The Franklin County Health Department inspects restaurants and other food service establishments at least twice a year. Retail food establishments are inspected at least once a year. Food storage, sanitation, preparation, personnel, equipment facilities and other health conditions are checked. The inspections can be viewed on the health department’s website, www.fchd.org.
Each asterisk (*) indicates one critical violation. If an establishment has a critical violation, it fails the inspection and is inspected again with 10 days. The scores for the regular and follow-up inspections are shown for establishments that had critical violations.
A perfect score is 100. Points are subtracted if department guidelines are not met. Below is a breakdown of scores.
For those listed under food/service establishments there are two scores. The first is for the food service and the second is for the retail section of the establishment.
85-100 without a critical violation means the establishment is in compliance with departmental guidelines.
70-84 without a critical violation calls for another inspection within 30 days.
70 and below means the establishment is automatically served notice of the department’s intention to suspend its permit.
