Annual Taste Event to Highlight East Aurora’s Vibrant Culinary Scene

The sixth annual Taste of East Aurora, featuring restaurants and food-related businesses with ties to the Greater East Aurora community, returns from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9, on historic Main Street, from Olean Road to Riley Street.

“The event will take place rain or shine and is always a popular destination for guests who want to experience East Aurora’s expanding culinary scene,” said Gary Grote, executive director of the Greater East Aurora Chamber of Commerce. “While we are well-known locally and nationally as an arts community, our food-related businesses are running a close second in terms of popularity!”  

Restaurant Owners Turn to Sure Step to Keep Employees on Their Feet

Restaurant Owners Turn to Sure Step to Keep Employees on Their Feet

As you might imagine, the kitchen at your favorite local restaurant is a very busy, fast-paced environment. In addition to all the food preparation and cooking taking place behind the scenes, there’s a tremendous amount of foot traffic — everyone from chefs to dishwashers and house managers to the waitstaff.

Needless to say, on any given day a restaurant kitchen floor also sees its share of spills and splashes. Food, beverages, water and even cooking oil can end up underneath the feet of restaurant employees at any point in time, increasing the likelihood of slips, falls and injuries to staff.

As a result, slips, trips and falls due to wet and slippery conditions are among the greatest kitchen concerns. For restaurant owners, it’s an ongoing battle to keep workers healthy and safe.
