Household Services such as Housekeeping, Gardening, Landscaping and Auto Detailing may not require as many licenses as food and healthcare businesses, but they must be licensed nonetheless. Businesses that use a person’s home as their official address or office may also need a Home Occupation Permit from their city or county.
Lexington, Kentucky has long been known as the capitol of thoroughbred horse breeding. The Lexington area's long history of "gentleman farming" led to a strong livestock industry. Later, the city became home to the University of Kentucky which remains the city's largest employer. Entrepreneurs looking to join the Lexington economy will find relatively simple and few licenses from the local city-county combined government. Instead, more licensing is done at the state level.
