  • Alabama Cafe/Bakery Cafe Licenses and Permits

    While still one of the more economically challenged states in the nation, Alabama has a number of important cities and economic centers. Alabama has a moderate number of business licenses and permits regulating a number of industries. However, Alabama's cities and counties also play a significant role in state business license and permit issuance.

    In Alabama, any business that serves food can endanger public health. That’s why restaurants are some of the most regulated businesses out there. Multiple state, county and city environmental health permits are common for restaurants. Those that serve alcohol need even more licensing. Prospective restaurateurs should expect to apply for at least five licenses and permits and in many cases much more.
