Buying, Building, Remodeling a Restaurant?

Permits do not transfer from owner to owner. Save time and money – contact the Wake County Plan Review Section at 919-856-7440 before you buy, build or remodel to find out what the requirements are.

How often are restaurants inspected?

Restaurants get inspected one to four times a year, depending on their menu items and food processes.


If you have a concern about something you see in a restaurant, speak to the manager directly. This is the best way to deal with a problem. If you still have concerns, you may also call us at 919-856-7400 to file a complaint.
