MISSION​

To protect the health of the citizens of Coppell from foodborne illness, communicable disease and hazardous materials through routine inspection, education, monitoring, investigation and enforcement of food and environmental ordinances.​​ 

Environmental Health protects the public from foodborne, waterbor​ne and other communicable diseases through routine inspections and education.

Food Safety and Restaurant Scores

The City of Coppell Food Program is responsible for protecting the public health by inspecting for food safety in restaurants, grocery stores, schools, daycares and other retail food establishments. A food establishment health permit is required for all businesses or organizations that provide perishable foods, whether prepackaged or non-prepackaged, to the public. Permanent establishments as well as temporary events are required to apply for a food permit, regardless of whether there is a charge for the food.

Certified Food Service Manager:

The City of Coppell requires a Certified Food Protection Manager for all establishments that have employees whose work brings them in contact with the handling of food, utensils, or food service equipment. Click here for more information on Certified Food Protection Manager recognized exams and testing agencies. 

Food Inspection Results:

Food establishment inspections are the primary tool for detecting procedures and practices that may be hazardous.  The restaurant scores are used as a tool by the City to place a value on compliance to the regulations, educate the operators, and thereby encourage corrective action.  It should not be assumed that the inspection results reflect how an establishment always operates.
