What factors do people consider while picking a new restaurant? There have been multiple surveys on this topic and most of them have put the quality and the variety of the food as the No 1 factor. Customer service comes a very close second. But with the perils of Covid still fresh in our minds, it is not surprising that the food service industry is gearing up for the coming year with cleanliness and safety factors at the top of the list to attract and retain customers.
So what can you do to keep your restaurant inviting and popular this new year? Here are a few tips to begin with:
1. Outsource non-core activities
Outsourcing cleaning and disinfection of your restaurant to a commercial cleaning company could be the single most important customer retention activity you may have to do this year. When you hire an expert cleaning company such as Kleen360 https://kleen-360.com/ with over 2 decades of experience in restaurant cleaning, the man-hours they can save your employees will show up as savings in your balance sheet very soon.
2. Never make the mistake of ‘doing it all yourself’
Commercial kitchens and food storage and preparation areas that handle a huge variety of dry and wet ingredients including meat, sea food, vegetable and dairy products can harbor more germs than you can count. These areas will require specialized cleaning materials as well as proven techniques for maximum efficiency.

3. Clean regularly on a daily basis
Your customers could make up their mind about the quality of your establishment even before entering your dining halls. How does your exterior look? Is the glass washed and sparkling? Are the floors and ceiling clean and neat? Are there any signs of trash in the premises?
Making a good first impression every single time would require a level of ‘redefined clean’, possible only with Active Custodial Maintenance services https://kleen-360.com/services/custodial-maintenance/ enabled by professional cleaning crews such as those available with Kleen360.
