Almost every commercial food preparation business out there will need a food protection certificate that shows they have passed all the sanitation regulations within the workplace. Restaurants are among the most common food businesses and without the proper food protection certificate and others will have a hard time staying open without getting fined. The safety of the kitchen and the food you prepare is absolutely essential in both maintaining customers and staying within the legal regulations of the state.
The last thing a restaurant needs is for a customer to get seriously sick from undercooked food. There is no doubt that this will hurt business because word of mouth spreads quickly and no one will want to come back. Take the time to show everyone that you have all the licenses you need along with a food protection certificate to let them know food safety is important at your place.
