One of the first steps you must take is to develop a commercial food facility plan. It’s likely that this will involve knowledge and skills that you—the owner—may not understand or want to get involved in.

Northbay Restaurant Design has helped over 800 retail food facility operators get their plans successfully approved over the past 20 years. We can help with a complete restaurant floor plan, commercial kitchen hood drawing or even mobile food facilities design.

As specialists in commercial kitchen design, we have helped other food facility owners get their retail food facility plan approved by the El Dorado County Health Department. We can help you, too, and the process begins with a free site consultation by phone. We can often visit your proposed restaurant site within 24-48 hours to get things started so you can open quickly.

We Specialize in Food Facility Plans that Meet County Health Department Food Permit Requirements

If you want your restaurant plan approved quickly so you can open your retail food facility more quickly, we can help you meet requirements under the California Retail Food Code. 


Each county health department creates its own processes and resources to help food facility owners like you understand how to get food facility plans approved.

The El Dorado County Department of Environmental Management issues requirements for retail food facilities to use in the construction process.

Included are an overall guide as well as a planning checklist to help you ensure that your plan is in compliance with state and county health laws.
