Liquor sales tax revenue up in Pigeon Forge


What was a controversial new ordinance is now driving a big payout for Pigeon Forge.

City Assistant Manager Eric Brackins says the city has earned almost $100,000 extra since voters approved liquor by the drink.

The city collected $48,000 from wine sales from February 2012 to January 2013. Over the 12 months after that, the city earned $144,000 in liquor and wine sales.

Brackins expects that revenue to jump even higher when a new Hard Rock Cafe, Margaritaville, and Paula Deen's restaurant move into the city.
