About Us/Our Mission

North Carolina – A Control State

The Greensboro ABC Board is appointed by the Greensboro City Council as a local independent political subdivision of the State. The board operates as a separate entity establishing policies and procedures, and the board retains authority to set policy and adopt rules in conformity with state ABC laws and state Commission rules.

The City of Greensboro ABC Board operates solely on the revenue derived from spirit sales in Greensboro. There is no property, state or other local tax used to support ABC operations.  The City of Greensboro Alcoholic Beverage Control manages the sale of distilled spirits through business principles that promote excellence in customer service; administers regulatory provisions; and instills financial accountabilities that benefit those we serve.

Our Mission:

To serve the consumers of Guilford County by dispersing spirituous liquors responsibly, ethically and lawfully. Thereby, protecting the quality of life in our municipality and contributing nearly $4,000,000 annually to the operating budget of the great city of Greensboro. NC and affiliate municipalities.
