Apply for a Theme Park Food Cart 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) extensively remodeled or 4) re-opened after being closed at least 1 year.

Application Requirements:

    Theme Park Food Carts are mobile or stationary units that operate within the confines of a theme park or entertainment complex as an extension of or in association with a fixed public food service establishment. Such carts are licensed collectively by the entity that maintains and operates them. The operator is required to notify the division immediately of any changes in the number of carts. [Rule 61C-1.002(5)(a)6., Florida Administrative Code]
