Buying or Selling For the Holidays: Which is Best For Your Business?

Whether a person decides to buy, sell or finance their liquor license, Liquor License Professionals can help. Our team of professionals would be happy to help ensure that the transaction goes smoothly so that clients can focus on running their restaurant or storefront. 

While there are benefits to buying, selling and financing a liquor license, we are happy to help our customers ensure a secure, smooth and timely transaction. 

Buying a Liquor License

With the holidays coming up quickly, there has never been a better time to buy a liquor license. Buying a license can help bring the additional business that may be needed to turn a profit. While New Year’s Eve is a great way to end your business’s Q1 with a bang, Race Week, Bike Week, Fantasy Fest, Saint Patrick’s Day and Grand Prix F-1 are other major events or holidays that businesses can look forward to in the coming new year. 

Buying a liquor license might seem complicated, but our team at Liquor License Professionals is here to ensure that transactions between you and the party you’re buying from or selling to go smoothly. Our team not only oversees the transaction process between you and another owner, but we also help ensure all of the necessary paperwork and documentation is in place, prepared properly. 

Selling a Liquor License

If a business has struggled and needs extra revenue to continue operating, selling their liquor license may be beneficial. 

Sometimes, depending on a business’s clientele or business model, liquor sales might be more of a detriment than a benefit. Thankfully, Liquor License Professionals can help your business sell its liquor license, giving you access to cash resources to continue funding your business.

Our team recommends selling your liquor license if:
  • Liquor sales have decreased significantly over the months
  • Profits have turned into the red rather than in the black
  • The expense of operating with a liquor license has eaten into other aspects of the business

At Liquor License Professionals, we understand that a liquor license may not fit into specific business models. Sometimes, a liquor license can be detrimental to a business. A liquor license is an expensive investment, so, understandably, it might be ideal to sell it in some situations. 

Since liquor licenses are in short supply in the state of Florida, selling your license can help benefit both you and another business. You can sell your license and make a return on your investment, all while helping another business get the license they need to boost their profit. 

Selling can make things easier for a business, especially with the correct help. During many months of the year, there is usually a waiting list for a liquor license, meaning you may not have to wait for your liquor license to sell.

If there are not any restaurants or businesses available to buy your liquor license, we can buy your license off of you. Liquor License Professionals will sell this license once a restaurant or company expresses interest in it. This option allows people to get immediate access to the funds they need while providing additional resources for restaurants in need.
