FER Virtual NEXT: Safety in Focus

Sanitation and food safety no longer are just back-of-house issues. For operators, showing that they're implementing best practices amid COVID-19–and beyond–is critical to driving customer traffic. It's not enough to just do it, operators also must show their work. In fact, Datassential finds that half of diners say a clean and sanitary restaurant is more important than other attributes, including value and a convenient location.

For operators carefully measuring every expenditure, new technology or energy-efficient features must do more than dazzle. The return on investment is more important as ever. Upgrades that provide labor savings, cut utility bills or reduce operating costs in other ways are often a wise investment, even in tough times.
