Save Your Customers Business with Bioaugmentation

Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) in the food service industry is inevitable. However, helping your customers to be proactive vs. reactive can be the difference between a thriving business or no business at all. Between health code violations from drain back-ups, emergency pump-out downtime and poor customer satisfaction ratings, it’s essential to provide your customers with an effective and reliable FOG solution.

Clogged Drains, Closed Doors

Pumping-out FOG from drains or pipes can cause your food service customers to close their doors for 2-5 days. This means a significant loss in income for their business.

Flies Shoo Away Business

Clogged drains may attract flies to a business, but it doesn’t attract customers. The conditions within a clogged drain meet all the requirements for pesky flies. Once making their way to the problem area, flies can transport unwanted bacteria to other areas of the kitchen.

Little Trust Leads to Few Customers

Customers notice when businesses unexpectedly close their doors. They can also both see and smell big cleaning trucks pumping out FOG in the back-parking lot during the middle of lunch hour. Public information on FOG build-up, foul odors, grease spills or health code violations understandably causes customers to question the health standards of a business. When it comes to food service, reliable sanitation practices can make or break success.
