How to Prepare for a Restaurant Inspection

Restaurant Rating

nspections are an important fact of life for any restaurant owner. Throughout the year, health officials will make unannounced visits to your restaurant and ensure that your operation is being run safely and in compliance with the pertinent regulations. Failing to pass muster can have serious consequences for your business. Indeed, in the most serious cases, infractions can close you down altogether.

Fortunately there are steps you can take to ensure that you are prepared for a restaurant inspection. Here are some tips on how to prepare for a restaurant inspection.

Replace Old Equipment

One of the most common causes of health and safety infractions is old, faulty equipment. In addition to being inefficient, old equipment is more susceptible to accidents that could threaten the safety of your employees and your customers. Whether you need a new fryer, dishwasher, oven, refrigerator, or any other piece of kitchen equipment, replacing an old unit with a new, Energy Star certified one can help you cut costs and ensure that your kitchen is a safe workplace.

Use Janitorial Services

Another simple tip that can help you prepare for a restaurant inspection is regularly taking advantage of janitorial services. Even if your staff cleans the kitchen after use, the fact of the matter is that such cleanings are rarely thorough. Over time, the accumulation of dirt and grime can pose a serious health threat to your employees and your customers. Hiring a janitorial service to clean your kitchen is a great way to fully clean your restaurant. In addition to improving your restaurant’s appearance, janitorial services will also make your kitchen a safer, healthier place to work and cook food. In the event of a health inspection, a clean kitchen is paramount.

Don’t let your restaurant get caught off-guard by an inspection. By just taking a few simple steps, you can help ensure that your restaurant passes any inspections with flying colors and continues to provide your customers with the high-quality service and food they expect.
