Training is the key to consistency in any restaurant. Upon completion of our comprehensive business assessment, our team will work with the operator, management and staff to help build a team environment and ensure the plan we create is in tune with the culture of the restaurant. The result is increased profitability through thoroughly executed plans, adherence to systems, increased check averages and customer flow.In conjunction with CompuWorks, a premiere training company in the Boston area, Food Service Advisor is providing two ways to receive your certification.
You can also make very good use of these vBooks on Food Safety from the HACCP Consulting Group. These are excellent publications on Allergen Awareness and an introduction to HACCP and the benefits of using their process for food safety.
