Based on the findings of BPLO, the 6789 CWJC Kitchenette was violating sanitation standards and operating without a valid permit.

Around 2 p.m., BPLO inspectors padlocked Units 4, 5 & 6 located at Fernando corner J. Victor St. in Barangay Pio del Pilar, Makati City.

The food delivery business was reportedly catering to clients in various offices in the city.

Since January 2019, the local government closed 55 errant businesses for violating the city’s Revenue Code, the Sanitation Code of the Philippines, and other ordinances and national laws.

The continuing crackdown has been ordered by Mayor Abigail Binay to “restore order and discipline in Makati” and protect the interest of legitimate businesses.

She reminded business owners to strictly comply to all the city ordinances, and requirements.
