Advertisement of a restaurant


- Anyone wishing to run a restaurant must notify the competent authority at least 4 weeks before the first offering of drinks or prepared food for consumption on the spot, even if it is only to be run for a short period of time.

- This also applies to the operation of a branch, a dependent branch, to the relocation of the permanent establishment and to the extension of the offer to alcoholic beverages or prepared food.

- A restaurant business also exists if the offer of prepared food and/or beverages for consumption on the spot is commercially available as a secondary business - e.g. as a supplementary offer from a bakery, butcher's shop, etc. - or as an incentive to consume.

Process flow

- You inform the competent authority using the form in accordance with the annex to § 2 paragraph 2 NGastG that you want to run a restaurant business.

- In doing so, you indicate whether you also want to sell alcoholic beverages. In this case, you must additionally

  • enclose proof that you have submitted an application for a certificate of good conduct in accordance with Section 30 (5) of the Federal Central Register Act and
  • submit information from the Central Trade Register in accordance with Section 150 (1) of the Industrial Code.

- If you have notified the restaurant, the competent authority will transmit the information from it to the authorities responsible for building supervision, immission control, youth protection, food monitoring and the fight against undeclared work and illegal employment, as well as to the tax office.

Who should I contact?

This procedure can also be handled by a "Point of Single Contact". The "Point of Single Contact" is a special service offered by the municipalities and the state for service providers.

Competent authority

The municipality in whose local area of responsibility the operation is to be commenced.

Which documents are required?

  • Identity card or comparable identity document
  • If applicable, power of attorney
  • If applicable, residence permit
  • In the case of legal entities, an extract from the commercial register or association register or a copy of the shareholders' agreement or the articles of association
  • In case of alcohol served:
    • Proof of the application for the issuance of a certificate of good conduct in accordance with Section 30 (5) of the Federal Central Register Act (BZRG) as well as
    • Information from the Central Trade Register in accordance with Section 150 (1) of the Industrial Code (GewO) or
    • an official certificate of verification of reliability under trade law provided for by law.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

- Before you are allowed to run a restaurant, you must notify the competent authority at least 4 weeks in advance.

- The authority may permit an earlier start of the restaurant business if compliance with the deadline is not reasonable for the operator.

Notification Period: 4 Weeks
before commencing work
