Liquor License Fee Changes Proposed

Obtaining a liquor license and paying liquor license fees can be complex and expensive depending on where you operate your business. In Mankato, MN, there is a discussion on revisiting the way liquor licenses should be charged as consumer behavior regarding drinking has changed.

“City officials are looking at kitchen facilities as one way to define which businesses are primarily restaurants and which businesses are primarily bars, Miller said. Restaurants with commercial grade burners, ovens, range hoods and larger refrigeration units are more likely to be considered a business that is focused as much on selling food as alcohol.”
