Sunapee Restaurant Owner Tapped for NH Liquor Commission

Gov. John Lynch today announced he will nominate Joseph Mollica of Sunapee to serve on the NH Liquor Commission at Wednesday’s Governor and Council meeting. Mollica is the owner of One Mile West Restaurant in Sunapee.

“Joseph Mollica has an exceptional business background and his expertise in the restaurant industry will be an asset to the commission,” Gov. Lynch said. “I know he will bring a valuable perspective to the Liquor Commission.”

The legislature is currently studying various ideas to re-structure the Liquor Commission, including moving from a full-time three-member commission to an executive director model.

If confirmed, Mollica would finish the term of former Commissioner Pat Russell, who retired earlier this year. The term will expire July 1, 2011.

Mollica has more than 20 years experience as a business owner in the restaurant industry, having owned and operated establishments in New Jersey, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. He graduated from the Johnson and Wales University in 1982 with a degree in culinary arts and food service management, according to the governor’s press release.
