This blog goes for any Food services!

Awhile this still kind of fresh in my head, okay there a few things that bug me and I will admit I didn’t do few of these things myself when I was younger, awhile working in food services, okay maybe a couple, I still don’t follow, that isn’t real bad.

  • Never block anything like fire doors, sinks, freezers and refrigerators.
  • Always keep freezers and refrigerators doors close when they not in use.
  • Clean out freezers and refrigerators, and food storages, that means sweeping, mopping, whipping down walls if needed, and whipping down selves before a food truck comes. This should be done before the food truck is expected to come, even if the food truck is late, doesn’t mean that you should slack off on it, if it’s late.
  • Always keep things clean that are being use the most.
  • Never use hand sinks for anything else, like dumping liquids out, washing things out, they only for washing hands only.
  • Make sure to wash things with bleach with any thing you though, like door handles, any handles like for dishwashers, mop handles, bloom handles, and any thing you put your hands on. This will help with infections and people getting sick.
  • Always keep things off the floor and have a storage for cleaning supplies, because there are some that are harmful, so always read the back of them and warnings on what they say if anything tend to happen.
  • Always ware safety goggles and rubber groves when using any harmful chemicals and maybe a mask if needed.
  • Always put a label on any bottle with a chemical in it with the right name of the chemical.
  • Never leave food that is going to be use in a dish room area or leave frozen food out.

Okay that what’s been bugging me.


Empire Michigan is a great place to be, if you live there, or did, or travel to Empire?

Okay I use to live out in Empire 4 years ago and use to work at Joe’s Friendly Travern as a Dishwasher\Kitchen Prep about 13 years, mostly in the summer, when it’s the busiest. Sadly I never met Joe because he died year’s ago, but theirs people who ask about Joe, but his picture is hanging behind the bar above the broken mirror that no one knows how it got broken, besides me a little from my grandma.

The mirror got broken from a guy who was trying to rob it, I think, before it became Joe’s Friendly Travern, when my grandma was about 13, I think, help cleaning and their was a conflict between the owner and the robber, and something hit the mirror, it could have been a bottle from the robber, or a bully club stick from the owner, that hit the mirror on the bottom left corner. The mirror is custom-made, so they never fix it, but at the time the owner maybe didn’t have the money to fix it, I always thought, so after that they never did anything with the mirror and kept it as is.

The owner now, also own The Village Inn with Gemma’s on the other side of it, so make sure to stop at those places, if you are travelling there or just passing by, but Gemma’s only open during the summer mostly, but it does open during May.

Also Lake Michigan is a most hangout spot at the beach with South Bar Lake, and ‘North Bar Lake’ that is a part of the National Park that is a most part of your travels, because there are The Sand Dunes and other places of the National Park that I can’t think of the name’s of, but theirs Google, if you want to search about Empire Michigan and the National Park of Michigan.
