HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - This week's lone low performer is a familiar offender for the Kitchen Cops report. A fast food sub restaurant is back again, too, but for good reasons.

The Jiffy Food Store on Highway 72 in Athens is on the Kitchen Cops low performers list again, this time scoring a 75. 

The inspector reports they discovered a worker's drink on the food prep table. Jiffy also lost points because no one on staff had their food safety course certification. 

The Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches in Decatur is one of six Kitchen Cops High Performers this week with no violations during their inspection. The workers here are the only ones who earned a perfect 100. In fact, this is the second straight time they've received a perfect score. Co-owner Matt Kritzer says they work to make tasty food to keep customers coming back, but adds the keeping their customers' trust by keeping it clean is just as important. 

"One of our top seven things on out to-do list, our 'Jimmy List,' is keeping the store hospital clean," Kritzer said. "If you were to ask me personally, when I go to a restaurant with my family, we want to eat at a clan restaurant. So it's, more than anything, do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

The Firehouse Subs on Carl T. Jones Drive in Huntsville is one of two Firehouse Subs on the high performers list. They scored a 99, as did the one in Decatur. 

Manning's Cafe in Russellville scored a 99 as well. 

Jen's Cafe in Florence scored a 98 and the Burger King in Tuscumbia also scored a 98. 

One re-inspection to mention is the Panda III Chinese Food Restaurant in Arab scored an 89, five point better than last time and enough to get off of the low performers list.
