ABC Consulting would like to introduce you to a deli in Richmond. Pops on Grace is a trendy, delicious Café, Delicatessen & Bakery that frequently sells out of their delicious, freshly-prepared food. Their restaurant license also includes Wine & Beer on premises, which means they can serve that wine & beer, ToGo, as well, if it is paired with food. You have to check out these drool-worthy sandwich selections:
Our clients get help from us with annual re-certifications, onsite seller/server training, help with MBAR reporting, support and attendance at hearings and reminders for renewing licenses and permits – and we encourage all of our clients and would-be clients to take our self-paced online seller/server training, too, for only $29.95. Here are the parameters behind serving alcohol at a restaurant, with a wine & beer on premises permit:
- Restaurants have to have $2,000 in food sales, per month to serve Beer & Wine.
- Of-age staff (21 behind the bar and 18 on the floor of a restaurant) can only serve alcohol to of-age (21), with proper ID, customers.
- House Bill 1879 and Senate Bill 1299 – both of these bills allow the continuation of a practice first conceived and initiated by VA ABC Authority to allow restaurants to sell wine & beer, to go. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, when many restaurants were shuttered, ABC created a safe and secure way for restaurants to offer ToGo beer and wine (up to two beers or two glasses of wine, per order, because they have a Beer & Wine on-premises license).

ABC Consulting was created in 2009 after Crystal Stump’s retirement from the VA Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control Enforcement Division. Since then, her brainchild, ABC Consulting, has grown into a successful team of former VA ABC Special Agents, working for alcohol licensees across Virginia and other states. There is also former Alcohol Tobacco Tax and Trade (known as TTB) agents and inspectors and the team – they all work alongside you and your business for seamless licensing, compliance and training. We also have a YouTube channel that’s goal is to educate the ABC community about alcohol compliance. We’d appreciate your visiting and subscribing to our YouTube channel and if you find our videos informative, please like each one – this will help other people browsing YouTube see it. Our channel is for anyone unsure of how to navigate the regulations or for anyone who isn’t sure what is required. In fact, that is why ABC Consulting was created: Crystal Stump and her team are so familiar with alcohol regulation that they can provide you with help and information. Today, our YouTube channel serves that same purpose – to educate current and future VA ABC alcohol licensees. If you need an ABC license (or if you want to keep your ABC license), SUBSCRIBE to the channel. Don’t forget to hit the bell notification, so you stay caught up with weekly videos.
