chicago fire departmentTo help mobile food vehicle license applicants prepare for the Department of Public Health (CDPH) and, if applicable*, Chicago Fire Department (CFD) inspections, they are providing a FREE Mobile Food Vehicle (MFV) Assessment prior to submitting an application.

The MFV Assessment consists of a mobile food vehicle review by CDPH and CFD inspectors, who will provide applicants with an inspection report explaining the results of their compliance assessment.  A Business Consultant from our department will be onsite to assist with the process, and coordinate any additional services.

MFV Assessments are conducted by appointment only.  To make an appointment, contact them by phone at (312) 74-GOBIZ / 744-6249, or by submitting an online request at this link.

* Mobile food vehicles equipped with propane or natural gas system, fire suppression hood and/or a generator, are required to be inspected by the Chicago Fire Department.
