Advice for Buying a Restaurant and Selling a Restaurant

Top Ten Restaurants for Sale in February 2014

Posted by WSR Operations on Mar 18, 2014 6:16:00 PM

The top ten restaurants for sale last month had a clear "leader of the pack" as the restaurant brokers announced a Subway restaurant franchise for sale in Georgia.  This hot listing had the phones ringing, the website buzzing and the town talking.  We received multiple offers in a matter of days and have two contracts in place from buyers going through the Subway approval process.  That certainly demonstrates the impact of supply and demand.  A Subway restaurant for sale is a rare find as a single unit since most transfer into the hands of other franchisees rather than hitting the open market.  That being said, the restaurant brokers have a second Subway franchise restaurant for sale in Connecticut that is also generating strong interest.
