Question added to topic FranchisesSeptember 4, 2008

I own a restaurant and I'm planning to sell my desserts in mini markets and grocery stores. Do I need another type of permit or license besides what I have now?

I have a Mexican restaurant and the desserts are my own recipe, so I think we can sell them in different markets and grocery stores. But I don't know whether my current permits are enough to sell retail.
Generally, restaurants and other food-service businesses must obtain a food service permit. Retail food stores--including vending machines--and food manufacturers, processors and wholesalers must have a food establishment permit.

Check with an attorney in your area to see whether the kind of permit you have covers both activities.
