Of the eight school cafeterias inspected this week, not all of them were flawless.
Aramark School Support Services, who manages all of LISD's kitchens, released this comment, "Our top priority is to ensure that the food served at LISD is of the highest quality within the safest environment possible. We continuously train our managers and employees on proper techniques in food handling and food safety procedures. The violations that were found during the inspection were corrected on site." The report shows that as well.
Now to this week's low performing restaurants.
Krispy Kreme at 4301 S. Loop 289 had five critical violations.
Management at Krispy Kreme told us, "We always strive to keep clean and do whatever we can to keep the customers happy." The report shows all violations were corrected at the time of the inspection.
Applebee's at 4025 S. Loop 289 is also on the low performing list with six violations.

Our primary focus is food safety. We accept no less. Each critical violation received on the health inspection was corrected immediately, on site, and approved by the health inspector. We have ensured through subsequent inspections that all systems are in place and functioning properly . Frequent operations assessments ensuring food quality are part of our culture.
