Broad Package Privileges

New Jersey liquor licenses are classified under a three (3) tiered system. These tiers include (1) Manufacturers, (2) Wholesalers and (3) Retailers. Retailers are further classified into Consumption Licenses (bars/restaurants) and Distribution Licenses (liquor stores). However, one exception to this retailer classification is known as the Retail Consumption License with Broad Package Privileges. Whether you are seeking to purchase a Retail Consumption License with Broad Package Privileges or you need representation in relation to Charges against your license, contact the attorneys at Proetta, Oliver & Fay. Our firm has the experienced required to handle any type of ABC-related issues. Call 732-858-5857 today to speak with an attorney

Plenary Retail Consumption License With Broad Package Privilege

This type of retail license (also referred to as a “32”) is no longer issued. The only way to obtain such a license is through the purchase of a pre-existing license. What makes this license so valuable is the broad package privilege it bestows upon the licensee. This means that you can operate a restaurant/bar and a liquor store on the same premises. This licensee can essentially operate as a plenary retail consumption license and a plenary retail distribution license for the price of one (1) license.

This “broad package privilege” was added to certain Plenary Retail Consumption Licenses in 1948, and those licenses continue to retain that privilege. For the purposes of population caps, a consumption license with broad package privileges is treated as Plenary Retail Consumption Licenses (1 for every 3,000 residents).
