Effective Hood and General Cleaning

Being in restaurant business, you know, one does not get a second chance to make a great first impression.

Suppliers , Employees and Your Customers

Your suppliers, employees, and above all your customer's perceptions of your restaurant establishment are formed before their food arrives. Making sure your restaurant environments are clean can help lead to a great experience for everyone especially customers. Customers are less likely to return to a food establishment after having a bad experience due to lack of cleanliness, dusty and dirty appearance.

Sanitizing and removing cross contamination

Sanitizing and completely removing the possibility of cross-contamination (coli, campylobacter, and everyone’s favorite, salmonella) especially around food preparation areas should always be a primary concern for restaurant managers, owners, and employees.

A restaurant that cleans and decontaminates specific areas as they become contaminated (such as food preparation surfaces, hoods, kitchen exhaust, or dining area tables and surfaces ) will maintain an upstanding appearance. During busy periods, cleanliness is more difficult to maintain and should be remedied as quickly as possible once there is a slow down of incoming customers but cleaning needs to be a constant task.

Consumers are aware restaurants

Restaurant cleanliness is only going to become more significant as consumers are more aware of a restaurant’s appearance, local news, and internet restaurant review portals.

However, it is important to note that constant spot-cleaning will only delay, not remove, the need for deep cleaning. The chicken and exterior of a food service establishment should be maintained and cleaned regularly as it is the first thing a potential customer will see. Having an unclean interior and exterior may directly affect a customers’ choice to enter the establishment and reflects badly on the business as a whole. Using an easy go-to checklist, such as the following, that covers important areas will provide a helpful reminder for cleaning or sanitizing food service areas.
