In the heart of Rochester, a beloved coffee shop, Spot Coffee, has been forced to close its doors following an order from the Monroe County Health Dept. The shutdown occurred on Feb. 9 and all food operations were ordered to cease in connection with the NY State Sanitary Code. According to a sign on the door, the state health department listed several health code violations including one called a “critical violation” related to food from an “unapproved source, spoiled, adulterated on premises.” Other violations related to issues such as food not being protected from potential sources of contamination and not having effective measures to control rodents and insects from entering the restaurant.
Spot Coffee is taking this matter very seriously and has immediately taken action to rectify the situation. The company is cooperating with the county health department and implementing thorough cleaning and sanitation procedures as well as working with pest control services. They are committed to ensuring that Spot Rochester meets and exceeds all health and safety standards.
Peter Kervin, District Operations Manager for Spot Coffee, provided a statement indicating that they understand the community’s patience as they work to resolve this matter. There was no immediate word on when Spot will reopen but customers are encouraged to visit their other locations while they wait for updates.
