1. Unclean food contact surfaces or utensil. Build-up was observed on slicers, in food prep sinks, around beverage dispensers, syrup dispensers, and the shake machine and shake station items.
2. Outer opening not protected, which could lead to the entry of pests.
Unclean facility, including food splatter on walls, dirty floors in the kitchen, and food debris and splatter throughout the facility.
The restaurants were found to not be in good repair, sanitizing solutions were found to be at incorrect temperatures and concentrations, and a substance believe to be mold also was observed in freezer areas.
