Webinar: IAAPA's New Partnership with ServSafe: What it means for Your Facility
1 p.m. ET
In partnership with the National Restaurant Association and ServSafe, IAAPA members now save 20% on ServSafe products designed to protect and grow the hospitality, hotel, restaurant, and food service industry. Join our conversation with Bernie Campbell, IAAPA’s current Food and Beverage Committee Chair, and Terry Riddle, past Chair, as they discuss our new partnership and explain how to take advantage of this valuable member benefit. Also hear from Guy Weaver, Channel V.P. of Sales for the National Restaurant Association, to learn more about ServSafe’s suite of training products.
ServSafe is the preeminent source of training for the Food Service Industry. These certification programs are not only accepted by most U.S. state and local authorities, but also required by some. When on display, their certification programs convey a level of expectation and comfort for food patrons, and they can be assured that the level of training in the operation meets a superior standard.
Most recently, ServSafe became a key link in allowing food service venues to resume operations by working with the FDA and CDC to provide free COVID training and re-opening guidance. This is just one example of the type of high-level collaboration and information pipeline that we must have in our industry to keep our patrons safe.
A question and answer session will follow the webinar.
