David’s Kitchen in Falkirk gets green light to add alcohol to deliveries
David's Kitchen in Falkirk has been given permission to deliver alcohol along with meals, snacks and groceries.
The hot and cold food takeaway and general store in Dalderse Avenue was given the go-ahead by Falkirk Council's licensing board when it met today (Thursday).
Representing the business, Gordon Emslie told board members that alcohol is a very small part of what is sold.
David's Kitchen is one of the three stores in Scotland, with the other two in Fife.
A pilot operation in Glenrothes showed that only four per cent of sales were alcohol, with the rest takeaway food and groceries.
Mr Emslie added that as a responsible retailer, the store would not sell any alcoholic products that are also high in caffeine and sugar.
Deliveries will be made by a member of staff, rather than a third party, and they will have the mandatory training.
No objections were made to the application.
