ing_17215_09047resizeThere is some good news for Michigan restaurants trying to obtain a liquor license. On November 3, Governor Rick Snyder signed into law Public Act 315 of 2016, which amends the Michigan Liquor Code and expands the use of Conditional Liquor Licenses.

As many restaurateurs know all too well, the liquor license application process can be frustrating and lengthy. Delays in the licensing process often force restaurant owners to choose between holding off on opening until the license comes through, or opening early to get cash flowing but without being able to serve alcohol.

PA 315 is meant to remedy that issue. With a Conditional Liquor License, restaurant owners can secure a temporary liquor license as the Michigan Liquor Control Commission conducts its necessary background checks. This allows business owners to get their establishments up and running—and earning money—more quickly.

The attorneys at Dalton & Tomich are equipped to help restaurateurs at all stages of development. If you are working to open a restaurant, we’d love to work with you to make your concept a reality.
