Restaurant owners excited about Brunch Bill
Starting October 1st, restaurants in Ozark will start serving up adult beverages at 10:30 on Sunday mornings.
Blue Agave employee, Chantlle Lemaitre says, "It's pretty exciting, really, we've been waiting for this... For quite a while, everywhere else is doing it and Dale County just passed."
Ben Brown is one of the Co-Owners at El Palacio and he says, "I think it's going to be a positive for Dale County, I think it might allow some businesses that are closed on Sundays to open up on Sundays which would help to create more hours and more jobs."
At Buchanans, they shared the news on Facebook when the polls closed. They've already said that when the bill goes into action, their doors will be open on Sundays.
Co-Owner, Patricia Donahue tells us, "It gives people, really again, more options more choices. You have more available to the community, And you're able to keep the money here, instead of having to drive to Dothan, you can come right here in Ozark and spend the money here."
Restaurants and liquor stores in Ozark have a little time to prepare for the extra business. The bill goes into effect on Monday, October 1st.
In addition to restaurants, liquor stores will be able to start selling alcohol after 1:30 P.M. on Sundays.
