6 Steps for Successful Spring Cleaning: Restaurant Edition
Spring has sprung! We all know what that means for Memphis: sunny skies, bustling parks, and outdoor eating! Thankfully, Memphian restaurants are poised to serve their communities better and safer than ever. Contactless payment, expanded outdoor seating, and curbside takeout are just some of the helpful, proactive solutions to today’s dining experience.
Tennessee announced that all adults will be eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine this month. Shelby county eased restrictions on restaurants and bars. Things are looking a lot brighter, and for that, we’re grateful.
Now is a great time to ensure your restaurant or establishment is shining too. It’s important to prepare, repair, and sanitize your business as Shelby County increases restaurant capacity and more of the population vaccinates. That’s why we’ve put together these six steps for a successful spring cleaning to get you ahead of the rush.
1. Curb Appeal
2. Deep clean the bathrooms. Enough said.
3. Clean the Kitchen Hood
4. Bring Darkness to Light
The bottom of salt and pepper shakers. Decorative items shelved and forgotten never to be turned. Exactly where you don’t want to look. Where you never want to look; the corner of your eye. Make the time for an old-fashioned, thorough spring cleaning. Your nooks and crannies won’t know what hit ‘em!
5. Spray Down the Dumpster
6. Schedule your ice machine cleaning
Remember how important it is to clean your kitchen hood? We prefer restaurants not engulfed in flames. I’m sure you do too. We’re also big fans of clean, safe ice machines. What happens to your ice machine if you don’t clean it? Will your restaurant burn down? Well, probably not. But there are a few impactful and avoidable risks a knowledgeable cleaning prevents:
- Serious foodborne illness
- Health code violations
- Loss of business
Remember: your ice machine is a mini food processing plant. Just as you clean dishes or tables, your ice machine needs consistent maintenance and cleaning to ensure the best customer experience from plate to bill. Be safe. Be healthy. Be smart. Schedule your ice machine cleaning today.
At Memphis Ice, we have a low-cost ice machine maintenance program for all of our renters. It gives you peace of mind so that you can focus on your business, while we ensure your ice machine is safe and sparkling.
