FAQ

Have questions about buying or selling a liquor license in California? Read below to get the information you need for assistance with your liquor license process.

Do I need a liquor license?

The answer to that question depends entirely on what sort of business you are running, what you’re intending to sell, and in what capacity. Some classic examples of companies that require liquor licenses are liquor stores, bars and night clubs. However, there are several other types of businesses that may require a liquor license, such as grocery stores.

What type liquor license do I need?

This is an excellent question – one that many people do not ever think to ask. Unfortunately, what many would-be liquor license holders do not consider is that there is no catch-all liquor license in California. Different types of businesses require different types of liquor licenses. This can make the process of getting a license a bit more complicated when you don’t have any guidance in which license would work best for your respective business. Fortunately, we are here to help! Contact one of our agents for liquor license consulting, or read on for more information.

Which types of licenses do you sell?

Currently, LiquorLicenseAgents.com sells the following types of liquor licenses: Type 20, Type 21, Type 41, Type 47 and Type 48. To read more about what the different types are, and for which business types they are most applicable, please click here.

In which counties in California do you offer your services?

LiquorLicenseAgents.com operates in all cities and counties in California for all your liquor license needs. However, our most popular and competitive markets that we work in are Orange County, San Diego County, Los Angeles County and San Francisco County.

Can’t I just apply for a liquor license directly through my local city government?

Yes, you absolutely can! However, the process can be a long, difficult road (which is especially true for places like San Francisco, Orange County, San Diego and Los Angeles). Also, the other major caveat is that some counties in California, such as San Francisco, do not issue liquor licenses directly anymore because of an oversaturation in the market. Schedule an appointment to speak with one of our agents today and we can determine if your county is issuing licenses. If it is, we can guide you through the entire process. If it is not, we can help you explore other options, such as purchasing your license on the open market.

How much does a liquor license cost?

This depends on a number of factors. Which city are you purchasing a license for? Are you having your license issued by your city/county? Are you purchasing your license on the open market? Which type of liquor license are you purchasing? Speak with one of our agents today and we can help you find the best price for your liquor license. In most cases, we are able to find licenses for up to 30% cheaper than all of our competition!
