Restaurant Inspections, Olympia Pizza House

Georgia’s food safety regulations, which were updated with tighter restrictions last year, were a test for new restaurant owners recently.

Not soon after Terry and Lea Sanders re-opened Olympia Pizza House, which was originally started in the 1980s, they were faced with a host of food safety violations that landed Olympia an unsatisfactory 61 (U), according to the report.

Less than a month later, the Henry County restaurant at 5537 North Henry Blvd. rebounded with a 94 (A), the report showed.

While it was cited for basic items – such as improper hand-washing procedures, no paper towels at the hand sinks and employees wearing bracelets and watches in the kitchen – Olympia also was written up for temperature control issues, the report showed.

“There is no written procedure for the cooked pizzas being held for time as a public health control,” the inspector wrote.

This category of infractions heavily weighed down Olympia’s score, leading the owners to write up a prepping process for the dough as the inspector advised.

Terry Sanders explained that making pizza dough calls for it to sit out at room temperature for a certain time period.

In response to the other violations that included inconsistent storage of wiping cloths in sanitizing solution between uses, the owners said they implemented retraining for all of the employees, so proper food safety techniques will be followed at all times.

Lea Sanders also noted that they are serving some of the original recipes of Olympia, which she said many residents still consider a popular spot.
