Francisco ‘Frank’ Luis Arias Jr. has plans to bring a bottle shop to 1701 S. Central Avenue in Phoenix, according to a liquor license application filed with the State of Arizona. The application was received by the City Clerk on October 18th and is currently pending.
According to the application, Kwikiez, which is applying for a 010 Beer and Wine Store license, will be a “drive-thru or walk-up only concept” with employees only accessing the building’s interior. A floor plan attached to the application shows hot and cold food prep zones; a walk-in cooler for beer, liquor, and soft drinks; and shelves stocked with “general merchandise.” The store is approximately 1,800 square feet and sports a small patio space out front.
Just north of the Maricopa Freeway, Kwikiez will sit at the corner of S. Central and W. Mohave St. Nearby eateries include Ezbachi Japanese Grill, Comedor Guadalajara, and Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles.
We were unable to reach Arias at the time of publication, so you’ll want to keep an eye out for the opening of this extra-convenient convenience store.
