Our ABC Card Auditing Program

Our management system includes an on site monthly audit and a report for the "manager on duty" This report 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.

  • Any new employee who will be out of compliance or closing in on their 61 day grace period.

  • Notification of employees nearing their card expiration date. 30 day notice.


This enables a manager to take an  "at a glance look" to be able to make the necessary decisions based on who can legally be scheduled to serve. Don’t be subject to TABC fines.

We provide a report to your regional director or owner 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.


Why We Do What We Do?
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 comes in.


  • 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. Let us take the hassle of managing your establishments ABC Cards.
