Our team of expert liquor license brokers can guide you through the eight-step process outlined below to acquire a Merced County liquor license.

 

  1. Secure the location: First, you’ll need to rent, purchase, or lease the business property where you plan to sell liquor. 
  2. Select your liquor license: Figure out which type of Merced County alcohol license you need for your type of business. Then, select the way you will obtain the alcohol permit - through the open market using a liquor license broker like Liquor License Auctioneers or the CA Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC).
  3. Open your escrow account: We recommend that you use a third-party company to open an escrow account. This escrow account will be where all the monetary funds associated with the purchase and transfer of the Merced County alcohol permit will be held. 
  4. Survey the location: You will need to have a surveyor come to your business location to conduct an inspection. Our team of liquor license brokers can complete this step.
  5. Complete your ABC Application: At this time, the ABC Application for a Merced County liquor license will need to be submitted to the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) for review. You can have Liquor License Auctioneers help you complete this application. 
  6. Post a notice: After the ABC Application has been approved, the CA ABC will send you a notice of intent to sell liquor. Then, you must post the notice for 30 days at your place of business.
  7. Submit to investigation: Once the 30-day time period is up, the California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) will perform a final inspection of your business property. The CA ABC will make sure that everything is up to code and that you are ready to sell liquor.
  8. Receive the liquor license: Once you have completed the previous seven steps to the satisfaction of the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC), they will send you the official Merced County liquor license in the mail. When you receive the alcohol permit, you are instructed to feature it in a prominent place at your establishment.

 

Following the eight steps above will ensure that you’ve met the requirements for securing a Merced County alcohol license as set by the state of California’s Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC). To ensure that you will receive the Merced County liquor license in a timely manner, check with your local municipal government to see if they have additional requirements.
