The success of a restaurant depends on more than just the food. Customers want to enjoy high-quality food in a space that has character, great service and a thorough cleaning procedure. Every thorough cleaning process should be accompanied by a checklist. Having a restaurant cleaning checklist is the easiest way to assure customers, staff and the health department that your business is more than sanitary.

Also, don’t be afraid to hire help! A checklist will display what needs to get done, but sadly it won’t do the work for you. At Alsco, we’re here to help with everything from floorcare and laundry, to washroom supplies and linens, so you can get back to what matters most – your staff, customers, and of course, the food.
