  • Georgia Diner Licenses and Permits

    When it isn't on your mind, Georgia may be reaching into your wallet. Georgia regulates a fair number of industries and counts on the revenues to help fund the tight-budgeted state. Businesses can expect to obtain a combination of state, county and city licenses.

    In Georgia, 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.
