That closes out the top ten restaurant for sale listings for We Sell Restaurants in the month of May. Many of these are already leading to contracts and while Eric Gagnon says, "Summer is typically a slower time period" he notes that "website traffic and buyer inquiries are off the chart this year."

Restaurant Broker Robin Gagnon agreed, adding that "franchise re-sales have skyrocketed over the last year with our firm and we find that timing is irrelevant to buyers making decisions to buy a restaurant franchise."
