Home Liquor Delivery Services
While some entrepreneurs focus on distributing liquor products to commercial operations, others are taking advantage of rising demand for home/residential liquor delivery. Not surprisingly, home liquor delivery is extremely controversial since it is susceptible to abuse (e.g. delivery to minors, etc.).
Although the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms (ATF) has federal jurisdiction over alcohol-related issues, alcohol distribution (including private liquor delivery) is primarily regulated by state and local governments. Check with your state's liquor control board for the regulations that apply in your area.
Becoming a Home Liquor Delivery Service
If home alcohol delivery is allowable in your state and local area, your startup will need to be structured to accommodate several limitations:
Delivery staff must be over the age of 21 years old.
Time restrictions, including the inability to deliver liquor by day or time of day.
Limitations on the amount of alcohol that can be delivered per household.
Requirement for person accepting delivery to provide proof of age.
Documentation requirements that record the recipient's vital information and signature.
