What does a Restaurant Cleaning Checklist do?

Most successful restaurants have a  Weekly Prep Checklist that kitchen staff uses to prepare for the week. When you enter such kitchens, you will see busy prep cooks checking items off the list as they work. The purpose of such a prep checklist is to ensure the proper quantity of food and appropriate prep procedures are used. 

The approach that you choose in cleaning your restaurant can determine how effective the process will be. A commercial kitchen cleaning service will help you do most of the work but at a price. You will also need to make sure that the cleaning service covers all areas of your restaurant. If you want to do the cleaning yourself or with your staff, you need to have a cleaning schedule in place.

Successful cleaning of your restaurant should include:

  • Kitchen equipment
  • Grill Range
  • Cutting Boards
  • Flat Tops
  • Ice Machine
  • Cooking equipment
  • Grease Tops
  • Beverage dispensers

An important part of your cleaning efforts is safety. Make sure you have a prep area and have the necessary safety measures in place. Your kitchen cleaning checklist should also list items sequentially, such as cleaning the grill between cooking.
