Food truck

Hello dear listeners, wonderful users, wise citizens!

I would like to ask you further information about starting a food truck, itinerant activity in Switzerland.
I need practical advice.

I read on the newspaper that Geneve and Lausanne (my actual domicile) authorized this kind of restaurant even in the center of the city.
I checked also this old post: Food trucks in Zurich but it doesn't have any of the information that I am looking for, so I have posted a new thread!

My questions are: What is the procedure needed to open this activity?
Which permits and documents the chamber of commerce requires?
It is compulsory to have a license? In which cases is not? (if I don't want to sell alcoholic beverages, for example)
Where I can read the hygiene code?

Any your suggestion will be really appreciated!
If anyone of you readers want to start the same business, don't hesitate to contact me!

Re: Food truck

Hi there, get yourself along to the Street Food Festival http://www.streetfoodfest.ch/de/home and talk to some of the truck owners there for first hand advice.

Re: Food truck

Hi,
I am also looking into this business idea.
Have you had any luck so far ? I'm just starting to look but drawing a blank so far.

Any help would be appreciated and of course would help if needed or share ideas.

Re: Food truck

The police usually have a department in charge of such things. Start at your local station and they'll be able to get you started on your journey through the forest of red tape.

Re: Food truck

For those who may be interested, in Trelex there is a weekly schedule of food trucks in the parking lot of the boulangerie

Monday - Thai from Thaitham
Tuesday - Pizza from Polopizza
Thursday - Fish & Chips from Ty Nico

I would hazard a guess there is something on Wednesday as well but have not passed by. The Thai is very good

Re: Food truck

The problem with food-trucks is that currently a lot of people work from home - potentially far away from Zurich.
