Restaurant & Food Establishment Inspections

Denver is the host to approximately 5,000 food businesses. These businesses include restaurants, bars, convenience stores, bakeries, dairies, grocery stores, and much more. The Food Safety Program is designed to reduce the incidence of food-borne disease, commonly called food poisoning, through inspection of food businesses, education of those working with food, investigation of complaints, enforcement of regulations that affect the safety of food, and education of consumers about food safety.


Effective September 3, 2022, all new and existing mobile unit operators will be required to submit the mobile plan review packet for new units and the mobile renewal packet for existing units. The last day in-person inspection for the Denver Department of Public Health & Environment will take place on Friday, September 2.
