A popular coffee shop in Rochester has been temporarily closed by the Monroe County Health Dept. after being issued an order on Feb. 9, citing health code violations related to food from an “unapproved source,” spoiled, and adulterated on-premises. Other violations include issues such as food not being protected from potential sources of contamination, and inadequate measures to control rodents and insects.
Spot Coffee posted a sign on its door over the weekend indicating that it was closed temporarily due to the health department’s order. The company’s District Operations Manager, Peter Kervin, released a statement stating that they take the recent reports very seriously and took immediate action upon learning of the complaints and inspection findings. Spot is currently working to rectify the situation and ensure measures are taken to prevent any recurrence of the violations while fully cooperating with the county health department. Thorough cleaning and sanitation procedures are being implemented, along with pest control services. Kervin is committed to ensuring that Spot Rochester meets and exceeds all health and safety standards, appreciating the community’s understanding and patience as they work to resolve this matter promptly. There was no immediate word on when Spot will reopen.
