Lake Geneva, WI (PRWEB) January 27, 2008
My Franchise Center, an online resource for franchising information and assistance, is available to answer questions in light of a recent liquor licensing situation in Wisconsin. A restaurant group is interested in opening a Ruby Tuesday franchise on the east side of Lake Geneva, according to the Janesville Gazette, but city officials are unsure of the number of available liquor licenses.
The team at My Franchise Center took notice when news of the situation in Wisconsin came out in the Gazette. The problem for RT Restaurants of Southern Wisconsin, which wants to purchase an outlet by a new Target store, is that the purchase is dependent on their ability to get a Class B combination liquor license. RT Restaurants applied for the license, but city officials denied them because there were not enough licenses available. This type of situation can cause problems for potential franchisees.
The group applied for a liquor license but was denied, according to the local newspaper, because city officials said no license was available. A state statute, which was implemented in 1997, limited local liquor licenses to one for every 500 residents. The City of Lake Geneva never filed paperwork to state how many licenses they'd issued and how many were available, based on population.
My Franchise Center wants potential franchisees to know that there are usually solutions to such problems. First of all, city officials say that 1,000 people weren't included in a 2,000 census, which changes the number of licenses they can issue. There is also a hotel that has a Class B liquor license in the city, but because of the nature of their business they actually qualify for a different type of license. There are also licenses held by business that haven't opened yet or that have closed. If these licensing issues are resolved, the franchise should be able to open with no problems.
