1. Check the refrigerator temperature
Always keep food stored at the right temperature to avoid spoilage. Check your thermometer regularly to ensure that it’s still accurate.
2. Clean up spills and table stains
Clean the tables after each customer. The next set of customers won’t appreciate it if they see greasy food stains or water marks on their tablecloth. Also, avoid using a lot of detergent when you wash these things because a small amount is all you need to keep them clean.
3. Clean the kitchen
Make sure you’re well-stocked with cleaning equipment such as mops, brooms and buckets to keep your kitchen sanitized.
4. Wash the bathroom
It's a good idea to have a checklist that tells you which fixtures and surfaces in the bathroom need to be cleaned every day. Make sure you clean the bathroom each time it’s in use, or if something needs rapid attention.
5. Set cleanliness standards for your employees
Before you start working with your cleaning checklist, ask your staff how they usually clean things. If they say it’s too hard to do things properly, you can consider setting standards for them.
