TABC is an organization that servers, bartenders, managers and anyone else in the foodservice industry that works in an establishment and serves alcohol needs to give careful attention. This organization mandates a list of regulations these foodservice workers must follow in order to maximize the safety of yourself and others.
TABC stands for “Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission” and it actively tracks workers that sell alcohol. It regulates how workers are able to utilize suggestive selling, but it also requires these workers to stay accountable while doing so.
As an example in food service, more alcohol sales usually mean a bigger tab. As a result, the server typically receives more tips. Since there is a potential conflict of interest between customer sobriety and tips, TABC mandates servers and bartenders that carry a TABC to watch out for the consumers.
Another example of how TABC makes an impact on individual safety is by restricting the sale of alcohol to minors. Despite there being a widely-known federal law against underage drinking, adolescents tend to be rebellious, take risks, and experiment. Servers and bartenders are usually instructed to I.D. anyone that looks to be under 30 years of age to help prevent these activities.
How Can You Benefit?
Obtaining a TABC opens many doors for you in the job market. Not only can you work in restaurants or establishments that sell alcohol, you can also work as an event worker or sales ambassador for experiential marketing agencies.
For example, Dragon Spirits Marketing is widely known for its effectiveness in liquor sales during liquor tastings at liquor stores. Working as a sales ambassador, or “Dragon”, can net you a good paycheck for only a few hours of work.
Or if experiential marketing is not your thing, you can always stick to traditional food service jobs such as waiter/waitress or bartender and make great pay with tips. Either way, getting your TABC can ensure job stability, or at least have various job prospects.
How Can I Get The TABC?
The TABC is a great investment to add to your portfolio. The best way to get your TABC is through an online course. These courses tend to be cheaper than in-person classes and provide the time flexibility you need. I highly recommend taking advantage of Dragon Spirit Marketing’s TABC discount program. DSM has partnered up with one of the leading TABC course providers, Learn2Serve, to reduce the cost of acquiring or renewing your TABC.
