Unsafe! Key Food
While Key Food has a really unique concept among grocery stores, it is not enough to keep them afloat when it comes to Customer Ratings. They are a cooperative of grocery stores that are independent of one another and have their headquarters in Staten Island. Their rating ended up being the lowest on our list, coming up at only 69 points and scoring a very sad “poor” in terms of how clean their stores are.
This is by far the lowest score, and even if your favorite store happens to be Key Food, you can’t deny that it’s less than stellar when it comes to cleanliness. This was even more evident when it came down to how they decided to handle the height of the pandemic. Not only did they not increase their disinfecting and cleaning protocol, but they also seemed to completely forget that they needed to be more careful.
During that time, the stores lost a lot of staff as they, too, were worried about how the store chose to handle the virus. If you’re from the New York area, you’ve probably seen their adverts looking to hire more staff for the subway.
Unfortunately, when it comes down to it, Key Food remains one of the most unsafe stores on our list. And if they care so little about something as serious as a pandemic, we wonder just how much attention they actually give to cleaning the stores.
