Mattison’s Restaurants Achieve Top Sanitation and Safety Award from the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association

On October 1, 2020, all three Mattison’s Restaurants were awarded the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association (FRLA) Seal of Commitment – a promise that our establishments achieved enhanced safety and sanitation standards as designated by FRLA to ensure the safety of guests and employees. In a post COVID-19 atmosphere, our goal is that guests have confidence that our business is sanitary and safe, and staff are well trained when they see an FRLA Seal of Commitment on the door.

According to Chef Paul Mattison, Executive Chef and Owner of Mattison’s Restaurants and Catering Company, “Throughout the last few months our standard has always been to go above and beyond to ensure the safety of our guests and staff. We appreciate the effort by the FRLA to recognize us and other restaurants that have implemented and are maintaining proper protocols during these unprecedented times. The Seal of Commitment will give our guests the confidence to dine with us knowing they will be safe.”

“FRLA is proud to designate Mattison’s City Grille, Mattison’s Riverwalk Grille and Mattison’s Forty-One with our Seal of Commitment for their commitment to sanitation excellence,” said Carol Dover, President and CEO of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association. Through this achievement, they are demonstrating their serious pledge to ensure the safety and health of their employees and guests, and we commend them.”

For Mattison’s to earn the Seal of Commitment, we have dedicated time and invested resources to ensure our establishment, staff, and guests remain safe and healthy while patronizing our business. Our establishment has completed management, food safety, and COVID-19 safety and sanitation trainings. We have also developed and maintained standard operating procedures with intensive safety and sanitation standards.
