How to Buy a Yuba County Liquor License

In California, there are two ways that a buyer can secure a Yuba County alcohol license. One way is to purchase an alcohol permit directly from the Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC). The other way is to obtain an Yuba County liquor license on the secondary market using a liquor license broker, such as Liquor License Auctioneers.


Since there is a cap on the number of Yuba County alcohol permits available at any time, usually the only way to attain an alcohol license is through the open market using a liquor license broker. Sometimes, there may be no available Yuba County liquor licenses on the secondary market, and you’ll need to wait until a seller can sell a liquor license to you in Yuba County, CA.


As expert liquor license brokers, this is our sweet spot. In our many years of experience in this business sector, we’ve gained numerous contacts of lawyers and business owners. These professional connections have granted us the ability to offer select Yuba County alcohol licenses that are only on our online auction platform. These alcohol permits can not be sold by other liquor license brokerages, giving us the advantage of pricing them fairly. If you don’t see the specific type of Yuba County liquor license your business requires to sell or serve alcohol, then let us know. We’ll reach out to our network of connections and track one down for you.


Complete the following eight steps to secure a liquor license in Yuba County with the assistance of our experienced liquor license brokers.


  1. Secure the location: The space where you will be conducting business must be leased, rented, or purchased.
  2. Select your liquor license: Decide which type of Yuba County alcohol license you need to sell liquor at your business. Then, choose whether you will procure an alcohol permit from the California ABC or through the secondary market, using an alcohol license broker, like Liquor License Auctioneers. 
  3. Open your escrow account: At this time, you’ll create an escrow account with a third-party company. All funds associated with the purchase and transfer of the Yuba County liquor license will be held in the escrow account.
  4. Survey the location: Hire a surveyor to come to your property and conduct an inspection. We can complete this step for you.
  5. Complete your ABC Application: When you have completed the ABC Application for a Yuba County liquor license, submit the application to the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC). They will review the application at this time. Our liquor license brokers can help complete the application on your behalf.
  6. Post a notice: After the CA Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) has approved your ABC Application, they will mail you a notice of intent to sell liquor. When you receive this notice, you must post it at your business for at least 30 days.
  7. Submit to investigation: When it’s been 30 days, the CA ABC will come to your establishment and perform a final inspection to make sure that everything is up to code and you are ready to sell liquor.
  8. Receive the liquor license: After you pass the inspection from the California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC), they will send you the official Yuba County liquor license. Once you receive the alcohol permit in the mail, you must post it at your business. 


Remember, acquiring an alcohol license in Yuba County can be a lengthy and time-consuming process, so be sure that all of the eight steps listed above are completed. These eight steps meet the requirements for the State of California when purchasing a liquor license in Yuba County.


When going through the process of applying for a Yuba County alcohol permit, it’s important to not only follow the eight steps but also see if your local municipality has any additional regulations or stipulations such as zoning permits (CUP’s).
