Online License Renewal Instructions - Food Safety and Lodging

Thank you for visiting our Food Safety and Lodging program online license renewal instructions page.


These instructions are for renewing existing food safety and lodging licenses only.

Below are the steps to renew your license online. Please keep this window open to reference while completing your online renewal. Please click the following link to start the renewal process.

Renewals in April are assessed a $25 late fee. Licenses not renewed by April 30 must reapply and pay the License Application Fee in addition to the License Fee.

Please note that a printed copy of your license should be displayed for public viewing in your establishment, but the official record of your license is maintained in the KDA license system. Due to system issues, PDF or hard copies of your license may be significantly delayed. Delivery delays do not affect your official license status. To minimize issues with receiving your license copy, do not close your internet browser before completing all 15 steps below.

If your business entity (other than sole proprietorship or general partnership) is required to register with the Kansas Secretary of State, please confirm it is Active and in Good Standing.
