With a food cart travel is easy so you can take your business just about anywhere. If you want to work in multiple locations, you can do it. But you should know the rules so you don't run into trouble while vending on the road.
Need Licenses for Multiple States?
If you are going to sell food at an event, even if you are not licensed in that location, you may be covered by an event umbrella license that the organizer obtains. However, if you want to take your food cart out of state and set it up on your own, you will probably need a license to sell food legally in that state.
Before making any decisions or purchases, be sure you get the information on requirements for all of the states you will be working in. That way, you can choose the right food cart that satisfies the requirements for all locations. Even if it has too many features for one area, it will meet the minimum for the others, and you'll be set!
Then you can have an even greater range of location possibilities!
Some food vendors even put the food cart in a toy hauler and take it on road trips. It's like having your own mobile kitchen on vacation, and you aren't stuck using the dirty camp grills that other people leave crusted with who knows what.
So food cart travel is possible, and can be a good way to increase your business. Obviously, mobility is one of the best things about the street food business! Just be sure you get the information you need so you can work legally. Doing research ahead of time can prevent problems down the road.
