Food Service Permit – Mobile

This permit application is for mobile food service facilities open 14 – 365 days per calendar year. Hot dog carts and food trucks are examples of mobile food operations. Mobile food service facilities cannot stay parked in one place for more than 14 consecutive days because they are not hard plumbed to community water and sewer services. Certified food service sanitation staff may be required for mobile permits, depending on the menu. Contact our office for other requirements.

To apply for a mobile permit, complete the Mobile Food Service Application and return it to SCDPH with the appropriate fee (listed on application) two weeks before opening. You must also contact our office at 217-535-3145 to schedule an inspection prior to opening or purchasing food.
