    No minimum time-in-business needed. Just need to be licensed, bonded and pay a fee for the charter. They will pro-rate the amount depending on when the charter would expire (every 2 years). Just go to Tennessee's Department of Agriculture website and click on Regulatory Services. You will need a Cat.3 HLT license.

    You cant be in business without one. All you need is a license holder though and Proof of Insurance

    I agree. All you need is the license, bond, and be prepared to pay the $400.00 every two years for the charter.
