Application and Rules

The Brazoria County Parks Department is responsible for processing county beach and county park vendor permit applications when a mobile vendor business is conducted at one of our parks or on the Follett's Island beach in an area between the line of mean low tide and the natural vegetation line on the sand. Mobile businesses behind the vegetation line are prohibited by the dune protection ordinance.

Brazoria County has approximately 13 miles of beach in its jurisdiction. The county and state law allows for vendors to be stationary on the beach during the day, but each evening at dusk you must remove your concession off the beach. NO ONE WILL BE ALLOWED TO KEEP THEIR UNITS ON THE BEACH OVERNIGHT.

Brazoria County is interested in vendors that provide a needed service to the beach visitor, such as food and drinks. Each application will be reviewed and rated on its usefulness to the beach visitor, its attractiveness, cleanliness, quality and quantity of items, and frequency of service.

If a vendor is interested in selling at one of our staffed beach parks (Quintana or San Luis Pass), they must contact that specific park directly, after receiving their permit from the Brazoria County Parks Department headquarters office in Angleton.

Sale or rental of motorized equipment or vehicles of any kind is prohibited.

Penalty for operating an unlicensed business on a public beach can be up to $200.

For more information, and to begin the process towards becoming a vendor, please see the Beach Vendor Application, and the Vendor Checklist.
