I want to operate a vending cart, mobile or drive up business
There are very different rules that apply to different types of vending carts or trailers in the City of Portland.
All food carts all need to be approved, licensed and inspected by the Multnomah County Health Department prior to construction and/or operation of the unit. For more information, call the county at (503) 988-3400 or visit their web site.
Portland Fire and Rescue regulates the use of natural gas or propane, and any outside cooking apparatus such as grills, barbecues, smokers, open pit roasters.
