"A Clean Kitchen Is A Happy Kitchen".. Is the wisest saying ever. Being in the restaurant industry, you literally have guests appetites, health, and lives in your hands, one false move or one item not being stored/prepared at the proper temperature could possibly send someone to the emergency room for food poisoning. Being clean starts with the beginning of the restaurant, your employees hygiene. If the employees you hire or co-workers lack the knowledge to do the "basics" (i.e. wash their hands after every meal, when using the restrooms, smoking or touching their hair or faces.) , then your establishment is headed off in the wrong direction. Being in a clean restaurant is like being invited over to a friend's house for dinner and they didn't clean before you arrived. Would you want to eat out of their kitchen? Would you inspect every piece of silverware or glass they handed to you simply because you didn't think it was sanitary? If your friend didn't clean their house or their kitchen, would you think they washed their hands as they were preparing your meal? Would you eat the meal out of obligation or would you make up an excuse and leave? If you think like this just from visiting a friend's home, then, your expectations should be much higher in regards to dining out.
Enjoy all of your CLEAN "Tasty Bites".
