  • Washington Ice Cream Shop Licenses and Permits

    Washington State is home to forests, mountains, rivers, lakes, volcanoes, beaches and bays. So, it's not surprising that a state with such natural beauty works hard to find a balance between safeguarding the environment, protecting consumers and maintaining a thriving business community. Like most western states, Washington has a fair amount of state and city level licenses. However, it maintains fewer than neighboring Oregon or giant California below that.

    In Washington, when you scream, I scream and we all scream for ice cream, somebody may need a permit. In many cities including New York and Philadelphia, the sale of frozen desserts are specifically regulated and require special inspections and permits.
