Full Service Restaurant
All restaurants and food establishments must be licensed and pass regular health inspections to assure that the facility meets food safety standards. This applies to restaurants that sell food to the public from a set address, including bed and breakfasts.

License
You must obtain a plan review and license before opening a new restaurant or remodeling a restaurant. Also, you must contact us if your menu changes or if you are changing ownership. Bed and breakfasts must also obtain a lodging permit.

Renew
Licenses are good for one calendar year. Renew your license by paying the license fee by January 1 of each year.

Inspections
Environmental health specialists conduct two routine unannounced inspections per year to ensure compliance with Oregon’s Food Sanitation Rules. Follow-up inspections are conducted on any facility where a public health risk is identified. Inspections focus on food temperatures, food preparation practices, worker hygiene, dishwashing and sanitizing, equipment, and facility cleanliness.
Restaurant Inspection Scores are public record. A restaurant must receive a score of 70 to pass the inspection. Scores are published on a bulletin board at the North Bend Annex, on a the main floor just past the elevator, at 1975 McPherson Street, North Bend.

Food handler cards are required for all restaurant workers. You can take the test online.
