After inspection, each establishment is given a sanitation grade card to post in a visible location to customers. Sanitation grade cards issued by an inspector include a numerical score and a classification of A, B, or C.
If an establishment prepares and serves Potentially Hazardous Foods, they are also required to have a food establishment permit and will also receive a separate grade card that is issued for their food establishment permit.
Establishments that serve only Non-Potentially Hazardous Foods (muffins, bagels, pastries, etc.) or commercially prepackaged Potentially Hazardous Foods do not require a food establishment permit.
