One of my interests and passions is nutrition. I believe firmly that almost every disease or condition can be cured or prevented through nutrition. Something I have wanted to do for a long time is open up a mobile smoothie/juice bar and vend, obviously, healthy smoothies and juices. Although it will be "mobile," I only plan on operating in one spot. The word mobile just puts emphasis on the fact that its a minimalist setup. My questions are as follows: What licenses are required to sell "beverages?" They don't have to be cooked, just mixed. How exactly do you get a permit to sell consumable items out of a cart/kiosk/vehicle? Where could one set up said cart? It will be outdoors (not a mall kiosk) but how do you go about leasing just enough space to fit a small cart and myself? Could it be as simple as getting a soliciting permit and permission to set up in a parking lot? I've done marketing and web design for a whole so this kind of business is a completely new concept for me. Any help is appreciated!
