Looking for ServSafe classes in Tucson?

Tucson Food Safety is a new local business whose services include ServSafe® Manager classes and testing. It helps food businesses meet the requirement set by the Pima County Health Department of having a certified Food Safety Manager on site.

Tucson Food Safety was started by Abby Rosen and Holly Relles, a cook and a baker, who have been working in commercial kitchens for a combined total of more than 20 years. Outside of Tucson Food Safety, Abby oversees the operations of a 2900 square foot kitchen that produces 1500 meals a day to a health sensitive customer base, where food safety is at the center of every decision. As part of that role she teaches ServSafe® Manager to culinary students and has more than 1000 hours of instruction experience. Abby and Holly both recognize the barriers to getting a ServSafe® Manager certification faced by many food services workers and decided that they could offer a more approachable, engaging course that would not only assist in teaching the knowledge to pass the exam but give real-life techniques to increase food safety back at the kitchen.

The services that Tucson Food Safety offers are:  ServSafe Manager instruction and exam, private group classes, individual online testing with same-day results with multiple language options.

Owners Abby and Holly acknowledge that many food services workers face the struggles of substance abuse. Tucson Food Safety will donate 5% of their annual profits to a non-profit that serves those who are on their path to sobriety.
