How to Buy a Pima County Liquor License

A Pima County alcohol license buyer can acquire an alcohol permit in one of two ways. The first way is to purchase a liquor license in Pima County from the Department of Liquor Licenses and Control (DLLC). The other option is to obtain an alcohol license in Pima County on the open market using a liquor license broker, such as Liquor License Auctioneers.

 

Arizona has a limited number of alcohol licenses available in each county, including Pima County. Liquor licenses are typically purchased through the secondary market. Often a buyer will have to wait for a seller to sell a liquor license to you in Pima County, AZ.

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

 

  1. Complete the DLLC Application: As the first step to applying for an alcohol license in Pima County, you must complete the Arizona DLLC Application. When filling out the application, use only black ink, and be sure to pay attention to the sections you should fill out based on which type of Pima County alcohol permit you need as well as the type of alcohol license ownership.
  2. Submit the Questionnaire: When applying for a liquor license in Pima County, you must complete a questionnaire and sign it when returning the questionnaire along with the DLLC Application.
  3. Prove Citizenship or Alien Status: The applicant or their agent needs to complete the Arizona Statement of Citizenship or Alien Status for State Public Benefits document. 
  4. Submit a Fingerprint Card: The Pima County liquor license applicant must pay the $22.00 fee for the fingerprints, and the fingerprint card must be sent to the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control (DLLC). 
  5. A Valid Certificate of Completion for the Basic/Management Title 4 (Arizona Liquor Law) Training: The business owner or agent must send in a valid certificate of completion for the Basic/Management Title 4 (Arizona Liquor Law) Training. This certificate must be submitted within 60 days from when the DLLC Application was received by the AZ DLLC.
  6. Issuance of Pima County Liquor License: There are a few additional requirements that a Pima County alcohol license applicant must fulfill. The alcohol permit applicant must gain approval from the local governing body in Pima County - city, town, or county.  The Department of Liquor Licenses and Control (DLLC) must wait at least 15 days after the date of recommendation for approval before the DLLC reviews the Arizona DLLC Application for Issuance. Additional requirements include getting a site inspection of the business, having background clearance, and giving the Department of Liquor Licenses and Control (DLLC) a copy of the Certificate of Completion for the Basic/Management Title 4 (Arizona Liquor Law) Training if they haven’t already received it along with the application. Any issuance fees related to the Pima County alcohol permit are due at this time.

 

Our expert liquor license brokers can help guide you through the following eight steps to secure a liquor license in Pima County, Arizona.

 

  1. Secure the location: Purchase, rent, or lease the business location where you plan to sell or serve liquor.

  5. Complete your DLLC Application: After the DLLC Application is filled out, send it to the Department of Liquor Licenses and Control (DLLC) with the required documents. The Arizona DLLC will review and approve the application for a Pima County alcohol license. Have our team of liquor license brokers assist you in completing the application. 
  6. Post a notice: When the Arizona DLLC has approved your application for a Pima County liquor license, the Department of Liquor Licenses and Control (DLLC) will send over a notice of intent to sell liquor. After you receive the notice, you should display it at your business for 30 days.
  7. Submit to investigation: After the time frame of 30 days has elapsed, the Arizona DLLC will come to your place of business and do a final inspection of your establishment to determine if everything is up to code and if you are ready to sell alcohol.
  8. Receive the liquor license: After you have successfully followed each of the previous seven steps, the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control (DLLC) will mail you the official Pima County alcohol license. When you receive the alcohol permit, you must prominently feature it at your business.
