Pasco Passes Rules Allowing Food Trucks
To receive a mobile food operations license, applicants must provide all required state of Florida licenses before operating within the county.
PASCO COUNTY – Food trucks are now allowed in Pasco County, creating a recipe for success for operators and foodies alike.
Pasco’s new mobile food operations ordinance and required annual license ensures food trucks meet state licensing requirements and are properly prepared to sell safe food.
Food trucks not only provide opportunity for special events in a growing marketplace, but are an important resource for communities with fewer brick-and-mortar offerings to address food deficiencies, officials said.
“We’re excited to share the delicious and diverse offerings food trucks provide,” said Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey. “Licensed food trucks not only enhance our festivals and events, but provide economic opportunity beyond the traditional restaurant setting.”
To receive a mobile food operations license, applicants must provide all required state of Florida licenses before operating within the county. Once registered, mobile food operations may be located on non-residential, private property with the owner’s permission. Pasco County officials said they plan to identify future county sites as well, such as parks, libraries and more.

Mobile food operations licenses are also available in person at any Pasco Central Permitting location. The cost is $100, renewed annually.
