According to Scott Hardin, Spokesperson/Communications Director Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration the following were granted permits:

The three were drawn from all the applications submitted to the ABC Division.

The three applicants will go before the ABC Board on October 9 to discuss their plans. The board will then vote whether to formally approve each applicant for a permit. If approved on the 9th, the permits may not be formally awarded until 30 days after the meeting date.
