A Hagerstown man told Washington County liquor officials on Wednesday that he was interested in buying a popular restaurant on East Franklin Street.
Perry White said during a hearing before the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County that he wanted to buy Laila’s Kitchen at 4 E. Franklin St. near Hagerstown City Hall.
He said he needed to know what he would have to do to apply for a liquor license.
Robert Everhart, liquor board chairman, said that among other things, the business would have to pass inspections from the health and fire departments.
Everhart asked White if the restaurant would be able to seat a minimum of 75 customers, which is a prerequisite to obtaining a liquor license.
