New Wine Bar Franchise

( The franchise blog)  According to Mlive, The Wine Loft, a new restaurant in downtown Kalamazoo, expects to have its liquor license next month and open its doors by mid- to late-August.

“Tiffany Cornelius, president and co-owner of West Michigan Wine Loft Inc., said the franchise wine and tapas bar has hired a general manager and assistant manager and is taking applications for other staff. “We’ve already gotten a couple dozen applications,” Cornelius said. Workers have knocked a hole a in the east side of the Haymarket building to provide access to a planned patio, but Cornelius said the outdoor dining area won’t be open until next year.

“Cornelius said she is meeting with sales reps from wine companies - the restaurant is expected to have more than 100 wines by the bottle - but can’t purchase any until the liquor license is approved. “We’re working through all the legalities here,” she said. “
