A food pop-up host is a restaurant, bar, brewery, distillery, or winery that has entered into an agreement with a food pop-up vendor to use the host's kitchen and facilities to prepare and sell its menu, often on a recurring schedule.
This page is for pop-up hosts. Food pop-up hosts apply for a permit from the Department of Safety and Permits via the One Stop App. Pop-up vendors apply for a permit from the Bureau of Revenue (similar to the process for obtaining a Special Event vendor permit).
All businesses that sell food or other goods are required to register, obtain a license, and collect and remit taxes to the Bureau of Revenue - Sales Tax. These businesses will be mailed tax returns each month and will be required to remit the taxes to the Bureau of Revenue by the 20th of the month following the month of collection.
The sale of alcoholic beverages by the food pop-up vendor is prohibited. A food pop-up host may sell alcoholic beverages during the food pop-up if the host has the proper alcoholic beverage licenses.
There is a $50.00 initial application fee, and a $500.00 pop-up host permit fee annually (the total due the first year will be $550.00).
