That I understand, but that wasn't my question. .... A cart is no different than a BBQ grill/smoker on wheels. So if someone can cook raw meat, prepare & serve the food from a BBQ grill/smoker (or like equipment) serving burgers, pulled pork & chicken at fairs, events or parking lots, then why can't this be done from a Cart?
, it appears that Florida has a "hotdog only" type of MFDV license and thus restricts the vendor to frankfurters only. So by obtaining the regular MFDV food permit, why can't burgers, pulled pork and other foods be prepare and served the same as any other MFDV vendor from a cart. .... I know you would still have meet the HD requirements for serving the food being prepared and sold.
What I'm thinking of is a vendor using a step-side van equipped with frig & freezer; generator; washing & cleaning space; food storage & supplies; and pulling a "cart" (may be a big TopDog style). Minimum setup and conversion required to the Van. .....
The vendor pulls into a location; .... rolls out a side awning or opens a hard top awning from the van side; .... unhooks the cart and moves it under the awning; .... and he is open for business serving burgers, pulled pork, fried bologna sandwiches, deep fried chicken, french fries, cold slaw and whatever else he is legal to sell the same a "Bubba Bob's" fishing club at a local event cooking off of a 55 gal oil drum grill.
