Mobile Food Vendor
Though similar to restaurants, mobile food vendors must meet additional requirements to address potential hazards specific to mobile establishments.
Steps to Receive a Mobile Vendor Permit and Vendor Certificate of Occupancy
- Determine if the type of food being sold is considered non-potentially hazardous (non-perishable) or potentially hazardous (perishable). The Consumer Health Division will assist in that determination. 817-392-7255
- Check the zoning district where the food is to be sold to make sure the type of food can be sold
- If the zoning district is correct, provide the proper documentation to the Health Dept. to receive your Mobile Vendor Permit.
- Come to City Hall and apply for your Vendor Certificate of Occupancy (VCO). A driver’s license and copy of the current registration for the vehicle is required. A copy of the menu is requested.
