With more than 450 different Santa Barbara restaurants to choose from, you’ll find the perfect spot to enjoy, from five-star dining to mom-and-pop cafés to the burger joint voted Best Tasting in the United States.
Santa Barbara is a world class foodie town where restaurants can thrive, and you are a part of that restaurant scene. You have struggled and worked hard for years to get where you are today. But have you thought about the risks?
• What will happen to your business if an employee uses improper food handling or cleaning practices after handling raw meats, causing a salmonella outbreak?
• What if your kitchen and/or building is destroyed by a grease fire that gets out of control?
Maybe you don’t like to think about the risks, but accidents can happen, even to the best and most well run restaurants.
