Re: Noob in NC, legal questions
Can't speak to the specific State laws governing NC. But here in WA, OR, and ID the AG is in charge of processing facilities. So anything that could be sold on a store shelf. For you this could include if you are roasting your own beans for sale from the truck. The Health Departments/Public Health deal with restaurants whether mobile, brick an mortar, or pop up booth. But there are exceptions like coffee shops. If you are only selling coffee(no unprocessed food items) they may offer a exempt permitting option. You would still need to prove that you have proper hand washing and the added hurdle of water treatment due to the standing fresh water issue. Also here in WA any Built, modified and purchased food units need to be certified by Labor and Industry.
