Food Service License Fees to Increase in 2018

In 2016, the Colorado Legislature modified the Food Protection Act to increase the licensing fees for restaurants, delis, catering operations, grocery stores, food trucks, push carts and other retail food establishments.  The increased fees were to be phased in over three years. The second phase of the increase, to take effect on September 1, 2017, will increase the cost for a retail food license an average of $31. On September 1, 2018, the third and final phase of the fee increase is to become effective. Any new establishments opening after September 1, 2017 will be subject to the new fees. Currently operating establishments will see an increase in their license fees at the time of license renewal.
