Tough Inspector Consulting SERVICES

$35 Inital Diagnostic Consultation

A TIC representative will come onsite and meet with you to discuss your concerns and/or problems. We will conduct a brief walk-thru to analyze the condition of your establishment, propose a corrective plan of action, and finalize a schedule and contract for any inspections necessitated. Please contact us to schedule your consultation.

We offer a variety of Inspections

TIC offers initial restaurant inspections for new restaurant owners who have been released by code enforcement but have not had their 1st routine local health inspection. Follow-up restaurant inspections are conducted when a restaurant has received a failing grade from their local health department and needs to correct specific violations.TIC conducts complaint inspections when customers report foodborne illnesses or other food safety/food sanitation concerns. TFER-based restaurant inspections are based upon critical elements identified by the state of Texas, known as "Texas Food Establishment Rules" and are used by a majority of local Texas health departments. The 55 Pt restaurant Inspection is TIC's most comprehensive inspection and focuses on every aspect of a restaurant's food service operation, from proper storage of food products, food temperatures for cooked and uncooked product, assessment of equipment/utensil condition, water systems, garbage disposal, pest control and structural componets (walls, floors, ceilings, lighting and ventilation.), etc. *Foster care/Adoptive home inspections are now offered for the low price of $65, dependent on residence location.

During any inspection a person of your choice (manager/owner) is invited to accompany the inspector through the inspection. The TIC inspector will provide a complete written review and explanation of findings and offer realistic corrective actions and proactive suggestions. In instances of severe food safety violations, photographic images will be provided. If you know what you need, feel free to schedule your 1st comprehensive inspection.
