Hilliard Pizza Hut cited for repeated critical violations

Up to Code

The health department warns a popular pizza franchise to clean up its act.

We’re rolling out a new element to our weekly Up To Code Report. Restaurants that consistently have superior inspections will receive the NBC 4 Up To Code Award.

Before we disclose the first recipient of the award, NBC 4 Investigator Tom Sussi explains why the Franklin County Public Health Department gave a Warning Letter to Pizza Hut, 4504 Cemetery Rd., Hilliard.

Inspectors said the restaurant has had repeat uncorrected violations, and failed to maintain sanitary conditions.

  • Inspectors noted that bread-stick dipping sauce was not date-marked
  • And the entire facility and all of the equipment needs a thorough, detailed cleaning.

The restaurant will soon have a follow-up inspection. If the violations haven’t been corrected, it’s possible the business will face an administrative hearing with the health department.

Now, the first recipient of the NBC 4 Up To Code Award. It goes to Tammy’s Pizza, 5913 Hoover Rd., Grove City. Three straight inspections without a single critical violation.

Mark and Christine Youngs bought Tammy’s Pizza in 2004, and three years later, opened a second location.
