Commission rejects wash’s beer and wine proposal

WHITTIER, Calif. — City commissioners said too many businesses are already selling alcoholic beverages in the area, creating an overconcentration.

WHITTIER, Calif. — The Whittier Planning Commission unanimously voted (three to zero) to reject Whittier Car Wash and Cafe’s request to sell beer and wine, according to the Whittier Daily News.

City commissioners said too many businesses are already selling alcoholic beverages in the area, stated the article, creating “an overconcentration.”

Additionally, the article added, three schools are within 2,000 feet of the carwash.

“I am concerned about those that come in for a carwash, have a quick [beer] and take off, especially how close the schools are and how busy Whittier Boulevard can be,” said Wes Murray, planning commissioner, in the article.

However, Freddie Esmaili, owner of Whittier Car Wash and Cafe, presented petitions signed by 1,000 people in support of permitting him the right to sell beer and wine, noted the article.

“Our market analysis convinced us there’s a need, and this petition … demonstrates there is a pent-up demand that needs to be fulfilled,” stated Esmaili in the article.
