TALLAHASSEE The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation's Division of Hotels and Restaurants and the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association on Tuesday commended 67 restaurants across the state that made this week's list of food service establishments with no safety or sanitation violations within the past year.

The list represents the highest number of restaurants since the department began tracking the restaurants with no violations in November 2011, officials said adding 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.

More than 1,800 establishments have been recognized since 2011.

"Our safety and sanitation inspections are very thorough, so making the "No Violations" list is no easy feat," said DBPR Secretary Ken Lawson in a prepared statement. "We applaud the hard work of these business owners and operators and thank them for helping to maintain Florida's reputation of being a great place to live and visit."

Establishments on this week's list include 15 restaurants in Lee County, eight restaurants in Orange County, six restaurants in Dade County, five restaurants in Osceola County, four restaurants in Volusia County, three restaurants each in Alachua and Duval counties and two restaurants each in Brevard, Escambia, Jackson, Lake, Leon, Manatee and Sarasota counties as well as several others across the state. 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.

"We are thrilled so many Florida restaurants continue to prioritize the health and safety of their patrons," said Carol Dover, President and CEO of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association, also in a prepared statement. "This positive trend is a clear indication the Sunshine State is home to high caliber establishments and we encourage all Floridians to take advantage of their professionalism."

Although inspection reports only offer a snapshot of the conditions at the time, the Department is recognizing the results as outstanding. The agency regularly features zero-violation inspection results for establishments across the state.

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, prepared and served safely for the enjoyment of Floridians and our guests.

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.
