MINOT, N.D. — Some business owners in Minot say a change to the city’s liquor ordinance that restricts their hours of operation is changing the way they run their businesses.
KXMC-TV reports the city council amended the liquor license ordinance in early June so that businesses with supper club licenses may only sell liquor for one hour after kitchen operations cease.
The rule also requires supper clubs to provide annual financial statements proving they meet the requirement that more than half of their business comes from food sales.
Sweet and Flour owner Shanda Cool says the new rule has stifled their creativity when crafting their menu.
Cool says because they now have to serve food later at night, they have to put items on the menu that less experienced cooks can make.
