Office building cafe locations in metro markets are always on the list of the best restaurants for sale, especially since they traditionally feature very low rental rates and minimal operating hours.  For high rise buildings in major metro areas, these are often subsidized by the landlord in return for offering this amenity to their tenants.  A two-store package priced to move by Restaurant Broker Robin Gagnon made the top ten this month.

Overall, the best restaurants for sale this month were strongly focused on Florida.  That could be the focus in other markets on getting children through the school year and kicking off vacations.  There is a seasonality to the sales cycle depending on where the business is located.  Florida, with its strong second home and older residents, peaks differently than other markets.
