Remember, if you want to become a tea room, you cannot simply start serving tea. After hiring the architect (see earlier post) you will then have to begin the permitting phase. You will need to complete the forms to become a food establishment, even if you are serving just a small group of people. Don't be overwhelmed: take it step by step and stay in touch with your Board of Health and your Building Inspector. Before you know it, you will be getting ready for the big meetings! You will also have to become a Common Victualler which will require a permit. So gather your forms, make a nice cup of tea, and enjoy the process! More soon! :) Thanks for stopping by.
