Liquor license consulting & retail strategy

Thrive’s independent hospitality industry consultants alleviate your stress when undertaking license applications, retail policies, and strategy development. Our work supports casinos, hotels, motels, resorts, and other hospitality services. With Thrive, it’s easier than you thinkTM.

Liquor sales account for a significant portion of hospitality services sales revenue (approximately 50% for a restaurant, up to 60% for a bar and grill, and 95% or more for a private liquor retailer), so you can’t afford to take chances with your liquor license application or retail strategy.

Our experienced hospitality consultants take the weight off your shoulders and greatly increase the odds of license approval. Once we’ve helped you successfully acquire a license, we’ll set you up for success by implementing proven policies, procedures, and winning retail strategies.

Our independent hospitality consultants have helped hundreds of hospitality businesses thrive. We would love to grow your business too.

Hospitality service license research & support

Whether you’re starting a hospitality service business or are already up and running, you’ll need an experienced consultant to help you obtain many different types of licenses, including food, beverage, health permits, entertainment and venue licensing, business licenses, and more. Thrive simplifies the complicated for hotels, motels, restaurants, sports venues, casinos, theatres, resorts, and other tourist destinations and attractions. While accommodation and venue general managers are often experts at running their venue, they typically don’t have expertise with provincial, state and municipal licensing, policies and regulations. Nor do they have knowledge of business policy and procedure development best practices that bolster license compliance and optimize your operation for growth.

Our independent hospitality consultants are well-versed in many types of licensing and policies required of hospitality industry start-ups and established hospitality businesses.

Get Thrive on your side! Our trusted advisors will protect you like family, safeguarding your interests, and guiding your growth.

Hospitality consulting FAQ

1What types of hospitality businesses do you work with?
While we specialize in working with hospitality businesses with a liquor-service focus, because of our experience with government licensing, we’re also able to support many other hospitality licensing needs. Our job is to dig into the fine print, understand licensing requirements, collect all required documentation, and submit the application. We help you put your best foot forward! The majority of license application delays and license rejections are caused by misunderstanding requirements and/or submitting incomplete applications. Working with Thrive hospitality licensing consultants greatly reduces delays and increases the chances of license application approval. Schedule a complimentary consultation today.

Most of our work is done remotely (e.g. research, document collection, etc), although we can and do travel to meetings when required. Send us a message and we’ll schedule a remote meeting.
