Licensing and Permits
We are a leader in education for businesses that serve alcohol. Our Responsible Alcohol Sales & Service (RASS) workshops have been so successful that they are now a prerequisite for obtaining an alcohol license in some Georgia jurisdictions. Georgia’s restaurant trade associations, including the Georgia Restaurant Association, Georgia Food Industry Association and Georgia Association of Convenience Stores, regularly call on us for advice on alcohol matters. Whether it’s obtaining a license or mitigating an enforcement action, we have the knowledge necessary to navigate the complex laws that attach to alcohol licensing.
