A New York Mobile Kitchen Inspection Checklist, Brooklyn, New York

Mobile food trucks provide exciting opportunities for aspiring entrepreneurs, especially in a vibrant market like New York. However, there are state food safety qualifications your mobile kitchen must meet in order to operate within the law. Here are some of the most important factors to consider as you get started.

3 Setup Tips for Mobile Food Trucks in New York

1. Adequate Food Storage

Food contamination is a major concern for health departments. During an inspection, they’ll check to make sure that your food is stored properly, which means that it’s kept at the proper temperature and away from any potentially harmful materials like sewage, bacteria, or noxious gas. Your kitchen will need to be outfitted with enough refrigerated, frozen, and sealed storage to accommodate the ingredients you work with on a daily basis.

2. Proper Sanitation Facilities & Supplies

There should also be sufficient equipment in place to clean dishes or utensils so those items don’t lead to harmful contamination. Finally, you need to ensure that there’s an easy way to remove trash or waste without filling your entire food supply with contaminants.

3. Clear Employee Policies

Operating a mobile food truck requires you to go through the inspection process regularly, which means you need a consistently clean and safe facility. In addition to providing places for employees to wash up and dispose of trash safely, you need to enforce policies that require your workers to hold up the sanitary standards.
