Permit Management Systems
We make compliance simple for your management staff.
The Tennessee Alcohol Beverage Commission requires that restaurant
management maintain a copy of TABC server permits for every
server, bartender, or manager at your establishment. They
must be available for inspection at any time a TABC agent
If you do not have a permit on every employee, the TABC will
assess fines beginning at $150 per person, and progressing
to a maximum of $1000 per person for establishments that have
been previously fined.
Managing permits is not complicated, but it is time consuming.
The question you must ask yourself is "Where is my time
better spent?" Taking care of guest service, monitoring
food quality, insuring minors and intoxicated guests are not
being served, and the myriad other challenges that confront
you every day, are probably more of a priority than keeping
track of your TABC Server Permits.
Permit compliance is time consuming, since permits must be
constantly monitored due to turnover, expiration, and promotion
of employees to alcohol serving positions.
Here's how we can help.
Our management system includes an on site monthly audit and
a report to the manager on duty which notes the following:
- All employees serving alcohol listing their permit expiration
dates and/or hire dates for new employees.
- Anyone who is out of compliance.
- Anyone who will be out of compliance within the next 60
- A list of out of compliance employees, or employees nearing
compliance dates, for posting and a current schedule.
This enables you at a glance to make the necessary decisions
based on who can legally be scheduled to serve. If you allow
someone to work in your establishment in an alcohol serving
position without a valid server permit you are subject to
- We provide a report to your regional director and to any
other authorized departments when requested.
- All of this pertinent information, along with your employees'
permits, is maintained in a notebook to be used by your
managers and the TABC agents.
- We give a schedule to your manager showing upcoming classes,
so all you have to do is send your employees to class. Attending
class in itself does not make them legal to serve; you must
have a copy of the permit issued by the TABC in your establishment.
Handling server permit issues is all we do.
