About Us

No Marketing Cost to the Seller

Our marketing program will result in your license receiving top dollar. This is a dynamic market. Our program involves contacting potential buyers from national chains, independents, and local businesses. We have an extensive network and leverage selective proven brokers. We market extensively on the internet, trade publications, newspaper advertisement, and trade associations.

A One-of-a-kind Database

Unlike real estate transactions, the value of liquor license transactions is only known to the participants. Towns do not have sales data. State agencies do not keep sales data. But our database contains information from over 600 transactions consummated in many of New Jersey’s 566 towns. Over 25 years of research identifies comparable sales in neighboring towns with similar demographics and other critical data points to accurately establish New Jersey liquor license values.

The Man That Started It All

Howard Goldstein was a successful business leader and entrepreneur for over 25 years. He was an expert in Liquor License acquisition, sales, and appraisal valuation, with an extensive background in commercial real estate, and is a real estate developer himself, as well. Howard worked with many leading restaurant chains and developers in identifying commercial locations, leasing over 400,000 square feet of retail space.

Howard identified and brokered over 600 liquor licenses in his lifetime. Marque customers include Ruby Tuesday, Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Long Horn Steakhouse, Wawa, Joe’s Crab Shack, Carrabba’s, Outback Steakhouse, TGIF Friday’s, Applebee’s, Bonefish, Dave’s BBQ, Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza, Airports in Boston, Newark, and LA, Red Robin, and Buffalo Wild Wings.

Howard started New Jersey Liquor Licenses Are Us as a natural extension of his high volume liquor license brokering and commercial real estate businesses. Restaurant chains as well as attorneys, banks, executors of estates, and independent liquor license owners voiced a need for current and accurate liquor license appraisals, and Howard answered the call, becoming a leader in his field.

Today, New Jersey Liquor Licenses Are Us is a highly reliable and sought after firm for liquor license appraisals in all 50 states – and we have Howard to thank for that.
