Mobile Food Truck Inspection Information

Mobile Food Truck Inspection Information

Do you own a mobile food truck/ trailer or intend to hire one for a private event? Streetsboro Fire Department requires an annual inspection on all mobile food units operating within the City of Streetsboro in order to ensure safe operations to the staff and the public. Even if there are no cooking operations being conducted with the unit, a fire inspection is still required.

The process only takes a few minutes and each passing inspection is good for the entire calendar year. Although there may be cost associated with obtaining a permit for operating a mobile food unit at some venues, our fire inspections are at no charge.

For more information on our requirements, please contact our Fire Prevention & Investigations Bureau at 330-626-4664 or email us at


Inspections begin after New Year’s Day. Contact the Fire Prevention and Investigations Bureau for availability.

Food truck operations during the first seven days of the year may be inspected prior to the beginning of the new year provided:

  • Confirmation provided on date, time, and location of event within the first seven days of the new year.
  • Inspection is scheduled and conducted between December 1 & December 21 of the previous year (December 2022 inspection for January 1-7, 2023 operation).

Food truck inspections are generally scheduled between 7:30AM and 1:30PM weekdays. Consideration is provided for special events and circumstances on an individual basis. No food truck shall operate within the City of Streetsboro without a valid current calendar year inspection certificate.
