YOU HAD A GREAT IDEA for a new product or
service. You built a prototype; got certified;
maybe you even quit your day job. You tested
it out on friends, relatives, and coworkers.
Everybody loved your idea–in fact, they even
suggested you go into business and start
profiting from your product or service.
You took a deep breath, conjured up all your
courage and decided to become your own boss.

Now what?

This guide is designed to help you navigate
the many rules, regulations, permitting
processes and other steps on your way to
opening your business in the City of
Vacaville. We hope you find this information
helpful, informative, and worth sharing with
other budding entrepreneurs!

Good luck, and we welcome your business
to the City!
