Steps to Success

Permits & Licenses

Your business may need to obtain business licenses or professional licenses depending on its business activities.  Illinois provides a comprehensive database of every license and permit that may be required for your business. In addition, local regulations, including licenses, building permits, and zoning clearances, may apply to your business. You will also need to check with your city and county governments for more information -- see the provider pages for your community.

The Champaign-Urbana Public Health District general information page includes not only important information about permits and licenses for foodservice businesses but also for businesses in Champaign, Urbana, or Champaign County that require items like liquor licenses or video gaming licenses.
