The Fishers Health Department has launched a Retail Food Inspection Grading System for Fishers restaurants. As the second municipality in the state to implement this protocol, the system showcases the Fishers Health Department’s commitment to prioritizing the health and safety of its residents. 
The system was approved by Fishers City Council in November 2022 and was put into effect during 2023 food inspections. As a result of the inspection, restaurants receive a letter grade based on a 100-point scale. Grades are available to the public through an interactive dashboard at Beginning in September, grades will also be posted on the exterior doors of all Fishers restaurants. Labels are required to be displayed by September 30, 2023.

“Although a popular program in cities around the United States, this is not something that Indiana residents are used to seeing as they enter their favorite restaurant,” said Monica Heltz, Fishers Health Department Director. “We hope to lead the charge in improving food safety standards in Central Indiana. Food grades are an evidenced-based strategy to achieve this aim. The health and safety of our residents is our top priority, and we are dedicated to partnering with our local restaurants to ensure they are successful under this new model.”

New grades will be distributed each year during annual inspections. To learn more and view the online dashboard, visit
