The look and cleanliness of a restaurant’s front entrance are more important than ever. People judge from the outside, especially if they don’t know anything about your restaurant and are just looking for a place to eat. While nothing matters more than the quality and taste of the food you cook, the presentation and upkeep of your building are important factors for getting guests flowing in and keeping them coming back.
Fires are a huge threat to restaurants with the potential to cause thousands of dollars of loss in damages and even loss-of-life. It’s very important that, as a restaurant manager or owner/operator, you know how to prevent fires from occurring in your establishment. With different types of fires stemming from various sources, it’s best to keep an eye on all potential areas of danger to ensure fire risks are kept to a minimum.
Keeping up with when to clean the equipment in your restaurant can be overwhelming for new employees or cleaning contractors.

Hotel kitchen exhaust systems are complicated to clean, especially with the added fire risks and hundreds of people staying right above the kitchen.
