What Standards and Specifications Should I Be Aware of?
If you are planning to open an Establishment or looking to acquire a liquor license, it is imperative that you first check all state and local standards that may apply to ensure you are compliant. These standards may include setbacks from adjacent establishments, churches, schools, food safety or health code standards, compliance standards for the American Disabilities Act, and lastly equipment specifications. Among other things, these codes, standards, and specifications are put into place to ensure that your Establishment is a safe and healthy environment for all of your patrons and staff. A Hospitality Establishment that is not properly planned out by a professional may not conform to these codes or standards and will therefore not be in compliance for a liquor license to be placed.

Whether you are seeking a liquor license for your bar, nightclub, liquor store, restaurant, hotel, golf course, or catering business, we can help you to achieve and plan a professional establishment compliant with all state and local standards. It is important to note that these standards may be based on your space’s use, maximum occupancy, address safety concerns and fire codes. We will help you to navigate how these standards may apply to your establishment during the planning and specification period.
Health Code Standards:
Bacteria is the leading cause of foodborne illness, making it critical that your Establishment is equipped with the proper tools and equipment. This bacteria can be easily spread in incorrectly sized refrigerators, freezers, or storage. It is also important that when planning your Establishment you are implementing the proper cleaning and sanitation equipment. These tools will be key for passing food safety or health inspections, obtaining your liquor license and becoming a successful establishment.
American Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards:
As an owner, you will need to plan for having employees and patrons in need of accessibility accommodations. You will need to ensure that internal equipment such as refrigerators, wine reserves, beverage centers, and freezers, as well as outside accommodations such as tables and chairs, are ADA compliant. This means that they are either larger, lower, or otherwise more accessible to someone who may have a disability.
Finally, it is important to note the equipment specifications for your Establishment based on the above factors and state-mandated guidelines, and ensure that your equipment is in compliance. As Florida small business consultants for your establishment, Liquor License Professionals will assist you in determining these specifications and help you to plan accordingly. When planning an Establishment, consider the specifications of equipment such as:
Cocktail Station Beer Systems and Kegs
Under Bar Equipment Waste Receptacles
Back Bar Equipment Carbonators and Nitrogen Blenders
Walk-in Freezer / Coolers Cleaning Chemicals
