There are different categories of liquor license that a New York business might want to apply for. The “OP” liquor license pertains to all different types of alcoholic beverages you might offer and means that beer can be sold by the business for consumption off-site. This is a very expansive category of liquor license, which means that the standard for businesses to meet to obtain this type of New York liquor license can be very high. Businesses are typically under much more rigorous scrutiny by community boards as well as the New York State liquor Authority before securing this type of liquor license.
The process of obtaining an OP liquor license in New York involve voluminous paperwork as well as strict standards for each business applicant to meet. If you start this process without the assistance of a trusted attorney who practices in this area of law, you could find yourself wasting time and money down the line. You should consult with a New York OP liquor license lawyer as soon as possible in the process so that you know about all of the pitfalls you should avoid and how to best streamline your application.
There is a long list of details about your business, its clientele and your operations that will need to be included in a New York OP liquor license application. Being accurate with all of those details and presenting the information in a light most favorable to your business are important aspects of the application process.
