This service allows you to apply for a consultation or a permit to construct or modify a Mobile Food Facility (MFF) to be operated within San Luis Obispo County.
A health permit to operate a Mobile Food Facility will not be issued unless all construction and operational requirements are met.
If you have completed a construction plan check for your Mobile Food Facility and/or have received direction from this Agency to proceed with health permitting, please visit the Mobile Food Facility permitting page:
Consultation and/or Construction Plan Check applications are required for all MFFs and are within these categories:
- Full construction plan check required for:
- New construction of MFFs.
- Remodeled or modified MFFs.
- MFFs previously permitted where the health permit to operate expired 2 or more years ago.
- A 2-hour consultation or a full construction plan check required for:
- MFFs previously permitted in another jurisdiction within the last 2 years.
- Ownership changes of MFFs operated within San Luis Obispo County within the last 2 years where a significant menu change or change in operation will occur.
Please note a Housing and Community Development (HCD) certification is required for all occupiable MFFs, including those previously certified that have been modified or remodeled since the last certification date.
A prospective new owner is encouraged to contact our Agency with questions prior to purchasing or constructing any Mobile Food Facility. Additional consultation or construction plan check requirements will be determined during that time.
Please note, it is unlawful to build a Mobile Food Facility without prior written approval from this office.
