Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will try to help you. Please remember I just report or interpret the law, so the outcome may not be what you hoped for.
When you say a food business could you explain exactly the type of business you have in mind? For example is it catering or selling food like a grocery store?
Thanks, ***** ***** do some research and get back to you.
You do not need a specific license for food service businesses such as restaurants or catering. However, you will need a food services certification from the local health department. In addition you will need a sales and use tax certificate. You may also need a sales tax resale certificate if you will be buying food for resale as opposed to preparation. Here is a link to a CT website that will provide you the guidance that you need as you refine precisely what your business will look like.
