Permanent Food Facilities means a restaurant, bar, retail food market, public and private school cafeteria, farm stand, bed and breakfast establishment, or other fixed location facility where food intended for human consumption is provided to the general public.
New Facility Construction
Prior to beginning construction or remodel, a construction/remodel permit must be issued by Environmental Health Services.
Please note, additional permitting may be required by the local city or county jurisdiction Planning and Building Department.
Ownership Changes for Currently or Formerly Permitted Permanent Food Facilities
Health permits are nontransferrable.
Whether you are looking to take over ownership of a permanent food facility currently under permit with Environmental Health Services, or buy or lease a food facility which was formerly under permit with Environmental Health Services, then you must obtain a new health permit under your name, or business name, prior to beginning operation.
