How Policies and Procedures Can Save Your CannaBusiness


The Small Business Administration states that half of start-up businesses fail in the first five crucial years. Reasons vary from cash flow issues to poor management. You may be ahead of the competition in those aspects but how prepared are you for a devastating event, such as a robbery? You’re lack of processes could end up being the demise of your business.

As a business owner, it’s very important to have these written policies and procedures in place in order to grow and protect your business. However, with everything that takes place in starting a new business, creating these policies and procedures have a tendency to fall by the wayside.

It is important to have these in place to ensure you are taking the necessary precautions to secure your company and its assets. The best practice to bring this into a reality is to hire a security consultant. Security consultants not only work with business owners to write policies and procedures, but also offer on-site security assessments, loss prevention training, insurance management and much more.

Tony Gallo is the senior director for Sapphire Protection. He has over 30 years of experience in security including 17 years working as the Director of Loss Prevention and Safety for EZCorp, which had over 1,300 financial loan service locations. With over 30 years of experience you can see how he is well qualified to lead your company into the right direction.

Sapphire Protection is well versed in all of the cannabis legislation and has worked with dispensaries and grows nationwide. One of Tony’s clients, Tami Marron of Professional Midwest Dispensary, stated “Tony readily worked with our local architect to create a custom security layout and security plan addressing the unique spatial requirements of our future medical cannabis dispensary and meeting the stringent requirements of the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation.”

Tony Gallo was also received the Southwest Cannaward for “Most Influential Person in the Cannabis Industry.” For more information you can check it out here.
