Does anyone know if you have to have a seperate health department clearance for the following: I have a fully licensed kitchen on my property in CA. I want to open a store front/gallery where I can show my display cakes, meet my customers, and----here's the stciky point----have a place for customers to pick up their orders.
I hate to have to go through all the hassle of the health department when I am not baking or decorating on site.
Anybody out there do anything like this before?
I am not in CA and so I am not familiar with their particulars... But, since you do not make the food there my assumption would be that you do not have to get clearance.
I would think it would be the same as selling at a Farmer's Market or Holiday Show or whatnot. Although, you may have to have everything boxed up somehow to protect it from whatever is in the air. I would definitely check with them before they show up to shut you down.
