Licensing of Itinerant Vendors in Houston, Texas
Itinerant vendors (street vendors) are required to be licensed by the city’s Administration and Regulatory Affairs department.
As a prerequisite for licensing, you must also obtain a $10,000 surety bond.
According to city regulations, your surety bond must be active for the duration of your permit, and for two years afterwards.
Or, to be more precise, 2 years and 7 days.
Qualifying and the Premium
You are automatically approved for the $10,000 Houston itinerant vendor bond. There is no credit check, and the bond is issued to you for 2 years at $180, and for 2 years and 7 days for $182.
When you call us, issuing your surety bond will take a few minutes.
We’ll just need the name and contact information (which should match the other paperwork that you’ll be filing with the city).
After paying the premium of $180/2, our agency issues your bond and a Power of Attorney form to you.
Upon receipt of the original documents by mail, you’ll sign your bond as Principal, and then file your bond and POA form to:
