Home Kitchen Operations (Watch) – FAILED 

CS/HB 707 (Learned) and CS/SB 1158 (Jones) define “home kitchen operations” as a person or business entity that sells directly from their home to the consumer any food product (excluding raw milk and raw oysters). The bills exempt these operations from the requirements imposed on traditional public food service establishments. Additionally, the bills specify that local governments are preempted from directly regulating these operations; however, they must comply with any applicable home-based business regulations. A home kitchen operation cannot exceed annual gross sales of $250,000 and is limited to producing 10 individual meals per day. (Taggart)
