Does anyone have statistics on this? I've been googling until my fingers are numb with no solid numbers. I would like to present a statistic at my meeting next week. If anyone has any info, I would owe you BIG TIME!

Even if you find stats on health dept violations, I doubt they will be detailed enough to break out violations for restaurants (which are likely the majority of violations) versus home-based businesses. You might have to start calling county health depts in different CFL states to build up your data set.

Our HD lists them on their site. But you would have to know the names of the businesses. And this is only one county.

I was under the impression that some areas were not subject to inspections. This would mean that only complaints would be registered vs. surprise inspections. So if you are trying to get a percentage of restaurant vs. CFL, it would be considerably wrong with the stats that are recorded.
