    CALGOLD database or the California Business Permitting Database has the info on where you need to go and what licenses and permits you need to get. They don't have a catering business listed, but do the food manufacturing since that is essentially catering http://www.calgold.ca.gov Health Permit - Food Service: Contact: County of Sacramento Environmental Health Department 8475 Jackson Road, Ste. 230 Sacramento, CA 95814 916-875-8550 The Health Dept will check your kitchen if it is commercial. Residential kitchens hardly makes the grade. You will need a commercial kitchen before you can get license to operate Other requirements include Business License: Required if business located within incorporated city limits Contact: City of Sacramento City Finance, Revenue Department Business License 730 I Street, Room 114 Sacramento, CA 95814 916-808-8500 Fire Prevention Information/Inspection: Businesses may be subject to a yearly inspection of facility - annual fee may be charged. Contact: City of Sacramento City Fire Department 5770 Freeport Blvd., Suite #200 Sacramento, CA 95822 916-433-1300 Fictitious Business Name Filing: Required if fictitious business name is used. Contact: County of Sacramento Treasurer Tax Collector's Office Fictitious Business Name 700 H Street Sacramento, CA 95814 916-874-6644 ... and others. Check CALGOLD
