Temporary Restaurants (Food Booths)
A temporary restaurant is any establishment operating temporarily in connection with any event where food is prepared or served for consumption by the public. Examples of events include: fairs, carnivals, circuses, festivals, concerts, or any other public gathering. They are commonly referred to as food booths. To operate a temporary restaurant, Oregon law requires that all food booths or food service activities open to the public must obtain a temporary restaurant license from Tillamook County Environmental Health PRIOR to operation.
All foods must be prepared on-site or purchased from an approved source. Home-prepared foods may not be served to the public.
Benevolent (non-profit) businesses do not pay a fee for the temporary license. Non-benevolent (for profit) businesses pay a $95 fee. Non-benevolent (for profit) mobile units licensed in another Oregon county pay a $25 fee. Applications not received at least 5 business days PRIOR to the event will incur a late fee of $20. E.g. The application for an event beginning Wednesday must be received by the prior Wednesday; The application for an event beginning Friday must be received by the prior Friday; The application for an event beginning Saturday must be received by Monday of that week.
