What do you get when two award-winning companies combine their passions?
Something extraordinary!

Lithonia, GA (USA), October 09, 2012 -- What do you get when two award-
winning companies combine their passions? Something extraordinary! At a
time when some organizations are beginning to question should employees
be required to go through food safety training just like management; This
Is It BBQ and Seafood is ahead of the game with the implementation of
their employee level training program conducted by the award-winning food
safety firm, The Benson Mills Group ( http://www.BensonMillsGroup.com ).

This Is It BBQ and Seafood founded in 1983 is one of Atlanta’s most
emerging restaurant chains. The chain and its owners have been locally
and nationally recognized for their exceptional hospitality and
authentic, home-style recipes; which are never short on down-home
southern flavor. In what can be described as a "dynamic duo," The Benson
Mills Group ( http://www.BensonMillsGroup.com ) and This Is It came
together to embark on a food safety training and auditing program at its
six locations with a single, mutual goal in mind: serving safe and
delicious food. The program began with six-weeks of training; which had a
two-fold approach: classroom training that focused on theory and in-unit
training that focused on application. At the inception of the training
program an assessment was conducted to determine the employees' food
safety knowledge followed by in-depth food safety training. At the
conclusion of the training program a final assessment was conducted to
more thoroughly assess the retention of the information presented
throughout the entire program. Two-weeks after the final assessment an
unannounced training visit was conducted; which allowed Benson Mills
Group to engage employees in verbal articulation and demonstration of the
food safety knowledge gained through the training program. As an
incentive, an individual winner who exhibited the best display of
knowledge and demonstration was selected from each location and awarded a
$25 gift card.

The training was recognized by This Is It’s management as being very
detailed and informative. Management admired the fact that Benson Mills
Group ( http://www.BensonMillsGroup.com ) listened to and captured the
needs of their organization. What This Is It’s management valued most was
Benson Mills Group took their time and worked with the employees and
sometimes if needed they worked one-on-one them; the level of interaction
the employees received kept them engaged and excited about attending the
training sessions each week.

The next program phase for This Is It BBQ and Seafood is the auditing
phase. This phase involves several focus areas:
1) Acclimating employees to auditing; which is designed to reduce their
anxiety during inspections by local regulatory personnel;
2) Encouraging staff to develop a habit of doing things right the first
time
3) Conducting audits that are solution-driven; and
4) Reviewing and revising (if necessary) operating procedures to ensure
maximum effectiveness.
The Benson Mills Group is an award-winning food safety firm specializing
in food safety training, food safety auditing and commercial cleaning.
