Things aren’t so sunny at the Sunnyside Food Mart in Elkhart.
The Elkhart County Health Department closed the business, also known as Benham Food Mart, 1502 Benham Ave.
According to a press release, the food service license of the business owned by Jaswinder Kaur was suspended due to:
• Disregarding an order by a health officer to submit plans prior to remodeling
• Operating under unsanitary conditions
• Failing to correct critical violations by the end of the inspection
The health department said the business can only sell non-food items until it’s in compliance with state and local ordinances. That’s bad news for a “food mart.”
When I stopped by on Wednesday afternoon, Sept. 25, the business was closed for remodeling and construction, according to signs in the windows.
