Wouldn't it be fantastic if you could load your food truck with supplies, find a busy street corner, and start selling right away? Unfortunately, it isn't as simple as that. Before you begin selling food, you must first ensure that your food truck business is legal and compliant. All of these expenses are required, including business insurance, food service permits, code inspections, and food truck licenses. Furthermore, many of these are annual expenditures rather than one-time fees. So How Much is a Food Truck Permit?

Here's how much each component of achieving legal and regulatory standards will cost:

The cost of registering a business ranges from $75 to $150.
The cost of registering a vehicle ranges from $75 to $150.
Permits for foodservice range from $250 to $1,000 per year.
A fire safety permit costs between 125 and $150 per year.
The cost of a food truck license/permit ranges from $250 to $500 each year.
Parking or storage for food trucks costs between $200 and $1000 per month.
The cost of pitching an event is $500 per event.

As you can see, a food truck requires a significant initial expenditure. While it is undeniably a fantastic business opportunity, it is not one to be taken lightly.
