  • Hawaii Bar Licenses and Permits

    Selling a cheeseburger in paradise can easily take up to eight licenses and permits. Although ever-relaxed Hawaii is less regulated than many other western states, it has a number of its own island-state-specific ways. Foreigners looking to set-up shop should take special care thoroughly research their operational licenses.

    In Hawaii, bars and Nightclubs are both highly regulated and highly profitable. Because of alcohol sales and their high potential for assorted vice crimes, state and local governments monitor bars and nightclubs carefully. In some cities such as Philadelphia, a bar or nightclub may need up to 12 licenses and permits. Navigating the maze of applications and processes required to start such a business can be daunting.
