Hawkers & Peddlers License
Hawkers & Peddlers Licenses are processed and approved by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. You will need to acquire a license before you can complete the permit application process. You will need to provide a copy of your Hawker's and Peddlers License to Public Works as part of the final permit application process.
Everyone who handles money on your food truck needs a license. Each money handler must fill out an application and have his or her local police chief sign the Certificate of Character. However, you need only present one Hawker & Peddler License (belonging to yourself or an employee who will work on your truck) to apply for the food truck permit.
$62 per license (every person handling money on the food truck must renew the license each year).
