Espresso Bar's are relatively new fad. But since they are doing business as a restaurant they will have to be licensed as such.
Kansas City barbeques are famous, tasty, but not so easy to start. Because Kansas City sits on four different counties, licensing and permitting is extraordinarily complex. Many businesses - particularly those selling food, alcohol or producing hazardous waste - often require city, county and state licenses. Depending on the area of Kansas City in which a business operates, the licensing requirements can vary widely. As a result, city officials have a very difficult time advising entrepreneurs and a small business owner can easily find him or herself in a quandary. Although at one time, the cattle trade, agriculture and river transportation were once the dominant industries of Kansas City, today the city has a diverse economy. Kansas City is now home to major companies in communications, food, manufacturing, agriculture, restaurant and greeting card industries.
