Mobile Food Establishments


The City of Wharton requires all Mobile Food Establishment to obtain a Mobile Food Vendor Permit from the Code Enforcement Department. All permits expire on December 31st of the current year. Please review the four steps listed below to obtain a permit.

 

Step 1

Health Inspections are conducted by the Texas Department of State Health Services. All food vendors must first acquire a State Health Permit. The Mobile Food Unit Permit Application can be printed and returned or can filed online using the States Regulatory Service Online Licensing System. For assistance or additional information contact the Health Inspector Becky Coonrad by phone at (713) 767- 2446 or email. More information on obtaining a State Health Permit can be located here.

 

Step 2

Complete the City of Wharton Mobile Food Vendor Permit Application. Copies can by picked up at the Wharton Code Enforcement Department, 120 E Caney St., Wharton TX 77488.

 

As noted in the application form, applicants will also be required to include the following forms with their applications:

Step 3

Once you receive your Mobile Food Vendor License, schedule an inspection with the Code Enforcement Department by calling 979-532-2491 ext. 232. 

 

Mobile food establishment inspections will be conducted at Guffey Park located at 255 W Caney St., Wharton, TX 77488. An appointment will be made for specific day-date-time.

 

Missed appointments will result in a re-inspection fee. Off-site inspections will not be conducted.

The City of Wharton inspection requirement may be waived in certain circumstances where valid permits and certificates are in place from pre-approved entities. Notify the Code Enforcement Department if you have existing permits and certificates in place when you call to schedule your inspection.
