Mobile Food Units and Pushcarts Information

The North Carolina Rules governing the sanitation of Food Service Establishments (15A NCAC 18A .2600) require that plans be drawn to scale and submitted to local Health Department for review and approval.  This must be done prior to construction or remodeling a Mobile Food Unit or Pushcart.  Review by this Department will be delayed if an application is submitted incomplete or does not contain all supporting documentation.

Please Note:

After April 15, 2019 only the New 2019 MFU/PUC application will be accepted

 

What Is A Mobile Food Unit?

Mobile Food Unit – a food establishment or pushcart designed to be readily moved and vend food. Approval of food items being prepared and sold off a mobile food unit is directly proportional to the presence of mandatory equipment located upon the unit and/or at the affiliated commissary. Reference rule 15A NCAC 18A .2672 for minimum construction and design expectations for permitted mobile food units.​

What Is A Pushcart?

Pushcart – a mobile piece of equipment or vehicle used to vend food. Pushcart menus are restricted to the service of hot dogs and similar pre-cooked encased meats along with their associated condiments, pre-packaged drinks and snacks. Reference rule 15A NCAC 18A .2671​ for minimum construction and design expectations for permitted pushcarts.​
