Top 10 Restaurants for Sale in Atlanta - April 2012 Edition

Posted by Robin Gagnon on May 1, 2012 5:42:00 AM

Here are the Top 10 Restaurants for Sale in Atlanta in April 2012. We measure the top 10 by the number of confidentiality agreements viewed, buyer inquiries and website views. 

Pricing was key in making the April 2012 list. Another big stand out was location.  Unlike those that are sandwiched between other businesses in a shopping center, a free standing space commands strong attention.   Almost half the top restaurants for sale in Atlanta last month were free standing buildings. 

The most popular listing (3673) in the market is a fully equipped restaurant with a low monthly rent and zero cost to take over the assets. Why didn't it sell?  It did. Multiple times.  This restaurant had several offers but the landlord is being very choosy about who he wants in the space so it remains available until we get the perfect fit.

The second most popular listing was released in the last week of April.  Priced under $50,000, another fully equipped but closed restaurant space.  This free standing location in Marietta looks like it's going fast.
