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.
