So, since my last business acquisition didn't come to fruition -- that doesn’t mean I've given up. Oh no. On contraire, mon frer. As a matter of fact, it sort of sent me out with a vengeance looking for another location.
Because I'm so specific on the type of business I want, I'd been thinking of building something from the ground up. It will cost me less money to do so -- the downside being no immediate revenue because I won't be gaining a clientele;I'll be building one. That's okay though. Initially, I was told that the hold up (no pun intended! Bite my tongue!!!) regarding liquor licensing might come from the town. So I approached the town; who informed me they loved the idea -- but it was a State Licensing issue. Which of course, led me to knock on the ABCC door. They inturn, were kind enough to inform me that it is indeed plausible and possible for me to acquire licensing -- pending approval at the State government level. So, I promptly made an appointment at the State House to visit the necessary powers that be. That meeting happened yesterday.
It went well. Very well. Still a long way to go…but off to a good start.
