Business License

The City of Norman is happy to announce that all food, beverage, and medical marijuana Business Licensing is now available through an online portal. This will allow new and current Business owners to apply and renew their licenses online.

Note:  Credit/ACH/e-check payment types all have applicable fees that will apply to a transaction.  Those fees are charged by the processor and not the City of Norman for this service of payment types.  Cash and Check can be accepted at the City offices. 

Helpful tips:

  • Register your current or new Business License online by logging into the portal, once you have registered you will receive a link to verify/confirm your email address.
