Salon and food business
To operate a salon in South Carolina, you first must hold a salon license with the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation Cosmetology Board. The application fee is $100 and the license must be renewed annually. Individual employees of the salon must also hold licenses depending on the type of service they provide.
The business will also need to complete a state tax registration with the S.C. Dept. of Revenue. If you would like to serve food in the salon, you will need to hold a retail food establishment permit. These are issued by the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control. Finally, on the local level, your business must hold a business license for the City of Greenville, SC.
