MFF Annual Permit Renewal Inspections

Mobile Food Facilities (MFFs) renewing the annual Permit to Operate, will require the following annually, prior to scheduling the inspection.

  1. Completed and signed MFF Renewal Cover Sheet
  2. Completed and signed Commissary Agreement (NOTE: Produce vehicles are exempt)
    1. If overnight parking is not at a food facility, complete MFF Storage Agreement. Only CMFOs may be stored at a private home upon completing CMFO Self-Certification Checklist and approval. 

 

The following documents are required if there any changes from previous year:

  1. Menu (include ingredients)
  2. Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)
  3. DMV Registration (i.e changes to license plate)
  4. MFF Route Sheet

 

Submit renewal documents to schedule annual inspections PRIOR to permit expiration date. Review process and approval can take up to 20 business days.

 

Annual Permit fees are due prior to the permit expiration date, and payment alone does not grant the right to operate.  Permit will be issued once payment AND upon passing of the annual inspection. MFFs operating without a valid permit will be closed and subject to enforcement action.

Please note that permits expire at the end of the month of every year, the month it expires is punched out on the permit decal affixed to the back of the vehicle. The permit expiration date is also indicated on the paper permit that is mailed, once the annual renewal inspection is passed.
