Consistency is an important consideration when running a franchise in order to maintain the proper brand and reputation. Many details go into acheiving consistency, but a lot of people tend to forget about the elements of consistency behind-the-scenes when it comes to auditing.
Auditing for food businesses ensures that poor and unsafe operations are identified and put to an end so they cannot harm the customers or the staff. Performing a self-audit provides the additional benefit of preventing improper operations from tainting the brand’s reputation. If one location is determined to have unfit operations, then the entire franchise is labelled such as well. This is why it is important to protect your franchise and ensure the operations at each location are fool proof.
Conducting corporate field-audits under one consistent standard and software will help maintain and monitor food safety operations that can be implemented across the franchise. There are a couple of key aspects to consider when conducting an audit, like brand standard, cleanliness, maintenance, food safety and etc which all fall under having a consistent guideline.
