Pasadena Accessory Food Service Ordinance Development

The City of Pasadena’s proposed Accessory Food Service Ware Ordinance will likely include these key measures:

  1. Restaurants and other food service providers shall only provide accessory food service ware upon the request of the customer.
  2. Third-party, app-based delivery platforms shall include on their platforms an option for customers to affirmatively request food service accessories.
  3. This ordinance shall not preclude restaurants and other food service providers from asking customers if they would like accessories with their order, or providing self-service dispensers.

The draft ordinance will be presented to the Municipal Service Committee on March 23, 2021. The agenda can be viewed at
