Regarding Temporary Food Permits - 

* PLEASE NOTE * To allow adequate time for scheduling inspections with Health and Fire Inspectors, applicants are encouraged to submit this application 14 days prior to the scheduled event. Incomplete applications and applications submitted less than three (3) days prior to the event may not be approved.

  In the case of food trucks/trailers, inspections scheduled as far in advance as possible allow time for corrections to be made should a unit fail inspection. Food trucks/trailers that do not have a passing fire inspection will not be allowed to operate at the temporary event and will be required to remove the unit from the premises.

  Application for a permit does not guarantee that a permit will be granted. Permit approval is based upon compliance with state and local health ordinances, and with other applicable departmental requirements. 

Retail Food Establishment Inspection Reports

The City of Seguin Planning/Codes Department is responsible for performing inspections at retail food establishments. Each retail food establishment operating in the city of Seguin is subject to routine inspections every six months. Retail food establishments include a variety of locations, including:

  • restaurants
  • school cafeterias
  • grocery stores
  • convenience stores
  • hotels, and
  • bars

If an establishment receives an unacceptable score, a re-inspection is required and corrections must be made to bring the score into the acceptable range in accordance with the Texas Food Establishment Rules. If subsequent inspections scores are unacceptable, compliance actions will be taken.

The information on this site is designed to give consumers an indication of a food establishment's sanitation level during a routine inspection performed by the Planning/Codes Department. The inspection results provide consumers a look at an establishment's sanitation and procedures at the time of the inspection. It should not be assumed that the inspection results reflect how an establishment always operates. Consumers may draw their own conclusions from the information on this site.

While every effort is made to keep the information on this website accurate and up-to-date, the City of Seguin is not responsible for discrepancies between information posted here and Restaurant Inspection Reports on file at food establishment premises.
