About ARF

Our Mission

ARF Food Safety Consulting Group provides individually tailored specialized food safety consulting services for organizations dedicated to improving food safety controls, maintaining regulatory compliance, and protecting their brand identity. We also offer professionals in the food service industry a chance to obtain certifications in Servsafe Manager and Food Handler Training by way of our interactive and informative courses.  ServSafe is the most widely accepted food safety program among state, local and federal health departments. ServSafe Sanitation Certification Classes offered by the ARF Food Safety Consulting Group are approved by the Illinois Department of Health and all municipalities, including the City of Chicago, and qualify successful students for both state and local certification. We are committed to providing excellent assistance to anyone needing certification and food safety counseling from business owners to restaurant employees.

I believe that ARF clearly offers a superior inspectional service, hands on employee education, regulatory experience and on-site problem solving.
