Food Safety: Creating a Culture of Clean for Senior Living Dining Staff

Every experience your residents have inside your restaurant can determine the success of your community. From the stickiness of your tables to whether your bathrooms are well stocked and clean it all starts with your employees. With high turnover rates in the food service industry, it can be difficult to maintain a proper level of training and motivation with employees, which can lead to improper cleaning procedures and potential food safety issues. P&G Professional understands the unique challenges faced by restaurant managers and  Argentum Gold member P&G Professional understands the unique responsibilities faced by senior living communities and the importance of providing the right level of motivation and training for employees to ensure that your residents receive the best service and your communities avoid potential food-borne problems.
