House Bill to Allow New Liquor Licenses in Downtown Kissimmee

Governor Ron DeSantis signed House Bill 1099 allowing certain restaurants in Downtown Kissimmee’s Redevelopment District to be issued a special liquor license by the Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco of the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR).

The bill only applies to “bona fide restaurants” in the district that occupy at least 1,800 square feet of contiguous space. Also, eligible restaurants must be equipped to serve meals to at least 80 people at one time and derive at least 51 percent of their gross food and beverage revenue from the sale of food and nonalcoholic beverages during the first 60-day operating period and each 12-month working period.
