How do I apply for a mobile food business licence?

Mobile food vehicles are required to have one food business licence from the council area where the vehicle is registered and garaged. This one licence allows them to operate in any Queensland Council area.

We will only licence a mobile food vehicle registered to an address within the City of Logan. You must provide proof of the registered address with your application.

Before applying, find out any limitations, restriction or if any permits are needed to trade from your proposed location.
