All Food Trucks/Trailers/Push-Carts must obtain a license and a permit prior to operating in the City of Circleville. These are specific to the City of Circleville and are required in addition to any licensing/permitting required by the state, the health department, or any other regulating agencies.
Step 1. Apply for a License
The license registers your food truck/trailer/push-cart with the City. This DOES NOT allow you to operate. A permit is required to operate in the City.
There are 3 options for a license, depending on your operations in the City:
- Monthly ($10)
- Semi-Annual ($20)
- Annual ($30 w/ $10 annual renewal)
The information you will need to submit for the license includes:
- Applicant Information
- License plate #
- Truck dimensions
- Federal Tax ID or Social Security #
- Transient Vendor’s License # (if selling anything other than food)
- Insurance Information
- Proof of correct fire extinguisher
Step 2. Apply for a Permit
There are two different types of food truck/trailer/push-cart permits. The type of permit you must apply for depends on where you will be operating your food truck/trailer/push-cart. Both types of permits cost $10 and are valid for any three (3) consecutive days in a seven (7) consecutive day period. A separate permit must be obtained for each new period of operation or new location. The CS (Community Service) Zoning District is exempt from permits.
