How to Buy a Maricopa County Liquor License

In Maricopa County, Arizona, a buyer has two options for procuring an alcohol license. Maricopa County liquor licenses can be purchased directly from the Department of Liquor Licenses and Control (DLLC). The other way is to obtain an alcohol permit from a liquor license broker, such as Liquor License Auctioneers, on the open market. 

 

With a cap on the number of alcohol licenses available at any given time, Maricopa County liquor licenses can sometimes only be acquired on the secondary market from an alcohol license broker. Sometimes, a buyer will still need to wait until a Maricopa County alcohol license becomes available and a seller is willing to sell a liquor license to the alcohol permit buyer in Maricopa County, AZ.

 

This is where our experienced alcohol license brokers at Liquor License Auctioneers can help. In our years of working in this industry, we’ve connected with many business people and lawyers in this business sector.

To apply for a liquor license in Maricopa County, Arizona, the following forms are required:

 

  1. Complete the DLLC Application: Use black ink to fill out the DLLC Application for a Maricopa County liquor license.

  2. Submit the Questionnaire: When applying for a Maricopa County liquor license, you must submit the questionnaire that is required by the Department of Liquor Licenses and Control (DLLC). This questionnaire must be completed in its entirety and signed when submitted to the DLLC. 
  3. Prove Citizenship or Alien Status: The individual applying for the DLLC Application or their agent must fill out the Arizona Statement of Citizenship or Alien Status for State Public Benefits.
  4. Submit a Fingerprint Card: There is a $22.00 fee associated with the fingerprint card that must be submitted by the applicant for a liquor license in Maricopa County, AZ.
  5. A Valid Certificate of Completion for the Basic/Management Title 4 (Arizona Liquor Law) Training: The applicant or their agent must submit a valid certificate of completion for the Basic/Management Title 4 (Arizona Liquor Law) Training.

To be issued the Maricopa County liquor license, the applicant must also have a background clearance completed, a site inspection of their business property, and send in a copy of a valid Certificate of Completion for the Basic/Management Title 4 (Arizona Liquor Law) Training, if not received at the time of the DLLC Application. At this time, the final issuance fees need to be paid by the applicant.

 

Let our experienced alcohol license brokers at Liquor License Auctioneers help you with the following eight steps to secure a liquor license in Maricopa County, AZ.

 

  1. Secure the location: Select the business property where you’d like to operate your business and sell or serve liquor to your customers. The business premises must be rented, leased, or purchased. 
  2. Select your liquor license: Decide which type of Maricopa County alcohol license you need for your establishment, and then choose which way you will obtain the alcohol permit. You can secure the Maricopa County alcohol license from the Department of Liquor Licenses and Control (DLLC) or through a liquor license broker on the secondary market, like Liquor License Auctioneers. 
  3. Open your escrow account: An escrow account will need to be created with a third-party company. This account will hold all monetary transactions that are associated with the transfer and sale of the Maricopa County liquor license. 
  4. Survey the location: Employ a surveyor to do an inspection of your property. You can have Liquor License Auctioneers complete this survey for you.
  5. Complete your DLLC Application: Be sure that all the associated documents and forms are completed when you submit the DLLC Application for a Maricopa County liquor license in Arizona. The Department of Liquor Licenses and Control (DLLC) will review and approve the DLLC Application. Liquor License Auctioneers can assist you in completing the DLLC Application and the required documents. 
  6. Post a notice: Once the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control (DLLC) approves your DLLC Application for a Maricopa County liquor license, they will send you a notice of intent to sell liquor. This notice must be properly displayed at your business premises for a total of 30 days. 
  7. Submit to investigation: When the 30-day time period is up, the AZ DLLC will come to your location and conduct a final inspection of the property to determine if you are ready to sell or serve liquor at your business establishment.
  8. Receive the liquor license: After all of the seven prior steps have been satisfied, the Department of Liquor Licenses and Control (DLLC) will send you the official Maricopa County liquor license in the mail. When you receive the official alcohol license, you must feature it at your business location.

 

Adhering as closely to the aforementioned eight steps will meet the standards for securing a Maricopa County liquor license according to the Department of Liquor Licenses and Control (DLLC).
