Food Inspection

The Food Inspection Program is responsible for the permitting and inspection of temporary, mobile, and permanent food establishments across the city. The goal is to ensure safe, sanitary and compliant establishments. In addition, Food Inspection staff also conducts reviews of building plans for the construction of new food establishments, and the remodel of existing ones.

Food Inspection Scores

Food establishments located within the City of Sugar Land obtain a permit and receive inspections from the Food Inspection Division of the Environmental & Neighborhood Services Department. Food Inspection staff are licensed by the State of Texas and inspect for compliance with the Texas Food Establishment Rules. Inspectors look for issues related to cleanliness, safe food handling practices, equipment functionality, and documentation requirements.

The City of Sugar Land does not score inspections based on a letter grade system. Instead, inspections are scored based on a 100-point scale. 

Inspection requirements all fall into categories which have specific point valuations. Should an establishment fail to comply with a category, those points are lost.

Beginning in January 2019, inspection scores will be posted on this website each quarter. Establishments will receive a routine inspection at least twice a year.

Governor Greg Abbott issued (Executive Order GA-34)  on March 2, 2021 that withdraws several former executive orders. Effective March 10, 2021, this order authorizes all businesses of any type to operate at a 100 percent occupancy, and it lifts the former State mask mandate in Texas. While it may not be a requirement to follow the previous State Health Protocols, we highly recommend continuing with the guidelines provided by the State to protect the health & welfare of employees and customers.

All Food Establishments must continue to adhere to the Texas Food Establishment Rules and the City of Sugar Land Ordinances.
