Retail Food Establishments (RFE) in Cascade County are generally inspected 1 to 2 times per year. Low risk facilities (risk category 1 & 2) usually have one routine inspection, while high risk facilities (risk category 3 & 4) usually have two. Risk categories are based on the types of food served, the types of cooking processes, the clients served, and inspection history. For example, a convenience store that only sells commercially prepared packaged foods would be low risk, while a full-service restaurant that prepares raw animal foods using complex cooking processes would be high risk. A chart with descriptions of the risk categories can be found in the Fee Schedule.
