Retailer License


A retailer license allows the licensee to sell and offer for sale at retail in the original package alcoholic liquor for use or consumption off of and away from the premises and other sales as authorized by K.S.A. 41-308. May serve free samples of wine, spirits and beer on the licensed premise and at adjacent premises monitored and regulated by the ABC. See the ABC Publication "Handbook for Retailers" for additional information.

Due to changes in the 2012 legislative session, employee registration and salesperson permits are no longer required effective July 1, 2012.

Overview of Application Process

When you apply for a new license or renew your existing license, it will be for a two year license term and it must be renewed biannually. You will have the option to either:

  • pay the license fee and the registration fee in full or
  • pay half of the license fee plus the registration fee with your application and pay the remaining half of the license fee plus a 10 percent surcharge within one year from the date your license was issued. Note: If you do not pay your remaining license fee and the 10 percent surcharge when it is due, your license will automatically be cancelled.
