Food safety for convenience stores

Convenience stores have become a one-stop shopping destination for on-the-go consumers. Since fresh products and prepared food are a new domain for many convenience stores, how you deliver in these areas is critical to helping consumers choose your stores in an increasingly crowded competitive market. One slip in food safety could spell big trouble for your brand — are you sure that every one of your locations is adhering to acceptable standards and criteria?

With Steritech's food safety assessment program, you can ensure that your stores' processes are supporting food safety, and that products are served safely to your customers each and every time. Beginning with baseline audit criteria based on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Model Food Code and augmented by Steritech's nearly two decades of food safety expertise, our food safety assessments address key areas from receiving to holding and food preparation.

What's more, the Steritech Specialists who conduct these assessments are industry and brand experts, trained to help your employees learn and adopt food safety practices that may be new to them. With our 6:1 positive reinforcement model, your staff members understand that Steritech is a partner there to help them improve their performance.

COVID-19 safety assessments

Due to restrictions caused by the global pandemic, many convenience store brands have had to improvise and expand safety measures. Many people are now reluctant to shop in-store, so the key to bringing them in is to assure them that you are taking every precaution. Keeping your employees and customers healthy and safe while inside your stores should be your number one concern.

Steritech’s COVID-19 Protocol Check is designed to ensure that your unique safety protocols are being executed at all of your store locations. Common items for evaluation include: local health department guidance, social distancing measures, frequent touchpoints and many more.

Additionally, our Specialists will provide the coaching your employees need to protect themselves and others, as well as insight and guidance on industry best practices.

Operational excellence for convenience stores

Convenience stores are evolving to meet the needs of a wide array of on-the-go consumers: the busy mom who's fueling up and providing a snack for her kids, the construction worker on a work break, and the dash-and-dine millennial grabbing dinner between appointments. Each of these types of consumers has a different set of expectations and needs — and your stores need to meet them all.

With a Steritech operational excellence assessment program, you can elevate their shopping experiences by measuring and assessing areas such as cleanliness, displays, staff hospitality, availability of products, and more.

Steritech's operational assessment programs review and measure performance based on regulatory requirements, industry best practices, and your own brand standards to give you a complete picture of the state of your operations.

Workplace safety for convenience stores

There's nothing more important than the health and safety of your employees. Ensure that your stores are fostering a safe work environment with Steritech's Workplace Safety audit, a comprehensive review of the most common physical and environmental safety issues, as well as safety documentation and training practices.

Steritech's audit is based on requirements of the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration, as well as industry best practices and your own safety practices, to give you an objective assessment of conditions in your stores. Further, with Steritech's proprietary compliance management software, OnBrand360®, you'll have full closed-loop corrective action functionality and access to a range of reports that can satisfy all regulatory and insurance safety compliance needs. It's a smart system to help you provide the best possible workplace for your most valuable asset – your employees.

Construction & Remodel Assessments

Like many convenience stores, your business may be continually looking for an opportunity to open new locations. But making sure these projects are consistent and meet your brand’s expectations requires a great deal of time and money. Steritech’s Construction and Remodel Assessments can ensure brand consistency and lower your development team expenses by up to 70 percent. 

Steritech’s team of experts can perform on-site visits and verify that each of your building projects are aligned with brand standards through high-quality photographs, keeping costs in line and minimizing the need for travel.
