Running a Restaurant/8cop liquor license

Question
Larry--how does an 8COP license in Dixie County,FL compare to the others?  notion as to value?  thanks, Jeff

Answer
My understanding is that a plain 8 COP liquor license is a standard license quota license for on premises sale for a small county. In other words you pay less because the county is less populated. However, there are other forms of 8 COP licenses that have letters after them like SRX or A or some other letter that means they are for a different purpose.

Your plain 8 COP in Dixie County is probably worth $40,000 to $60,000 depending on current demand. Special designated 8 COPS are not worth much.
