Food Safety

Food safety is one of the most important aspects of owning a food establishment. Customers want to know that their food is clean and safe, and health inspectors are always on the lookout for establishments that don’t put food safety first. ServSafe certification courses can teach you everything you need to know about keeping your customers safe, from creating safe food handling procedures to proper sanitation methods.

Cleaning and Sanitizing

Many food establishments are at risk of failing because they do not have proper cleaning and sanitization procedures. These methods help keep your restaurant clean, but more importantly, prevent harmful bacteria from growing on surfaces that come into contact with the food you serve.
