Jumpin Java Bean said:Very cool finding this thread - I've been thinking about the same thing, business plan and all. Enjoyed checking out the sites referenced. This is a pretty newbish question: I've inferred from my searching and surfing that mobile concessions are regulated by local county/municipal health departments - is it right to assume that if I want to vend at festivals and special events in three nearby counties, I will need permits for each county? In particular, my question has to do with wanting to do festivals in my own and nearby states. Does this complicate matters? If the vehicle has to be inspected for the permit, will I have to drive to the state a week before the event for the permit turnaround? Yuck. What do carny vendors do? Thanks in advance.
