Default Setting up a fish and chip van in France

Hi guys,

As well as being a project manager i was thinking it could be quite fun to setup a fish and chip van. Maybe focussing on festivals or just become regular in a handful of towns in normandy.

Anyone know the legalities of doing this in terms of health & safety etc?

Thanks
Phil

Now Smeg is the person to answer this question
Firstly you would have to set up a business entity probably as an AE Then attend a course on book keeping and self employment law then a course on hygiene and food regulations Both these would be in French Then you need to source a suitable catering vehicle and arrange insurance to cover the vehicle and public liability Then you would need permission to trade from the local Marie Then when you start trading you will be paying cotisations and taxes on anything you make
If after that you still decide that it could be fun then I suggest consulting the chamber of commerce for your area www.cci.fr

The French can't say crisps which is why they call them chips. Might get confusing.

I think setting up a B&B in Spain would be a good idea
