    In 4 1/2 years with me and various restaurants --- no surprise inspections ever happened either. We always knew well in advance and needless to say, we cleaned up the kitchen, back and front lines, changed the fry oil, brushed all the grunge from behind the flat-top and broiler and scrubbed & hosed down the tile floor until we no longer slid on the grease and cleaned out the walk-ins. Never know what you'll find in walk-in's... but that's another story.

    Worked in food service from my mid teens up till my early twenties.

    Yea walks in, yikes they can be disgusting.
    It didn't really effect the food, those gaskets get nasty quick though.

    I was pretty anal about keeping my work area clean in most places.
    The dishes though, good thing the ones I used ran through an oven.
    Bastard dish washers loved to half ass it.

    Nothing compared to a family of mice who were living in a pan of sliced eggplant. The dead giveaway was the pile of dried grass. The mice apparently got in through the insulation behind one of the light fixtures which was dented. They apparently jumped on the top shelf, scurried down into the back where the pan was pushed in the corner. Found a few deal little mice in a few other pans too. No telling how long those little guys were in there. Which is why when I go out to eat I tend to eat deep fried food - it might kill me with heart failure, but at least I won't get tape worms or some other disease ... and we were pretty good about keeping clean. We weren't exceptional... but we were very aware of cross contamination, raw meats and never left things out... they always went in the walk-in.... with the mice.

    blech.

    The amount of stuff the public doesn't know about food service, they'd all freak out.

    One of the other franchise restaurants in our group closed for about a month to "remodel."
    The true story was that, the walls were infested with roaches and had to be stripped down, cleaned and redone.
    It was nasty.

    Undoubtedly you weren't as pretty.

    The intent of the law is to ensure that people are not sold potentially contaminated food by monitoring those who sell the food and ensuring they are following health codes. I dont care if shes 9 or 90, she is selling something that will be consumed by the public and as such she needs to do so in such a way that follows health codes.

    I'm not opposed to having a sort of starter business license with an extremely low cost
    for cases like this but I absolutely do not support the unregulated sale of items of consumption to the general public. We dont let adults get away with it, we shouldn't let kids get away with it because they're kids.
    A piece of paper doesn't ensure safety, only revenue for the city. Next?
