According to the National Restaurant Association's annual survey*, the number one concern of guests is the appearance of the restroom. In an article published by Forbes titled, "The 10 Worst Germ Hot Spots," restroom door handles came in at number six. A full 18% of restroom users fail to wash their hands after using the facilities.** Perception is reality in many different aspects of business. When a customer walks into a restroom and finds a filthy environment, with overflowing trashcans and unkempt fixtures, their thoughts may turn to the type of emphasis the establishment places on sanitation. If the bathroom is neglected, what must the kitchen look like? The restroom is, after all, directly in the public's eye while the kitchen cannot be seen by anyone but the restaurant staff. The patron may wonder if their food is being prepared in a filthy mess of a kitchen, based on the appearance of the restrooms.
When restaurant customers think that their food is coming from a contaminated area, they are likely to share negative feedback with their friends, and decide to choose a different restaurant next time.
