Caterers may only operate out of licensed food service establishments. Foods may not be prepared at home or in other unlicensed locations.
When a catering application is submitted, our staff will determine if the existing food service establishment (equipment, amount of refrigeration, hot water capacity, storage space, hand wash facilities, etc.) can accommodate the proposed new catering operation.
A plan review may be required. Staff will determine this after consultation and/or review of the licensed food service establishment’s file. Catering applicants may also need to contact the township and local building department for approval to open.
An inspection will also be required before a catering operation will be allowed to open.
