Determine which agency licenses the food establishment here. If the food establishment in question falls directly under Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development (MDARD) jurisdiction, continue with the rest of these steps.
Before construction on the food establishment begins (when applicable) make sure to check local zoning ordinances to ensure local regulations allow for such an establishment.
Once plans have been reviewed and approved, and construction is complete, contact MDARD & Rural Development by mail or phone as shown below, to set up a final inspection. At this point you should also fill out the Food Establishment Licensing Application.
