• Mobile food unit operations are required to be permitted and to operate in conjunction with a permitted commissary and required to return to the base daily for servicing. The commissary must meet the necessary standards in regulation 61-25 for the menu items served from the unit. Items normally required at the commissary are a preparation and cleaning area for food and food contact items.

  • The general requirements for operating a mobile unit are in the regulation, Chapter 9-1. You may wish to contact the regional Environmental Health Services office in your area for assistance in assessing your ability to meet the commissary and mobile unit requirements. Please be aware that you should also check with local zoning officials to see if you may operate a business out of your home if your commissary will be located at your home.
