Food Service Establishmentsfoodservice

When deciding to open a food service establishment or serve food to the public, you can count on the CCHD to assist you in understanding the NY State Health Department regulations, laws, and procedures that you must know, in order to be in compliance prior to, and after the opening of your establishment, and when serving the public.

There are certain permits that you must obtain in order to open your food service establishment, or serve food to the public. Read below for more information or contact the CCHD.


What are Some of the Steps Needed to Obtain a Food Service Permit?

First, determining what your food service establishment classification would be. The CCHD will help you determine this. Are you considered to be a:
   a) Food Service Establishment including Restaurant, Catering Company, Bar or Tavern or School
   b) Mobile Food Service Establishment of Food Cart
   d) Temporary Food Service Establishment
   e) Vending Food Machine

All the above classifications will need to read and fill out the "Guide to Obtaining a Permit to Operate a Food Service Establishment" packet located within the "Food Service Packet" under Forms on the Info Bar. This guide has all the necessary documents and instructions to get you started in applying for your operating permit.

You will then be required to make an appointment with the CCHD to review all your documentation and plans. You may have to fill out additional documentation if your service has special circumstances.

NOTE: The CCHD does publish the link to New York State's food service inspections website. This allows the public to see food inspection details performed on all facilities in Clinton County by CCHD. The link is provided in the Info Bar, and other areas of this website.


Do I Need an Operating Permit for Selling Pre-Packaged Food?

Not if you are only serving or selling items like commercially prepared packaged snacks, candies, and canned or bottled beverages. In general, all other types of public food service will need a permit.
