Becoming a mobile food vendor
Does my Thai girlfriend need a license to sell hot food from a street cart in Patong?

I’m sorry but Patong Municipality will not issue any new licenses for street food vendors. This has been government policy since the tsunami.
We have made a few exceptions but only for a few villagers to sell food in front of Baan Kalim School.
If your girlfriend would like to sell hot food, I recommend that she sells it at a private plot, and not in a public area such as on the street or on the beach.
