Licensing

A bakery is defined as any place, premises, or establishment where any bakery product is regularly prepared, processed, or manufactured for sale other than for consumption at the place where originally prepared. 

Bakery products include

  • Bread
  • Rolls
  • Cakes
  • Pies
  • Doughnuts
  • Cookies
  • Biscuits
  • Crackers
  • All similar goods to be used for human food

Bakery license required

  • Bakery departments that are a part of multi-department grocery stores
  • Bakery department that regularly purchases bakery goods that require heating and possibly icing and packaging

Bakery license not required

  • Retail store purchasing bakery goods that do not require further processing (a retail license is sufficient). For example, convenience stores that carry packaged breads and purchase donuts that are delivered in bulk.

Bakery distributor license

A bakery distributor is a person or a business other than a bakery who sells, markets, or distributes any bakery products. Bakery distributors may operate a business independent of any bakery where they purchase packaged baked goods from a large bakery, warehouse the purchased products for a short amount of time, and run a route to stores not serviced by a large distributor. The bakery distributor license covers both the delivery truck and the warehouse. If a licensee is warehousing and distributing foods other than bakery goods, a warehouse license is required.

Bakery foodservice

If a bakery produces products primarily for consumption on the premises, which is foodservice, then the bakery is licensed by the local county health department. Examples include donut shops and restaurants that prepare pies and other desserts to be consumed primarily at the restaurant.
