Default Permit/License

Anyone have any experience with NJ in what permits or license you need to start small-scale catering? I can't see seem to get a straight answer! I found a commercial kitchen to rent, which has all of its inspections and permits up to date. The owner says that is all I need, as does my insurance carrier. Am I missing something?? Thanks in advance as you guys are always great!

Talk to the health department for their requirements. Then talk to the City where you will have your business address, you likely still need a business license. I don't know N.J. but, here in Cali, you needs a business license from the City, an inspection certificate from the County Health, and Safe-serv certification, or equal, for food handlers.
you won't always like the answer that you get - Ronelle
