The La Fiesta Market Liquor License is Revoked in Kerman
ABC investigation found three sales of alcohol to minors in a three-year period
Kerman – The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) has revoked the alcoholic beverage license of the La Fiesta Market located at 307 South Madera Avenue in Kerman because the store sold alcohol three separate times to minors in a three-year period.
ABC posted a Notice of Suspension after the store owner signed an agreement accepting the penalty of revocation, with revocation stayed for 180 days to allow for the transfer of the license to a new owner. Alcohol sales are prohibited until the license is transferred.
The Department opened an investigation at the store after it received a complaint from the community that the premises was selling alcohol to minors. Undercover ABC agents visited the location and issued citations for three separate sales of alcoholic beverages to minors.
“ABC licensees must protect underage youth by remaining vigilant and carefully checking identifications to prevent them from gaining access to alcohol,” said ABC Director Eric Hirata.
The mission of the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control is to provide the highest level of service and public safety to the people of the State through licensing, education, and enforcement. Learn more about ABC programs on the Department’s website.
ABC is a department of the Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency.
