Alcohol Wholesalers offer alcohol products to retailers. This can include pourable beverages such as kegs to resale items such as six packs. Beverages can include beer, wine, spirits and malt liquor. Usually, alcohol wholesalers get their licenses and permits from their states, but in some cases must also have local licenses as well.
Sarasota welcomes entrepreneurs to its white sand-lined shores. City and county licenses are kept at a bare minimum while most regulation is performed by Florida. Local entrepreneurs operating food, education, and certain personal service businesses face the most regulation. Additionally, local businesses pay license fees to state, county and city governments. Sarasota's economy is fueled largely by tourism, the arts and spending by retirees which in turn has fueled real estate development and construction. The beautiful, tropical community is known for its theater, dance, and music companies. Sarasota does not have many other major industries.
