If you are interested in opening a restaurant, bar, hotel, nightclub, or another establishment that serves, produces, or sells alcohol wholesale, you are on the correct landing page! A New York State liquor license must first be acquired to perform any of the above and can be a fairly complex process to navigate. Due to this office’s frequent intake and processing of liquor license applications, we can confidently state that we understand the process involved, know which pitfalls to avoid and exactly how to move the state’s screening forward. As many are aware, there is massive earning potential when adding a liquor license to your business’ name! Sometimes a liquor license is also necessary for a business. Why jump through hoops yourself when our office can do all the heavy lifting? 


The Licensing Process


There are four main groups of liquor licenses one can acquire in New York State such as: on-premises licenses, off-premises licenses, manufacturing licenses, wholesale licenses (all of which have numerous types of licenses within each group). Even further, each license type has a different set of application requirements which can become complicated and overwhelming. This is where we step in. 


At your free consultation with our firm, we will help identify which license is the most appropriate for your business. The application process requires that every owner of the business be licensed and details on every investor are disclosed. Applicants must also be aware that this process can take anywhere from 6 months to a year depending on the complexity of the matter. Compared to other states in the region, New York’s rules are far more comprehensive when applying for a liquor license. Whether it is the restaurant’s proximity to a school, local government resistance, or the way in which the restaurant intends to process liquor purchases, there are plenty of details along the way which can be overlooked and elongate the process. Thousands of dollars can be expended if errors are made and may also prevent your business from operating at its full potential. Our office can help you avoid these hiccups. 


In light of the complex application process, many business owners contact our firm so they can place their efforts elsewhere while we deal with the state. Our firm also assists many business owners with liquor license violations which can be extremely debilitating. If you are interested in applying for a liquor license or have been issued a liquor license violation, please do not hesitate to contact our firm today and a member of our staff will quickly assist you. Consultations are always FREE and we would be happy to speak with you and

take your business to the next level!
