Whether you use a cart, trailer or vehicle, there are certain requirements that you must meet before you can light up those grills and flat tops! The authorities must be convinced that your food business meets their standards.
In addition to a permit, there will be a full inspection of your food cart or truck before you receive authorization to serve the public your food!
Food safety is obviously a major issue in public health, and the equipment you use must be appropriate and safe as well. Each state will have its own set of laws so be sure to research your area before buying anything!
For example, if you operate a pushcart in Dallas, your container can be no longer than 6 feet. Furthermore, the roof vents of your container should prevent dust and flies from entering.
