There is an exciting new concept in food service. Environmental Health works with industry to understand and adapt to the rapidly changing face of the food industry. One of these recent changes is the new concept of "micro markets."
What is a micro market? A micro market is an unattended, self-checkout food facility located inside of an enclosed building and available to a known group of employees at their work location. Employees can access prepackaged food directly and then pay for their selection at a kiosk.
Since micro markets have similar layouts, business owners can have a “standard plan” approved by our Plan Check Program and use that plan for future micro markets at other business locations. When using an approved standard plan, the business owner can apply for the permit directly to our Specialized Food Services Program.
Please refer to the Micro Markets: Guidelines and Standard Plan Approval and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s), for more details.
Our Specialized Food Service Program staff can be reached at (626) 430-5421, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
