Unlike in many states, Florida businesses usually need general business licenses at the state, county and city levels. Additionally, Floridians can expect significant numbers of licenses and permits at the state and county levels, while cities usually minimally regulate. Florida has particularly extensive healthcare and food licensing and includes regulation over specialties such as kosher foods.
In Florida, when you scream, I scream and we all scream for ice cream, somebody may need a permit. In many cities including New York and Philadelphia, the sale of frozen desserts are specifically regulated and require special inspections and permits.
