Why You Should Hire a Liquor License Broker to Obtain a License


Are you opening a business and looking to obtain a liquor license, or closing a business and looking to sell a liquor license? The process of buying, obtaining, and selling a liquor license can be frustrating. We know that there’s lots of red tape involved, and it’s common than you’d think to make mistakes early on in the process that can cost you later. Not only does a liquor license cost thousands of dollars, and sometimes even up to $1 million, there are quite a few sneaky fees and time-eating tasks involved. You might be wondering exactly what the application process entails, how to find what liquor licenses are available, and how exactly you obtain one. Or maybe you’re looking to lease or sell a liquor license, but the process is too confusing to parse out all the details. And that’s where Liquor License Advisor comes in.


Hiring a liquor license broker can help you avoid mistakes by taking some of the work off of your plate and guiding you through the application process, or the process of selling your liquor license. Think of us as a handy middleman. The liquor license application process is no joke, and we take it more seriously than anyone. We pride ourselves on educating you about all things relating to beer, wine, and liquor. We’ll map out fees, best business moves, and advise you throughout the journey. We know the liquor control laws in numerous states backwards and forwards, including all of the local rules and regulations. Ultimately, hiring a liquor license broker will ensure a smoother application process by arming you with knowledge and understanding.


At Liquor License Advisor, we can help you figure out exactly what type of liquor license you need to buy. We also help you deal with the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) in your state so that there’s less confusion for you. And even though the process of buying a liquor license can take up to a year, when you hire a liquor license broker, you save time and money in the long run. We’ll make sure that your application is as accurate as possible, down to the very last detail.  Not only that, but we’ll ensure that you’re getting the best deal possible.


We won’t simply jump on the first liquor license that’s available in the area where you want to open your business. We’ll do our due diligence, and assess the best options out there. Then, we’ll monitor the market and let you know when a liquor license that’s perfect for your needs is available.

We Save You Time


Hiring a liquor license broker can also be the push you need to complete the process efficiently. The people who work at the ABC are busy, and it’s not uncommon for things to get delayed. We’ll remind you to check in, follow up, and advocate for yourself so that the process gets done as quickly as possible. We can guide you through the whole ABC process, and lead you in the right direction. And hey, that might even shave off a few months for you! Sometimes happy hour comes early, right?

In addition to preparing you for the application process and answering any questions that you have, we’ll also make sure that you have all the materials you need including:


• Business License

• Sales Tax Permit

• Zoning Permit

• Alcohol Tax Permit

• Health Permit

• A Certificate of Good Standing from the Secretary of State

• A Signed Lease Agreement to confirm the location of your business

• Financial verification sheets to prove that you’re in good tax standing

• Any potential processing fees required by your state
