    businesses have to both be repeat offenders AND refuse to comply in order to get shut down.  They could massively fail a single inspection as well.

      in my experience (in MN and NY) if an inspector doesn't like what s/he sees, they can give you a list of things that need to be corrected before they return for a followup inspection, with the expectation that if you don't comply, they'll close you down.  Most businesses will scramble to comply. Some won't.

        will turn up some violations, often just minor ones.  You take corrective actions, pass a follow up inspection and that's about it.

        In order to open any kind of food operation, you need to pass inspections.  It's not like an operator has any excuse for ignorance.
