Summer’s coming! And in the hospitality industry, having a liquor license is a valuable asset. It allows your business to serve alcohol and bring in additional revenue. However, acquiring a liquor license in Florida does not mean simply making a purchase on the market. The state regulates liquor licenses, and obtaining one can be complex. Furthermore, they are limited in number, depending on the size of a county and the type of license. Finally, they can be expensive to purchase outright if they are even available. But did you know that you can finance a liquor license?

Should I Own or Finance a Liquor License?

Owning a liquor license means that you purchase it in full, although you still have to renew it annually. To finance a liquor license means that you take out a loan to cover the asset’s cost and make payments on the loan over time. 

If you’re looking to obtain a liquor license without the significant payment outright, you may wonder if financing a liquor license is the right decision. There are a few things to consider when making this decision:

  • How long do you plan on owning the business?
  • What type of liquor license do you need?
  • Can you comfortably make monthly payments?
  • How important is it for you to have full ownership of the liquor license?
  • Owning a liquor license gives you the ability to sell it in the future if you decide to exit the alcohol business, which can provide a valuable source of capital for your company.
  • However, when you finance a liquor license, it allows you to spread out the cost of the asset over time, making acquiring a liquor license more affordable for your business, especially for a startup.

With all the regulations and fees associated with liquor licenses, it’s crucial to understand the options available to you. Ultimately, the decision to own or finance a liquor license outright is one that you should make with the help of an experienced professional.
