#1 Business Broker for Liquor and Wine Specialty Stores

Liquor Store Owner

Whether you’re an owner interested in selling, or a buyer, we have the knowledge and PROVEN TRACK RECORD to help you achieve your goal. Our reputation is unmatched, specializing in liquor and wine specialty stores, liquor licenses, package stores and gourmet food stores. In fact, BayState Business Brokers has sold more of these businesses than any other broker in our area.

One reason why we’re known as the experts is that we’ve sold dozens and dozens of liquor and wine businesses. And, unlike others, our hands-on industry experience is a great advantage. As an example, Business Broker Brian Labonte is steeped in the business, having owned and operated a large, successful family-owned liquor store for many years. When his family decided it was time to sell, they were so pleased with their experience with BayState Business Brokers that Brian later decided to become a business broker and join the team. Now he and BayState Business Brokers Principal Sarah Grossman work as a team assisting liquor and wine store clients, sellers and buyers throughout New England complete successful transactions.

Business Owners
If you’re looking to buy, we help a variety of business owners, strategic buyers, individuals and select private equity groups buy liquor businesses.
Specialized Expertise
Our specialized expertise enables us to facilitate deals by helping navigate common hurdles such as valuing the business properly, local and state (ABCC) liquor license approval, lottery approval and even helping qualified buyers secure financing and favorable long-term leases.
Family-run business
As a licensed real estate brokerage, we can sell liquor stores that also include the property, which are in demand and can command a price that is above market.

Within New England, our SKILLED BUSINESS BROKERS work with business owners, including many family-owned businesses throughout Massachusetts including Upper Cape Cod, Southern New Hampshire including the areas of Manchester, Nashua and Salem, and Windham, Tolland and Hartford counties in Connecticut.
