GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - A Gwinnett County restaurant has failed its inspection for the second time this year.

Channel 2's Carol Sbarge went to the Flying Biscuit Cafe on Peachtree Parkway to try and find out what that location is doing about the problems.

Flying Biscuit Café is well-known in metro Atlanta and especially popular for breakfast, so it was quite a shock to customers who go to the one on Peachtree Parkway to learn that location got a 40 on its Sept. 5 inspection.

"That's bad. That's horrifying," said Victoria Griffin.

"I wouldn't have thought it would have gotten such a low score on its inspection. It's really surprising," added Damon Griffin.

Some violations included cooked eggs were not protected against contamination by raw egg, multiple foods have been held in use past the refrigerated shelf life, kitchen employee handled trash then continued working with the same gloves and several foods not being maintained at the proper temperature inside the cooler drawer.

This is not the first failing inspection score this Flying Biscuit on Peachtree Parkway has gotten this year. In January, the business got a 65, which is an unsatisfactory score.

The manager of the Peachtree Parkway location didn't allow Channel 2 Action News into the restaurant. The brand leader for Flying Biscuit Café sent the following statement:

"The low inspection score has been brought to our attention and our operations teams is working diligently to ensure that these violations are resolved and that we (are) taking the necessary steps to ensure we are in compliance in the future. Our re-inspection will take place in just a few days."

The Flying Biscuit Café on Peachtree Parkway will be re-inspected this month.
