Who we represent
License Locators represents numerous California alcoholic beverage licensees in all segments of the alcohol industry. The scope of our projects range from large multi-unit ownership transfers to single site developments; from billion dollar theme parks and art centers, to small family owned businesses. We represent international convenience store companies, national restaurant and hotel chains, regional supermarket and drug stores, as well as local restaurateurs, breweries, wineries, and wholesalers.
In order to apply for a California liquor license, you must own a location zoned for commercial use, or have a current lease agreement with a landlord of a commercially zoned property. License Locators can help you understand all of the business location requirements that must be met before applying.
There are dozens of different license types depending on the nature of the business and the types of alcohol that will be sold on the premises. It can be complicated to understand exactly which license is legally required to operate your business. We ensure that our clients are applying for the right license type.
Some California cities and counties require specific local zoning permits for businesses involved in selling alcohol, and the California Alcoholic Beverage Control requires all necessary local zoning requirements to be fulfilled before issuing a liquor license. License Locators will help you navigate the local permitting process.
When it comes to locating and obtaining liquor licenses for specific business requirements, License Locators is the best in California. Our huge database of available licenses and industry partnerships formed in our 20+ years of brokering licenses give us an edge at finding the perfect license fast.
Liquor license applications are very long and can be daunting even for experienced lawyers and consultants. We have helped companies apply for thousands of liquor licenses, and we know all of the procedures and tricks required to get your application right the first time and quickly approved by the California Alcoholic Beverage Control.
