What are the requirements for a food truck?
Food trucks and push carts must pay an annual fee of $150 and submit an application for Mobile Food Service Unit (MFSU) Location Approval to the zoning office if they are interested in public property sites, private property sites, or both. After obtaining zoning location approval, they must obtain permits for their Base of Operation and their food truck from the Georgia Department of Public Health prior to operation. They must also obtain a Business Tax Certificate (a.k.a. business license) from the City Revenue Department. For more information, visit this link:Food Truck Web Page
