Mobile Food Establishments

***Late fees, due to the ongoing pandemic, have been waived for all CHS occupational and establishment licenses per emergency rules promulgated by the department. 


There are multiple types of mobile licenses based on the types of food prepared and sold as well as the type of cart, trailer or vehicle and where the foods are sold.  To learn more about a specific type of mobile license and the requirements, click on the type below.

  • Mobile food establishment – a vehicle mounted establishment that prepares and sales food inside the vehicle.  This operation closely resembles a restaurant on wheels. 
  • Mobile retail food establishment – an operation that sells only packaged food where the food has been prepared in an approved, regulated facility.  This may be a vehicle or stationary display.
  • Indoor mobile pushcart – a food unit that is not self-propelled and can be manually moved, located within the confines of a building.
  • Outdoor mobile pushcart – a food unit that is not self-propelled and can be manually moved operated outside.

Depending on the exact nature of operations, a commissary license may also be required (separate license in addition to the mobile license).  A commissary is a facility used to maintain safe and sanitary operations for the cleaning and servicing of pushcarts and mobile units; and for the storage of single service articles used during the operation of food sales.  Click on the type of operation above to learn more about the application and requirements of a commissary for your specific operation.
