Mobile Business Unit (MBU) means a motor vehicle, push cart or temporary structure used for the purpose of selling products, including food, and is capable of being moved from location to location. Types of MBUs could include:
- food trucks

Food service MBUs that are used to produce, cook, sell or distribute food, and have a secondary heat source (whether gas, propane, or electric) may require additional permitting. See our Mobile Cooking Operations page to find out more.
If you are a vendor operating in Red Deer solely as part of a market or special event, you will not require a Business Licence.
