Massachusetts Regs

Hi all - I'm trying to get started in the hot dog cart business and have been unable to find the Massachusetts state code requirements for carts. The State dept of health website isn't easy to navigate, does anyone know of a direct link to this is? Thanks so much.

    Welcome to Roadfood!
    You probably need to look at the LOCAL Health Depts. City, County or what ever you call them up there.
    In most states the Health Depts. operate on a local rather than State basis for food service businesses. 
    Check Leominster first.

    I typed in "Massachusetts mobile food code"  and got 100's of links.
     
    As Foodme stated you need to cross check the State code to the local ordinances.   There could be local requirements which are more restrictive.
