SERVICES AVAILABLE THROUGH ALIC:
as Agent: Every liquor license is required to have an Agent. The Agent
is the liaison between the licensee and the Department of Liquor License &
Control (DLLC). Our Agent services are essential for out of state
companies, individual owners needing to satisfy DLLC resident
requirements, or companies needing someone other than an uninformed
corporate attorney, corporate officer, or employee to do something they
know nothing about. ALIC acts as the Agent on more liquor licenses in
Arizona than all the other liquor consulting companies combined.
License Applications: ALIC routinely processes 20 to 30 liquor license
applications a month "again, more than any other company in Arizona". You
think you're solving this problem by having your attorney do it for you.
In almost every instance, your attorney will charge you four to five times
more to do your application than ALIC. In many cases your attorney will
then have us do the application for him because he doesn't really know how
and we are so cost effective he still makes money.
Permits: Most cities now require a use permit to operate any
establishment which deals with spirituous liquor within that city. Some
cities even require you to submit the use permit application before they
will accept your liquor license application. Use permits are also required
by many cities before you can add a patio to an existing licensed
premises. (This service in not available with other consulting companies).
Prior to a liquor license being issued by the state of Arizona, an
operating owner or manager is required to receive Arizona Department of
Liquor License & Control certified liquor law training. Employees by law
are required to be familiar with Arizona liquor laws as well.
Additionally, training is one of the few ways you have to help protect
yourselves when it comes to "Dram Shop" litigation. ALIC provides one of
the finest, most comprehensive training programs available. Our weekly
training classes are conveniently set up for optimum attendance. ALIC's
training program is certified by the Arizona Department of Liquor License
and Control and endorsed by the Arizona Restaurant Association.
Checks: ALIC provides spot check services to contracted establishments
who want to make sure their employees are operating in the best interests
of the licensee. ALIC agents in a covert capacity, monitor contracted
establishments looking for everything from poor serving techniques, to
illegal or inappropriate activities by those employed by the licensee. The
spot check results are kept strictly confidential and disclosed only to
the licensee or his designate.
Meetings (Violations): ALIC President Randy Nations is a retired
Arizona DPS Liquor Agent. Because of his background, Randy knows how to
address and resolve pending violations in the most efficient, cost
effective manner. In many cases he can get violations dismissed that
unknowing attorneys or licensees would plead guilty to and pay a fine.

there are three types of licenses that can only be obtained from an
existing owner or through the Department of Liquor lottery. These three
are a class 6 bar license, a class 7 beer & wine bar license and a class 9
package liquor store license. ALIC brokers these licenses for both sellers
