Act 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.

Liquor 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.

Use 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).
