What we're about

MEHKOs are restaurants in a private residence operated by the resident and are allowed to produce a very broad variety of complex food products that the CFO permit does not allow.

On September 18, 2018, then Governor Brown signed Assembly Bill 626 (AB 626), making an amendment to the California Retail Food Code: Microenterprise Home Kitchen Operations which established “microenterprise home kitchen operation” (MEHKO) as a new category of retail food facility. MEHKOs are restaurants in a private residence operated by the resident and are allowed to produce a very broad variety of complex food products that the CFO permit does not allow.

The Governor left it up to individual counties in California to decide if they wanted to opt into this law. As of now, only one county in California is allowing MEHKOS.

I started this group so we can work on changing that. By not allowing MEHKOS , counties are denying individuals and new and exciting way to a foot in the door of there own restaurant experience. Let alone a new source of income.
