The great lakes adjacent state of Wisconsin has long been both an agrarian and industrial powerhouse. Major cities like Milwaukee and Madison stand in stark contrast to the rural agrarian plains. Wisconsin places strong emphasis on protecting its residents and its natural beauty using a fairly complex set of regulations. Thus, businesses often need a fair number of licenses and permits to operate.
In Wisconsin, 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.
