What is the Process for Openning a Funeral Home?


What is the process for openning a funeral home in my community(St. Paul, MN)?

The first place to start would be with the local zoning board. Is the location zoned for commercial use as a funeral home? What are the state and local requirements for licensing and registering the business? Are you licensed by the state to practice Funeral Directing and Embalming? Does your location comply with Americans with Disabilities Act? Will your location pass an OSHA inspection?

Another source for local information would be your states' funeral directors association.
