MENU LABELING STANDARDS GO LIVE MAY 7

The FDA’s Menu Labeling Rule will become enforceable on May 7, 2018. This rule sets standards for the menus of food establishments with 20 or more locations or a franchisee part of a chain with 20 or more locations. In general, a restaurant must list the number of calories for each “standard” menu item next to the item on the menu or menu board, as well as keep additional nutrient facts on hand for any customer to request. We’ve created a quick resource page to help guide you through the process.

DENVER COMMUNITY AND PLANNING INVITES YOU TO A RESTAURANT INDUSTRY FOCUS GROUP

Our partners at the CDP would like to hear your candid input on opportunities for improving the city’s current process for permitting restaurant spaces. Their goals are to improve consistency, provide restaurant owners with a clear understanding of expectations and requirements before permit reviews begin, and identify areas for streamlining the permitting process. Join us Monday, May 14 to share your thoughts. Read more about the event.
