Supervisory License Waiting List Eligibility Information

Under a new local law, there are a limited number of supervisory licenses available. You must be on a waiting list and wait for your position number to be reached to get a supervisory license application. The citywide and non-Manhattan supervisory license waiting lists will open in November 2022 for:

  • Vendors who were on a waiting list for a full-term citywide or borough-specific permit
  • Vendors who have continuously held a mobile food vending license from March 1, 2017 through February 28, 2021.

Enter your eight-digit license number in the search tool to see if you are eligible to join a supervisory license waiting list. You can find this number on your license ID card.

If you are eligible, the Health Department will mail you a letter and an application in the middle of November. You will have 30 days to choose the citywide or non-Manhattan supervisory license waiting list.

The waiting list for a citywide supervisory license for U.S. veterans and people with disabilities will open in 2023. Licensed vendors will be notified when the waiting list application opens.
