Simply stuffing face at the 600+ food carts in P-town is enough for me, but not so for many of you. No, some of you actually want to run one of these things!
If you’re ready to become one of the peas in a cart pod, first you’ll need to do some research about permits, licenses, business plans, outfitting a cart and the like.
Here is a handy list of links and books to get you started....
Permits and Permissions:
Mobile Food Unit Operation Guide (Oregon DHS)
Mobile Food Unit Licensing and Inspection (MultCo Health Dept.)
Vending Carts on Private Property (Portland Bureau of Development)
Vending Cart Types and Permits (Portland Bureau of Development)
