If you’re opening a restaurant in California, you will most likely need a California liquor license. Even if you’re opening a family-style restaurant, you will require a California liquor license to serve any kind of alcohol. From a general alcohol permit to a beer and wine permit, a California liquor license is a must if your business has the intention of providing any kind of alcohol to your customers.
One of the most common types of liquor licenses for restaurants is the California Liquor License Type 47. The Type 47 license is specifically designated for businesses that primarily serve food. The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) states that, in order to be issued a Type 47 license, your establishment must be a “bona fide eating place.” Basically, this means that your business must generate at least 51% of all gross sales from food. Also, the food must be true, prepared food that you would find in most restaurants or cafes.
The California Liquor License Type 47 is a general liquor license and allows the holder to serve beer, wine, liquor and spirits, and is designated as an “On-premises” license. This means that alcohol may be sold, opened and served on the premises, but may not sell closed containers to be consumed elsewhere.
