Data Collection by a questionnaire of 120 samples from a population of 168 between April –June,2013 was accomplished. The computer statistical analysis of t-test, F-test, and Pearson’s Correlation Coefficient was performed. The results showed that approximately 93 percent of food establishments could comply to food safety standard. The rest failed with various reasons such as wastewater treatment, waste disposal, improperly cleaning of equipments and utensils. Hypothesis testing found that there were statistical significant (p = 0.05) relationships of educational level of the operator and the type of food establishments with the compliance with food safety standards.
