Florida Requirements
 
Does anyone know that the requirements are in Florida to sell BBQ on the side of the road?

Bbq Bubba 07-10-2009 09:03 AM

Start with your local Health Dept. :biggrin:

I beleive it changes from county to county in florida. I know in volusia county they are more laid back then in brevard county check with your county

BigJimsBBQ 07-11-2009 02:02 PM

Local Heath Dept and possibly County Business Licence. Start with Health Dept.

Yep. Check with the Health Department. I used the office on East Bay a few years ago. They were helpful. Do some on-line research and you can find the rather lengthy documentation on requirements...I will say the county pretty much mirrors the state requirements. Also, don't forget local municipality rules. It's a maze...

Yes....don't spend any money until you check with the Health Department.

You don't want to have to buy something twice...because it didn't pass inspection
the first time.

RubMeTender 07-28-2009 07:04 PM

after much research, i think i'll stick to the comps and backyard for a little while. Florida doesnt seem as relaxed as other states. thanks for the help guys

Troubles Bubbles??????? Did you finally get approved? I think I'm doing a little better than you. For example as my sinks are for warewashing and hand washing only so all that air gap stuff does not apply. I needed a 6 gal water heater turned up to max heat but it should pass. Also got hit with a new NSF fridge ($1100) but that's life. And a new drain connection to be my mop sink with a cheap large funnel to pour slop water into. And they passed the 20 gal tank for waste with a 15 gal RV rolling unit and I have a 20 gal fresh. Big deal is self closing vending window and I think I have that licked. Friday afternoon he'll be here to inspect and collect $140 for the license.

And looks like I have a prime location on Thursdays until early October. I'm excited.

Passed finally Monday, went with bar sinks and 2 4 gallon water heaters.
Problem was trying to make do with the VERY large triple stainless sink i had, would have needed a hot water heater on a trailer by their specs so all in all life is good and i re-opened today to a very hungry lunch crowd!

Good luck with inspection! :biggrin:

PS, i just put in a screen in my vending window with a small sliding panel to pass food thru.

Is the screen self closing or did you buy an air curtain. That's a must in Kent County.

I sure would love to see some pics of that setup if you got any.

Bbq Bubba 07-30-2009 02:46 PM

My hand closes it itself so I guess.
Air curtains are NOT bug proof, Mi. Food police are morons!
We need to get our own thread. Think. :)

Where is your prime location? I live near by and need to test some award winning Q. If I don't find some soon here in West MI, I will need to drive to New Baltimore to be schooled by Bubba.
