Services Specific to the Liquor Industry

The R&D Agency is the only investigative member of the Minnesota Licensed Beverage Association (MLBA), a group primarily comprised of restaurants, bars, and liquor stores.  These businesses have several things in common:  they serve alcohol; cash transactions are common; and theft can be rampant.  We provide valuable services to this industry that are unique and of great value to owners and managers of these establishments who’re intent on controlling loss and eliminating or discouraging theft and misconduct.  Whether we’re asked to determine if potential underage patrons are having their IDs checked consistently and thoroughly, or performing “Bar Spots” to identify areas of concern such as theft or poor service or unsanitary procedures – we act as independent observers who can gather information and provide these clients with the information they need to enact change and improvement.
