Prior to the construction or modification of an annual mobile food service establishment, the Department of Health requires the submittal of plans for review and approval. Once approved, the construction/modification may take place. Annual mobile food service establishments must also provide the location of a commissary, a letter from that commissary stating that the unit has permission to use the commissary for food storage and cleaning of the mobile unit, and a daily sales route including location(s) and time(s). Inspections occur upon request throughout the process. A final inspection and full compliance is required prior to the use of the establishment or modified area, as well as the submission of the application and associated fees.
