Anyone have any input about buying/owning a liquor store?

If you're not looking to be filthy rich but would like to make a decent living while being your own boss would this be the way to go?

 Every locality is different, but for instance where I live, getting the liqour license is super hard since they stopped awarding new ones since 1967.

Say you bought an existing, functional store.....would the license transfer over to the new owner?

 Again, assuming a similar set of locality laws...you would have to go before your local liquor board to have the transfer approved. They'll probably want to take a look at your finances as well as your criminal background if any. Also, the general public may have the option to protest a transfer of the license.

Of course, I'm speaking generally here but that's usually the deal.

 BTW, if you're serious about a liquor store and have some cash to invest:

www.brewthru.com/index.cfm

I'm hearing very positive things about the franchise.

Thanks for the link on BrewThru. I think that'd go pretty good here in NOLA. We already have drive thru daiqairi shops.

 Like I said, I'm hearing it's very popular.  You'd still have to get through all your liquor board applications and permit issues.

Liquor board here is an easy step. fill out that application and pay the fees. The one thing that we'll always approve here is food and drink.
