Spur takes pride in adhering to the strictest food and safety standards. For many years all our cooking has been done in full view of our customers in an atmosphere of transparency and openness.
Food quality and hygiene checks take place approximately 4 times per day in every store and once a month all stores have detailed independent food, hygiene and safety audits conducted on-site by corporate area managers. In addition to this, there are bi-monthly evening service and standards audits carried out. These standards are higher than the industry norm, because what matters are the health and safety of all our Spur People.
All kitchen and front of house staff are trained in the ‘clean as you go’ principle. Every day the opening checks deal with product food safety and hygiene prior to the store commencing trade. We have implemented both front of house restaurant and back of house kitchen CCTV cameras to ensure adherence to strict hygiene standards. All staff are thoroughly trained to the highest health and food safety standards. We make use of hair nets for staff and hand sanitizers are present is all sections. We also have permanent and experienced managers based in all kitchens including trained quality coordinators who check each meal before it is delivered to our customers.
All cleaning equipment is color coded and customized to clean specific areas. Portion control adds to our quality and hygiene efforts as products are individually wrapped and sealed. Each meal is prepared to order in front of numerous cameras and various other staff who depend on the Spur brand for their livelihood and income.
Over the years restaurants have been a favorite target for purveyors of urban legends or then as these legends are known as these days “fake news”. At Spur we take all complaints seriously, even those that seem outlandish on face value. This is done to ensure the safety of our clients against any possible threat, real or perceived.
In our ongoing efforts to improve our high standards even further, you the Spur People are our biggest ally. Please report any incident to us or ask us any question by contacting our friendly Spur Customer Care Team on 086 000 7787.
Spur Steak Ranches Kids Safety
At Spur Corporation we take the safety of our customers and children very seriously and provide our franchisees with the necessary tools, operational support and training to ensure safe and happy visits to our restaurants. Our focus has always been to provide a safe, welcoming and inviting restaurant where families can relax and enjoy themselves. Our franchisees undergo training to prioritize the safety and comfort of all customers and to handle numerous situations, including the serious threat or risk to children.
Play Canyon areas have play canyon attendants who receive ongoing training to provide the best possible care to ensure the enjoyment and safety of every child. Our franchisee’s approach is pre-emptive – attendants constantly monitor the situation in the Play Canyon and report any suspicious or irregular behaviour to management. All equipment and toys in the children’s area are safe and our franchisees take precautions to ensure accidents don’t happen.
Play Canyons are equipped with security cameras and in some instances this is broadcast as a live feed to various monitors in the restaurant so parents can keep an eye on their children while they play. While our franchisees make every effort to ensure the safety of all children, it is also the responsibility of the parent to look after their own children. Spur has always advised parents to accompany children to the toilet facilities, in fact, our staff have been instructed not to accompany any child to the restroom, this responsibility resides with the parent. The rules that govern our Play Canyons have been clearly placed on all Play Canyon entrances.
Because safety is such a high priority, we’re additionally updating and improving our policies and facilities, we are busy investigating technology to enhance our safety in the play areas.
Fidelity ADT Sensormatic kids tags
We've partnered with Fidelity ADT to create a safe zone for children through the use of Sensormatic technology where the Sensormatic pedestals are placed at the entrance/exit of the restaurant and magnetic pinless tags are attached to children’s clothes as they enter the play area. On entry into the play area each child’s clothing is tagged by a childminder for that area. The tags attach securely without damaging the child’s clothing and staff are trained on where to attach the tag so it does not hurt the child in the play area. The tag can only be removed at the pay desk once the family leaves with the child.
How it works
1. On entry into the play area at a Spur restaurant, each child’s clothing is tagged by a childminder for that area.
2. The tags attach securely without damaging the child’s clothing and staff are trained on where to attach the tag so it does not hurt the child in the play area.
3. The tag can only be removed at the pay desk once the family leaves with the child.
4. If a child attempts to leave the restaurant without his or her parents an alarm activates.
Kids 1st Solution
A wristband-app solution whereby the restaurant provides the wristband for the child and the parent downloads and registers on the app. The app will alert the parent when the child;
1. Enters the Play Area
2. Leaves the Play Area
3. Enters the bathroom area. or,
4. Steps outside the main door at the entrance
All app alerts are sent via the app as a notification.
For over 50 years, we have played a leading role in ensuring that South Africa’s children are happy and in a safe environment.
