Site Specific Vendors
When is a Site Specific Vendor License Needed?
A site-specific vendor's license is required if an individual sells or offers to sell goods or services from a stationary location.
What is the Application Process?
A completed "Application For Vendor/Operator" to DPS must be submitted, along with a scaled site plan indicating where the vendor is to be located.
A valid driver's license is required to process the application.
If a site is located on private property, a letter allowing use of the property for vending is required. Only zoning categories which permit the commercial use proposed on the application may be occupied by the vendor.
If the site is located in the public right-of-way, the vendor must submit an application for and be approved as a Certified Agricultural Producer. (See Certification for Agricultural Producers for requirements.)
The selling of prepared foods or prepackaged food and beverages of any kind requires a Food Service Permit from the Licensure and Regulatory Services Section of the Department of Health and Human Services (240) 777-3986.
