Mobile Business Unit (MBU) means a business operating from a motor vehicle, temporary structure or display, or stand. These types of businesses would include:
- food trucks
- fruit stands
- ice cream bike(s)/truck(s)
MBUs that are used to produce, cook, sell or distribute food, and have a secondary heat source (whether gas, propane, or electric) may require additional permitting. See our Mobile Cooking Operations page to find out more.
If you are a vendor operating in Red Deer solely as part of a market or special event, you will not require a Business Licence.
There are additional criteria for MBUs, outlined below.
