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.

The state capitol is also the largest city in the state. Because of its riverside location, Columbus has long been a center of trade and industry. Today's Columbus has diversified out of the heavy manufacturing that has long been its staple and now includes high tech, energy, design and retail sectors.
Like most Ohio cities, Columbus keeps local regulation relatively light and instead has the state take the lead on business regulation.
