There are over 40,000 different licensing jurisdictions in the United States. To put that number into perspective, if there was a jurisdiction for every mile from the North Pole to the South Pole you would walk around the world twice before visiting them all.
To make matters more complicated each of these jurisdictions set their own standards as to the licensing they require from businesses; standards that can vary from every county in the state of Texas. Because of these complications this blog will not discuss the specific licensing required of your Dallas Fort Worth vending company but rather the importance of having a properly licensed vendor within DFW.
That being said there are some licenses in Dallas Fort Worth that are standard. These include:
• Federal tax ID
• State tax ID/resale permit
• County licenses
Some of these you may be familiar with in your own place of business, which is one of the reasons you should care if your vending company in Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) is licensed; it seems only fair that if you pay your taxes, so should they. However, more importantly then the profit the government makes off of businesses or the sense of what’s “fair” are the other two intertwined reasons why licensing exits:
1. Licensing keeps businesses accountable for their actions
2. Licensing holds businesses to health and safety codes
You want to work with a Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) vendor who is accountable. Honesty is a character definition and it stands to reason that if a company is honest with the government there is a higher chance they’ll be honest with you about their service and commissions you garnish off their vending machines.
Furthermore, vending offers a variety of food. If you walk into a restaurant or a grocery store you expect them to abide by certain sanitary codes. You want those establishments to be rodent and bug free, to use clean equipment, etc. By choosing a Dallas Forth Worth vending company who is properly licensed you are ensuring that they are being held accountable for the way they handle your food.
Here are some things that inspectors look for:
• Food is kept off the floor
• There are no signs of unwanted creatures
• Refrigerated and frozen products are properly stored
