Evan from Richardson
After 16 years of working in the field, Evan was excited to open his own distillery in the city of Richardson. As a Richardson resident with two children attending Richardson ISD schools, he looked forward to the prospect of contributing to the community he loved.
He applied for the proper permits to open his business but faced a delay as the government shutdown in January slowed down processing of permit applications. With an estimated 150 day delay, Evan turned to Rep. Allred’s office for help.
After asking the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau for expedited processing on his behalf, Rep. Allred was able to get Evan the necessary permits within 15 days. Now he is on track to open his business in Richardson later this year, and is excited to grow with the city.
