Nobody likes dirty kitchens, whether it be a dirty restaurant kitchen or watching what is perceived by some to be unhygenic food handling practices.
According to an October survey of over 1,000 adults regarding reasons to eat (or not eat) at a restaurant, it ends up that the primary reasons people choose not to eat at a restaurant all pertain to restaurant cleanliness.. or lack thereof.
Below the cut is the LIST OF REASONS PEOPLE CHOOSE NOT TO EAT AT RESTAURANTS:
- 86% – Unclean dishware
- 85% – Unpleasant odors
- 75% – Dirty restrooms
- 74% – Unclean tables
- 74% – Poor service
- 69% – Dirty floors
- 65% – Poor staff appearance
- 51% – Dirty glass and windows
That dirty restroom item is vital. Some have said that the CLEANLINESS OF THE RESTROOM REFLECTS THE CLEANLINESS OF THE KITCHEN.
Web Watch is a fan of publically-posted food health scores.
