Step 3: Food Sales and Preparation Requirements

If your business involves the sale, distribution, or preparation of food, contact the Health Department at 781-246-6375. You'll discuss their Plan Review Application and review the application fees, annual permits, and inspections they require. 

A site plan showing the building and the location of outside equipment is required with your Plan Review Application. You will also need to provide a floor plan and other documentation like proposed menus and certifications. Subsequent follow-up meetings may be necessary depending on the complexity of the issues that are raised by your application.

Obtain a complete list of all additional health permits you'll need and submit your applications. The Board of Health has 30 days from the date a complete application is submitted to either approve or reject it.
