was very helpful and was very knowledgeable regarding overall bottle security. He helped my friend make some very cost effective decisions regarding his liquor bottle security strategy. In the end it was a mix of the EASy bottle security system and CCTV that became the foundation for my friend to secure his business.
