I reached back out to Anthony from One Stop Bottle Shop to see if he had the contact info for the person they bought their C license from a few years back. He got back to me and said he would look into it. But He also gave me lots of more info on some of the past questions I had sent him (law school is apparently time consuming and hard… go figure haha).
A short while later I get another e-mail from him and get real excited thinking it is the C license contact…. it’s not… it is this:
Yep. That is a place that plans on opening in Rochester this fall…. 😦
So I cried a little at my desk this morning…
Then I realized this is just another test. I got this. I have already called my attorney to see if we can start the LLC process with a Letter of Intent instead of a lease agreement. I contacted Mark to see if we can get the exact address of the proposed T5 location since I know I need that for the LLC paperwork. I downloaded all of the trademark instruction for NY state (which of course require a legal name and address but I have them ready).
What I need to happen now
- I need Rand (LLC lawyer) to get back to me!! We have been playing phone tag all day
- Contact my personal investor to try and get some funds out soon to pay for the LLC and liquor license lawyers since I won’t be getting the bank financing soon enough
- I need to open a business bank account
- I need to find a C license and evaluate that options
Ok. It’s go time!
