Food Beverage Plan Review - Request

Wait to begin construction until after the plans are approved.

This is for a permanent location only. See Food Stand Licensing for information about Transient (food carts, booths) Food Service Plan Review applications.

Pre-planning and consultation on construction, equipment, and food safety 

Submitting and discussing preliminary construction plans with OCPHS is highly recommended.

  1. Onsite assessment of existing facilities is highly recommended.
  2. A preliminary menu review is required.
  3. Identify or develop food safety systems (policies and procedures needed to prevent food borne illness in your facility) and arrange to discuss them with OCPHS staff during construction of the facility. These policies and procedures must be understood by all employees at the time the business is issued a license to operate.
