A franchise owner of T.G.I. Fridays is going to pay $500,000 for replacing top shelf liquor with a cheap replacement. Briad Group, a franchisee of the T.G.I. Friday’s restaurants in New Jersey raided in May as part of “Operation Swill,” will pay the fine. Briad will pay the ABC $400,000 for its violations plus $100,000 for investigative costs. In addition, a five-day suspension for each establishment will be held in abeyance until June 30, 2014; those days will be dismissed if there are no further drink-substituting charges.
