Glades County was formed in 1921 and named after the Florida Everglades. With a total are of 986 square miles and more than 12,000 persons living in the area, according to the most recent census, there is no doubt that this touristic natural realm is in great need of liquor licenses. The problem with obtaining them is type of license you want to get and this depends on the type of beverages that you plan on selling on the premises.
On the one hand, there are the SRX, Special Restaurant Licenses, or “Beer/ Wine only” licenses which can be obtained in a fairly simple manner by going to the responsible division of the Florida Division of Alcoholic Beverages, which is District 8 in Fort Myers, and paying a nominal fee.
On the other hand, there is another type of licensing called Full Liquor Quota Licenses, which is not as easy to obtain and this is exactly where our company comes into place. Liquor License Florida can help you acquire this hard to find license in no time. The problem is that these licenses are not issued any more and must be purchased from someone who already has one. And the solution is to trust us at Liquor License Florida to handle the transaction and find the perfect seller that will enable you to get your alcohol selling business up and running!
