HMSHost said it has signed on as a participant in the National Restaurant Association’s ServSafe Dining Commitment program aimed at reassuring diners of a safe environment to help bolster the restaurant and foodservice industry’s recovery.
The ServSafe Dining Commitment logo is a signal to diners that the restaurant is committed to training staff in safe food handling and establishing new guidelines for safe dining.
Since the pandemic began, HMSHost has been abiding by the National Restaurant Association COVID-19 Safe Operating Guidance, FDA Best Practices for Restaurants, the HMSHost Growth Plan and comprehensive COVID-19 Manager’s Guide to Associate Safety & Wellness, and the laws and guidelines of federal, state and local municipalities.
“HMSHost is leading and rewriting the script for exceptional travel dining solutions in this new environment and we’re excited to be working with the National Restaurant Association to provide a best-in-class experience,” said Joe Thornton, HMSHost executive vice president and chief operating officer. “With global vaccination now becoming a reality, we know people are starting to reengage on travel plans for 2021.”
Currently focused on growth, HMSHost is opening locations as travel begins to recover.
