Hello, I run a self-serve frozen yogurt store/shop in a

Customer Question


I run a self-serve frozen yogurt store/shop in a shopping mall in California.
Now, I am planning to open another frozen-yogurt location in the same mall in a Kiosk. New note will be a kiosk in food court; not a shop/store.

For the new location (Kiosk), do I need to get new building, health, water and fire permits? OR Teh existing permits taken for my old location ("shop") will suffice for the new location "kiosk". Both locations are about 200 feet away in the same shopping mall.
