  • Tennessee Catering Truck Licenses and Permits

    The birthplace of country and blues has become far more than the agrarian state it once was. Tennessee's major urban centers are important cities with significant economies. And Tennessee fully supports economic growth and development -- which may be why it doesn't impose too much regulation on business. Unlike many states, Tennessee gives counties and cities significant leeway to decide on their own regulations -- often making state licenses required only at the discretion of local jurisdictions.

    In Tennessee, food trucks are sweeping the nation. As trucks have changed from standard pre-prepared hamburgers, sandwiches and tacos to gourmet and specialty foods, people around the country have jumped on the food truck bandwagon. However, these popular, low-overhead businesses have no shortage of licensing and permitting required. Often numerous state, county and city licenses are needed including several environmental health permits.
