Sometimes, we just don’t know what goes on behind the closed kitchen doors. In Plano, people will have one less thing to worry about when they eat out.
One of the things that plague the mind of people who like to dine out is…no, not the price tag of food…but what lies behind the kitchen. If you are a regular at a restaurant, wouldn’t you like to know that the business practices good hygiene behind the closed doors of the kitchen? Beyond what is presented to you on the table after you have ordered is your health.
Plano is the first city in the United States to implement a QR Code certificate which allows smart phone users to access detailed information about the kitchen’s level of cleanliness. The certificate is, of course, is issued after the authorities have performed detailed tests on the kitchen, staff and graded them accordingly. Patrons who walk in can check the certificate out with a simple scan of the smart phone.
This might sound like such a grand idea but let’s think about it a little further. Basically, you can conclude that if the restaurant owner dares to display the certificate at a publicly accessible place, then it is safe to say that the restaurant’s got good grades and there is really no need to scan the code. You can scan the QR Code to find out the details like how clean it was, were the appliances used safe and clean, did the staff observe proper conduct, etc.
The question is…would you, as a restaurant or bar owner, display the certificate with the QR Code on it if you received anything beyond an A? If you have earned a C grade, would you rather place it in a prominent place or somewhere completely obscure, hoping that no one actually notices or asks to see the certificate?
Hence, the conclusion is…if you see the certificate being displayed, then chances are, the restaurant’s good to go. If you can’t find the certificate, the restaurant’s got into trouble at some point in time or the grades aren’t so great.
Anyway, here’s the news about QR Code being printed for more than a thousand and four hundred restaurants, bars and steakhouses in Plano.
Have a good weekend, folks.
