Private Training for the Food Handler

Comply with new employee training rules. We can provide customized food handler training for your staff at your facility or ours.

We believe that the best training is specific to the employees tasks and we work with you to provide training specific to your staffs job tasks. Training usually takes 2 hours and can be followed up by a skills test if requested.

Why should you train your staff?

A few reasons why training your staff is good for your bottom line.

  • A foodborne illness outbreak can damage your reputation and cost thousands in attorney fees
  • Often improperly training staff will do things customers will consider "gross" or inappropriate and share on social media.
  • The average customer will tell 10 friends about a bad experience and 5 of those will tell their friends.
  • Only 8% of dissatisfied customers will complain. Leaving 92% of dissatisfied leaving your business with no opportunity to retain.
  • It is 6 times harder to gain a new customer than it is to keep a current one.
