  • Illinois Food Truck Licenses and Permits

    The home of Abraham Lincoln runs light on state-level governmental controls. Instead, most business licensing is left to the local level, especially in Chicago which boasts more than 70 different business licenses. Outside the big city, counties also play an important role in business governance.

    In Illinois, 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.
