Food trucks enable countless chefs around the world to be able to earn a living while providing their local communities with delicious home cooked meals. Just the same as restaurant owners, food truck owners have to pass health, safety, and cleanliness standards in order to operate legally and in the best interest of their customers. In this month’s blog we break down a basic cleaning schedule food truck owners and operators should follow to ensure their kitchens are as clean, safe, and healthy as they can be.
Annual Cleaning Tasks
Once a year food truck owners should invest the time and resources necessary to address the cleanliness of certain components in their kitchen. These include cleaning the pilot lights on gas powered equipment, deep cleaning the hoods and fire system.
Monthly Cleaning Tasks
Bring in a company that provides soft washing or degreasing services for kitchen equipment. These experts can easily remove grease and dust while disinfecting and sanitizing the hood, range, floors, walls and more!
Daily Cleaning Tasks
After every single work day the closing crew should ensure that the kitchen is clean and ready for the next shift to begin the following day. This is especially important for preventing the invasion of all types of pests. Every evening the grills, fryers, floors, mats, countertops, dishes, and grease traps should be thoroughly cleaned.
Other daily cleaning practices should include emptying sanitizing buckets, placing all soiled laundry in a sealed bag, covering food bins in plastic wrap and cleaning expired food out of the fridges.
