Survey shows food safety perceptions of fast casual restaurants

October 21, 2016

A recent survey of attitudes toward food safety in so-called fast casual restaurants found a majority of respondents prefer to see their food prepared in front of them by workers wearing gloves, would complain if they saw unsanitary behavior or conditions, and might return under certain circumstances to a restaurant that had faced a foodborne illness.

Fast casual restaurants are defined as those that do not offer full table service but promise higher-quality food with fewer frozen or processed ingredients than fast food restaurants. Some national chains in this category are Chipotle, Panera, Qdoba
