Opening a New Permanent Food Establishment

If you are building a new building or remodeling an existing establishment or structure, you can jump right in and begin the Plan Review process. If, however, you are buying an existing establishment and plan to run it "as is", we recommend a call to the Health Department first. We have records on all existing food establishments under our jurisdiction, and can tell you before you buy if you would be inheriting any previously identified problems. Our sanitarians can be very helpful in pointing out potential pitfalls.
