Mary FitzGerald, NCFPM, the founder and principal of Safe & Sound Food Safety Consultants, has a distinguished track record of raising the quality of service and sanitary environment of every establishment she serves. Her success record is impeccable and dedication to ensuring the long-term success of her clients is unimpeachable.

Mary has been in food service and hospitality her entire life; serving others, eating healthy and being an example sets her apart...she does what she says and says what she does!

She received her B.S. degree in Dietetics from Immaculata University, Philadelphia, PA and was determined to start her career in institutional food service. After her US Public Health Service Dietetic Internship, her first position turned out to be with a well respected and rapidly growing restaurant company in San Francisco; from that point forward, Mary remained in the restaurant industry.

After only weeks at her first job, Mary was promoted to new restaurant opening kitchen trainer and quality assurance, where she was responsible for setting up the entire kitchen and storage areas as well as train all production, line and maintenance employees in both culinary and food safety practices. During this time, she opened restaurants from California to New York (22) with stops in between ultimately becoming the General Manager of a 5 floor restaurant in mid-town Manhattan for over 12 years. Over time, Mary continued her training and career in the restaurant industry and, most recently was hired by a prominent restaurant company in New York to prepare them for the new, Letter Grade Program, similar to the one in Los Angeles. Faced with enormous obstacles; large, old buildings, poorly constructed and with years of neglect, she assessed the issues for each of the seven properties which included kitchen renovation, large equipment replacement, training of all culinary teams from Executive Chefs to Porters.

Four months into the program, the first NYC Health Inspector arrived bestowing an A rating with the first inspection. Over the ensuing months, all 9 restaurants received the coveted ‘A’ rating on their first inspection. Continuing that record, today Mary's clients continue to to receive and maintain 'A' ratings

Mary was then contracted by EcoSure to audit all Starbucks in New York City, Hilton Hotels, NYU and Pace University food service facilities, TGI Friday’s and McDonalds. With a number of independent restaurants for whom she performed inspection audits and training, all received ‘A’ ratings.

Certified in HACCP, SAFE & SOUND can create HACCP plans for individual menu procedures, individual items or can prepare you entire menu to be in compliance with local and federal regulations

As Certified ServSafe Instructor and Registered Proctor, Mary trains and certifies managers with genuine skill and enthusiasm.
