I'm trying to start a mobile retail food business in NJ. The requirements for the mobile business are more stringent than the stationary business, most notably that in addition to the 3 compartment sink and separate hand washing sink on the mobile unit, I must also have an established and approved "servicing area" that also has a 3 compartment sink and a separate utility sink or "mop sink" as the health dept. calls it, for disposal of mop water and other liquid waste and for cleaning and sanitizing all cleaning equipment. All the requirements on my mobile unit are simple and pretty cost effective for me, I have already priced out what I need and everything so far is within my budget. The problem is the "servicing area". The service area can not be a private residence, it has to be what they refer to as a "detached or attached garage" or something similar, used for such things as vehicle and equipment cleaning, discharging liquid or solid wastes, refilling water tanks and ice bins and boarding food. This makes no sense to me. I could just get a second 3 compartment sink unit and also install a single sink unit for the mop/utility usage. I could maybe see where the food storing part comes into play, but I don't see why there needs to be some separate location for this when I can just as easily store it all on the unit itself in the fridge and other locations where food would be while I'm open and selling food. This separate location can be an already established restaurant if not my own "detached or attached garage". It wouldn't be within my budget to rent some kind of location to be the servicing area, so my only option is to find a restaurant owner who would be willing to allow his kitchen to be my designated servicing area. I'm sure I could find someone willing, probably for a fee of who knows how much, considering they know I need it. My hope is to find someone willing to do it for around $1000 or maybe barter for any painting they might need done as I also own a painting business. And I would also advertise their restaurant on my mobile unit. I just think this is excessive and unnecessary. I can easily provide adequate sinks and cleaning abilities on the mobile unit. This servicing area part is really holding this back at the moment.
