TALLAHASSEE The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation's Division of Hotels and Restaurants released Wednesday this week's list of food service establishments with no safety or sanitation violations within the past year.
These specific businesses have shown a pattern of complying with sanitation and safety standards outlined in the Federal Food and Drug Administration's Food Code, officials said.
The agency regularly features zero-violation inspection results for establishments across the state.
This week's list includes one Cape Coral restaurant as well as five establishments in Escambia County; one restaurant in Duval County; three in Leon County; one each in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties and two in Orange County. During their latest inspections and within the past year, Division of Hotels and Restaurants inspectors did not find any sanitation or safety violations in these establishments. Although inspection reports only offer a snapshot of the conditions at the time, the Department is recognizing the results as outstanding.
The Cape Coral restaurant recognized is Anthony's 'Lil' Red Riding Food at 710 N.E. 25th Ave. It was last inspected on Dec. 30.
The Division of Hotels and Restaurants works to protect the health and safety of the public by providing the industry with quality inspections and fair regulation. The Division's main priority is to ensure that food is stored safely, prepared safely and served safely so Floridians and guests can enjoy it safely.
The Department of Business and Professional Regulation's mission is to license efficiently and regulate fairly. The Department licenses and regulates more than one million businesses and professionals ranging from hotels and restaurants, real estate agents and certified public accountants to veterinarians, contractors and cosmetologists.
