The City issues licenses covering a broad array of business activities, but not all businesses are required to be licensed.
Licenses are issued through the Division of Treasury. Procedural requirements for license issuance vary widely from one type of license to another. Contact us for more information.
Licensing of food vendors is handled by the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department. Mobile food truck vendors must obtain an additional City of Toledo license after certification by the Health Department.
