Food Establishment Permit Form

There are two major steps in obtaining a food establishment permit application. The first involves filling and completing the Food Permit Application along with the submission of all necessary plans and specifications through the Food Establishment Permit Form. The second would be paying the fee at the bottom of the Food Establishment Form. The fees associated with this permit are determined based upon the size of the food establishment applying for the permit. To insure your permit is granted in the quickest time possible, please be sure to read all instructions and attach all necessary documents. Prior to being able to do business, all new businesses must obtain a Certificate of Occupancy.You can apply for a Certificate of Occupancy by attaching the application to the Certificate of Occupancy Form and paying the fee. 

Required Documents include:
  • For commercial projects, submit 3 sets of plans and specifications.
  • A plot plan, for each copy of plans and specification must be submitted with all construction documents.



As per the City of Forney Food Establishment Ordinance, the renewal application for a food establishment permit and the accompanying fee must be received by the regulatory authority on or before December 31 prior to the calendar year for which the permit is sought.  If such application and fee are not received by the date herein specified, the renewal fee due and owing shall be double the normal permit fee as set forth in subsection (d) of this section, as a late penalty for failure to comply with the requirements of this subsection.  The charging of such late fee will have no effect on the city’s right to seek criminal penalties permitted by the enforcement provision of this article.  Renewal applications shall contain the same information as provided on the application for the initial permit.
