As a restaurant business owner, you have plenty on your plate. High regulations in the food service industry can mean big problems if things go wrong. There are numerous legal and regulatory hoops to jump through to secure financing, obtain required licenses, and comply with health requirements. CT is the trusted partner you need to help handle it all, so you can focus on your guests.
Complying with federal, state and local regulations can be daunting and include everything from liquor licenses to food establishment permits to building permits. For small restaurants, this regulatory territory can be unfamiliar and confusing. And the larger your business, the more complex the legal and regulatory requirements. We constantly monitor regulatory changes that can affect your business and have the insight to know what’s around the corner.
We manage the lifecycle of all your business licenses and provide ongoing support for exceptions to your core business license program.
Easily track and maintain your business license data with our secure web application.
For most businesses, it’s not a question of whether you need a license, but how many you need. Beyond fines or penalties, failure to obtain and renew the right licenses can have far-reaching consequences like lien issues and even forced closures. CT offers a range of business license services to help you stay in compliance and focus on your business.
As your business grows, so will your regulatory burden. You may have to secure rights from a music licensing organization in order to be compliant with federal laws. Or, be ready with the required disclosure documents for any prospective franchise purchaser. With each new opportunity to expand your business, CT will be there to help you succeed. And our service teams are just a phone call away for any needs you have—even if you’re not quite sure what they are yet.
CT's Electronic Filing tools lets you submit, confirm and monitor your annual report filings online. Plus, our experienced service teams are here to help you, and answer your questions.
