Food Licenses for Small Concession Stands

We have the honor of operating an additional small aquatic facility again this summer. Has anyone found information that either requires or exempts a Food License for a concession stand which only serves packaged items (candy, jerky sticks, cheese crackers, etc.) but it doesn't prepare food items? The items don't require refrigeration or freezing. And, there aren't any unpackaged items touched by employees.

At the KS Dept. of Agriculture's site regarding food licensing, there doesn't appear to be any specific information about concession stands that only sell packaged, unprepared food.

Has anyone ever come across information about food licensing and small concession operations?

Thanks!

    We looked into this at one point, and I believe we still needed to obtain a license. I don't have any documentation - just going off memory, so I could be wrong.
