About Us

Our Background

A bit of background on Hernandez & Associates, We have been in the Hospitality industry helping clients apply for their Liquor permits (TABC) in Texas for over 30 years. We have worked with clients that are large corporate chains that have many locations.

Clients that have large catering contracts that would service festivals and events such as the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. We also enjoy working with the smaller Mom and Pop establishments that may only have 1-5 locations. Regardless of size or who your clientele is we treat all our clients with the same level of respect. We understand that your business means the world to you and we set out every day to treat your business like our own!

Our Clients

You will find out that when it comes to our clients though they vary in size they are all treated the same. One thing you may find interesting is that not all our clients are Restaurants. We have clients that are Bars and Liquor stores, with these clients though it is always important to be compliant with TABC regulations it is especially true because if you can’t sell alcohol at a location it will be crippling to future business. We have clients that are Hookah bars, established or not, adding liquor to your menu can increase sales to drive profits.

Wholesalers & Distributors are another piece of the hospitality puzzle we service this indicates that we work with Breweries and Wineries, in recent years we have seen an increase in these types of businesses applying for permits.

Furthermore, a few Businesses that are equally as popular that we have occasionally got the opportunity to work with is Caterers, Event Planners, and Special Event Venues, these types of businesses can get permits too.

Non-Profits and Churches will often apply for Alcohol permits when they host Fundraiser events. Permit holders are not limited to the above they come in many shapes and sizes, we look forward to working with every one of you.

If you are wondering where does Hernandez & Associates process applications. We are based out of Houston, Texas and primarily we find that our clients are in Texas. We know that our clients may like to expand or work with other companies outside of the state. In these circumstances, we do find ourselves working in other states. This means that in most cases we can get you Liquor permits in any states even if it isn’t Texas. If this is what you are looking for be sure to contact us for more details.

Hernandez & Associates uses many methods to overcome the obstacles that we are faced with. Using our vast team of associates, it gives us the knowledge and confidence to navigate just about any issue that may arise. Whether that issue appears during the Liquor permit process or when the client first begins their journey in the business, we will be able to conquer any obstacle.

Our Other Services

It may seem like Hernandez & Associates only processes Liquor permits (TABC permits) in Texas, however, we are versed in many different avenues. Depending on the type of business you have we may need to apply for permits at the Federal level. The Federal version of TABC is TTB which is the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau. We are familiar with these types of permits so applying for them won’t be an issue. As mentioned above we prefer to get you as early in the application process as possible the reason being is so we can set up your Entity which we can discuss further with you when it is time to apply for the TABC permits. The type of entity we form is important because it is the foundation of your business and can determine the amount of liability you might face in the case of a lawsuit*.

We can also help you get a Sales Tax permit, if you offer Taxable goods or services you will need a Sales Tax permit. If you are needing to purchase Bonds, we can get them for you. Certain (TABC) Liquor permits will require you to obtain bonds. There are other security methods besides obtaining bonds that we can discuss with you when the time comes. We can also obtain any other type of bonds that are not related to liquor.
