Firehouse Subs owner Bryan Paquin said keeping the shop clean is part of the restaurant's culture. "We make sure we have a good, clean environment. And we make sure we have the hearty, heartfelt service we give every single day, in the true firemen tradition," explained Paquin.

At Firehouse Subs, employees focus on more than just creating hearty subs. "We take care of every square inch of the store, and make sure we clean it over and over again, and make sure we are very detailed," said Paquin.

Just a couple of doors down, one inspector dropped in at New Life Natural Foods. The DHEC inspector gave the deli an ‘A'  rating.

The report shows the deli that sits at the back of the natural food shop, scored a 95. The DHEC inspector found one critical violation; raw food products were stored over ready to eat foods. This was fixed on the spot.

Dale Hicks works at New Life and said everyone at the deli tries their best to keep the food fresh and the kitchen in order.

"Having the food in the proper place, having the food prepared correctly. We have recipes we use for everything, everyone prepares the food the same way," explained Hicks.

For those on the run, and are craving some chicken, Zaxby's in North Myrtle Beach also aced DHEC's inspection.

According to the report, the inspector gave Zaxby's a 96 after finding two violations. The inspector cited Zaxby's for not keeping a cleaning cloth in the right kind of sanitizing solution. The inspector also asked employees to clean the hand sink.
