Food establishments that sell or serve food to the public must get a permit and be inspected by the Summit County Health Department. These establishments include restaurants, coffee shops delis, grocery stores, school kitchens, temporary events where food is sold and more.
The purpose of the inspection is to assure that the food is being handled properly from preparation through serving. Inspectors observe kitchen workers’ food handling practices, inspect refrigerators and storage areas, take food temperatures, assure correct use of sanitizers and handwashing practices. Any problem found is written up on an inspection report, and the manager is taught the correct procedure or method immediately.
To report a potential violation in food safety, call 435-333-1511 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
