ServSafe® is the retail food industry standard in ANSI accredited food safety training programs & it meets the North Carolina state Qualified Person In Charge (PIC) requirement. Food service establishments will lose 2 points on health inspection without meeting the PIC requirement.

As an owner or manager, ServSafe® is critical to your company:

Having staff ServSafe® Certified not only gives your establishment two points on your health inspection, but it helps you ensure the safety of your product. The National Restaurant Association estimates that a single foodborne outbreak costs an establishment an average of $75,000 through a combination of:

  • Loss of customers and reputation
  • Negative media exposure
  • Lawsuits, legal fees, and increased insurance premiums
  • Staffing issues resulting from lowered morale, higher turnover and increased new hire training
As a food service employee, ServSafe® is critical to your career:

Being ServSafe® certified makes you more employable and desirable within the food retail industry.  ServSafe® is a five-year certificate that goes with you regardless of where you work. Employers often require ServSafe® certification, especially in a supervisory role.  It’s an investment that more than pays for itself!
