3. Apply for your 2COP license with your new DBA Florida Tavern License

4. Apply to pay your Florida State Sales Tax - you can do this online or hire a local accountant to do everything for you.
Florida's general sales tax of 6.00% also applies to the purchase of liquor. In Florida, liquor vendors are responsible for paying a state excise tax of $6.50 per gallon, plus Federal excise taxes, for all liquor sold. Florida Alcohol Sales Tax Handbook

5. Sign Up for a Paypal Business Account in your new business name and get their Mobile Card Reader that plugs into your cellphone or tablet so you can take credit cards. Connect your new business checking account to your new business paypal account to easily sweep funds into your business checking account as often as you like for free. Mobile & in-store payments 2.7% per Swipe. There is No Monthly fee. Accept Amex 3.5% per transaction.

6. While waiting for your paperwork do your painting of the building, order printed signs and banners from Staples in Palatka - (386) 325-1831 and buy your Equipment (list above). Vistaprint.com is great for do-it-yourself business cards and flyers. Lowes & Home Depot are located 20 miles north in Palatka. Ace Hardware is in downtown Crescent City 2 miles south. While you are there you will probably be approached by a few wannabe employees and find yourself becoming friends with many of the locals to help with things like lawnmowing. Be sure to stop into 3 Bananas for great food on the Lakefront in downtown Crescent City and get to know the owners. Other business owners are great for spreading the word.

7. Attract business by advertising a Grand Opening date in the local papers and on your new website and social media. Here are a list of free places to advertise and post your Free Website on for Free Advertising Post Daily and Weekly Specials on your website and Facebook. Pool Tournaments, Live Entertainment, Karaoke, Darts, Poker Runs, Benefits.

8. Join the local Eagles, Moose and/or Shriners to spread the good news about your new business and invite people you meet over to visit. Club members are allowed to post flyers on their bulletin boards. The Moose has a dump station for members RV's and RV hookups for members for less than $100 a month providing water and electric. Once you become a Moose member you can hookup your RV wherever Moose Clubs have facilities available all over the USA.
On your days off be sure to visit the local fishing camps and marinas along Crescent Lake, Georgetown on Lake George and Welaka on the St.Johns River. Be sure to post flyers about your business wherever you go and get to know the business owners. Stop by each place to refresh your flyers regularly. Offer to put their website link on your own website, ask to friend them on facebook and offer to ad their flyers on your own bar bulletin board about their business. This area does not seem to have a centralized location for posting flyers and business cards so if you create one - word will get around that it is a good place to visit. The same thing can be done online on linkedin and by exchanging links with local area businesses.
Be a good reciprocal back scratcher, elbow rubber, glad hander, meet and greeter and you will do well wherever life takes you.
