New Restaurants/New Owners
Are you considering opening a restaurant and do not know where to begin? Let our consultants discuss any questions or concerns you have. Have one of our inspectors do an initial inspection of a perspective site you are considering for your restaurant location. Just because a facility operated as a restaurant once before does not mean that it can be re-opened “as is” under new ownership. Some establishments fail into what health departments call “grandfather clause”. The “grandfather clause” s non-existent once an establishment has a change of ownership. The new owner will have to upgrade the facility to the current health code regulations before operating.
Are you ready to open and need assistance?
Do not get delayed opening for business because your city inspector denies approval due to non-compliance and has up to 72 hours to conduct a re-check which will delay your opening day and mean loss of revenue. Let us help you be ready for projected date of opening without delay.
