- Thread-Topic: Mutual Help List, Governmental Liquor License for Airport Restaurant
We suffered through two restaurant failures until we found a winner. We always
felt strongly that the liquor license was an asset to the facility and should
always remain. I would not recommend allowing them to sell it. Perhaps
restructuring the lease with a lower percentage of gross receipts would be an
alternative. You might want to involve local successful operators in the lease
review process. We found this very helpful as their input help make the
agreement more attractive to a potential operator. This process also helped
lead us to the current operator who turned things around.

Subject: CAA: Mutual Help List, Governmental Liquor License for Airport
The restaurant at my airport states they're losing money and is looking to
me to do something about it.
One request they've made is for me to permit them to remove the liquor
license from the airport so they can sell the license to recoup the
investment. (It's presently in the lease that the restaurant is not
allowed to do this).
As part of the request, they're asking the the City (municipally-owned
airport) apply for a governmental liquor license for the airport to be used
in the restaurant operation. New Mexico State liquor laws permit local
governments to apply for liquor licenses for sales at government owned
facilities. Our Civic Center already does this.
I have been requested to research if any other airports have been asked to
do this - or if any other airport has a government-owned liquor license,
and how they handle the landlord/tennant relationship.
