Restaurant liquor license application in Connecticut is a tedious task involving plenty of paperwork. Before applying for a liquor license, applicants must first file an application with the Liquor Control Commission. The application forms require in-depth information about the applicant, the premises, and its owners. All this of information must be provided in proper wording.
Requisite details about the premises include its size, sketches of the premises, indoor and outdoor pictures, a proposed menu, and a list of equipment. Details on the owner must include age, pertinent biographical information, and any criminal record, including all previous federal, state and municipal convictions. If the applicant is a business, its entity information, including a certificate of existence, must be provided.
Once the application is correctly filled out, it is submitted to the Liquor Control Commission, which issues the applicant with a placard that must be affixed on the premises’ window. A sign disclosing the application for licensing must also be displayed and a notice placed twice in the local newspapers indicating the same. These notifications allow for community stakeholder participation in the licensing.
Failure to follow these rules will result in the delayed issuing of a licensing certificate.
