It all depends on what the rules and regulations are in your municipality. In general, yes, you can run something like this from your home and yes, there would be certain permits you will need to obtain. Your best bet is to go to the business licensing website for your municipality to see exactly what you need to do -- or if that type of business can truly exist from your home.
