I have found a lot of posts where people have been successful getting permits in various MA towns.  Has anyone been successful in Methuen?  I was told I had to have a completely separate commercial kitchen in my home.

AHello, I am in Dracut and I was asked to have a separate kitchen too. I turned a garage into a kitchen.]

I'm right outside of Boston, and my town allows you to use your own kitchen but there's rules and regulations as to what you can/cannot have.  I can't be licensed because I have dogs.  If I wanted to, I'd have to build a separate kitchen.

Sounds like you might need a separate kitchen.  My town allows for in-home baking but the next town over does not, because they have septic tanks and well water.

Call the Methuen Health Dept; they'll let you know their policy. Every town in MA is different it seems. I'm in Newburyport and had no problem getting my home kitchen licensed.


Good luck
