Thanks to strict industry standards and regulations, it's fair to say that restaurants are amongst the most regularly cleaned public spaces around.
But we get it. From handwashing to surface sanitizing to deep cleaning, adhering to both Health Department requirements and CDC suggestions can seem daunting. Especially when you're dealing with multiple high-trafficked spaces that each require their own set of cleaning protocols.
That's why we're taking out the guesswork so you can get down to the dirty work. The Restaurant Cleaning Checklist, created in partnership with RestaurantSupply.com, includes a daily cleaning checklist, a weekly cleaning checklist, and a monthly cleaning checklist for each area of your establishment.
Use it digitally or print it out and hang it up in key areas of your restaurant, so your employees can easily reference. Modify the cleaning checklist to meet the needs of your business, and then distribute it and train your staff to follow it.
Your entire restaurant will remain spotless and your diligence will be rewarded, ensuring both the safety of your staff and patrons and the well-being of your bottom line.
