Q & A - Hi, I am interested in opening a pop-up restaurant. What kind of permits should I submit?
Hello. Here are the possible scenarios for pop-up restaurant licensing:
A restaurant has a guest chef that comes into the restaurant and cooks with the other restaurant employees - this would not require a separate license.
A chef has their own area (dining and/or kitchen) in a restaurant with their own employees separate from the licensed restaurant - this would require a separate license.
A chef operates when a restaurant is closed under another name with their own employees - this would require a separate license.
Multiple operators operate at one location with separate staff - each operator would need their own license.
