Mobile/Temp Food Vendor Information

Inspection Checklist for Mobile Food Vending

The Georgetown Fire & Life Safety Division has implemented a Mobile Food Vendor Fire Safety Inspection and Permitting Process. Any Mobile Food Vendor who wants to operate in the City of Georgetown or in Emergency Services District #8 (E.S.D.#8) will need to obtain a Mobile Food Vendor Permit from the Fire & Life Safety Division of the Georgetown Fire Department.

The Mobile Food Vendor Fire Permit fee is $125 and is valid for 1 year from the date it is issued.

A Mobile Food Vendor is defined as an enclosed trailer or enclosed truck that uses propane or any other heat source to prepare food for sale. This does NOT include a vehicle that sells prepackaged foods.

If a Mobile Food Vendor is from out of town, a safety inspection can be performed on site the day of the special event. The vendor is responsible for the inspection fee and proof of payment in the event it was paid online. If the inspection fails and the violations cannot be corrected, the vendor will NOT be allowed to operate and no refund is given.

Please refer to the safety inspection checklist above prior to a mobile food vendor safety inspection. Our goal is to provide a safe environment for mobile food vendors by using NFPA 58 guidelines. In the event a Fire & Life Safety Inspector deems a Mobile Food Vendor to be unsafe for any reason, a permit may not be issued or revoked. The City of Georgetown may require items that other cities do not. For example, the City of Georgetown requires ventilation and a suppression system if frying takes place inside of the enclosed truck or trailer.
