Restaurants & Markets

Over 7,500 food facilities in Riverside County are the traditional “brick and mortar” locations.  They are fixed food facilities, meaning that they cannot move (as compared to a food booth or a food truck).  These include food facilities such as restaurants, grocery stores, bars, and school cafeterias.

Are you interested in owning a fixed food facility?  There are 3 ways that can happen:

Take over an existing fixed food facility and make NO changes to the facility, equipment, or menu:

 

  • Before taking over the facility, contact the local Environmental Health office to inform them you will be the new owner.
  • Speak with the Lead Inspector and schedule an on-site inspection.  They will be able to tell you if there are any structural upgrades that will need to be made before you are issued a health permit.
