Most places (Flyte included) add the total tax into the price of the cocktail/glass of wine/bottle of wine...15% alcohol tax and 9.25% sales tax...so yes, 24.5%. It's not a new tax...you've been paying it along...most places just don't break it out. It is a way to make your drinks appear cheaper I suppose. So, that $10 glass of wine is really a $7.50 glass (and that $40 bottle of wine is really a $30 bottle of wine) as far as the restaurant is concerned as the balance is just a transfer of money from the guest to the government. Beer, for whatever reason, is considered food and it taxed at the 9.25% sales tax rate. High-alcohol beer is considered a wine/spirit and is taxed at the full 24.5%. Cheers!

Actually, CFA's on NOT locally owned. They are simply locally run. You pay a fee to be an operator, but you never actually own it. Every store is company owned and operating rules are very strict -- andthe gross sales and net profit fees that operators must share each month are very high. That is why the buy-in so ($5,000) low relative to other major franchises and also why they get such a huge number of applicants for each store they open. Not saying it's a bad model, but to say they are locally owned is incorrect.
