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.

Sitting across the water from New York City, Jersey City shares in the region's busy shipping and international commerce. Busy shipping ports and access to several waterways including the Atlantic Ocean make Jersey City an ideal, less busy port. However, several large companies have also taken advantage of Jersey City's lower tax rates and less dense environment including several in finance, distribution and food manufacturing.
From a licensing perspective, Jersey City is far less regulated than neighboring New York. With a simple local licensing process and a relatively efficient state process, entrepreneurs will find Jersey City a welcoming environment.
