The corn-fed, solid people of Nebraska may be friendly, but they mean business. And in a state that takes businesses as seriously as Nebraska, you can expect the licenses and permits to be relatively few and straightforward. Nebraska keeps things simple -- clear forms and processes. Less regulation than most West-Coast or Northeastern states. Plain licensing for plains people.
In Nebraska, candy shops, Confectioners and Chocolatiers require environmental health licenses usually from counties and cities. However, the exact license type can vary widely with some jurisdictions specially licensing confectioners, while others treat candy like any other packaged retail food. Candy makers can expect to obtain licenses and permits from state, county and city governments.
