Apply for a Mobile Food Dispensing Vehicle (MFDV) Plan Review Only

To begin Florida's food service licensing process, the law requires the division to review facility plans for sanitation and safety concerns. Plan review is required when the establishment is: 1) newly built, 2) converted from another use, 3) remodeled or 4) re-opened after being closed at least 1 year. The application process described below is for a new Mobile Food Dispensing Vehicle plan review only. **This application requires a follow-up license application. For the vast majority of applicants the New MFDV License and Plan Review at the Same Time choice is the best way to become licensed.

Application Requirements:
  • Application: You are on track to apply for a Mobile Food Dispening plan review (without a license). Please take a moment to briefly review our Guide to MDFVs page.
