It was a red hot summer in more ways than one with restaurant for sale listings selling faster than we could get them on the website and lots of activity on listings taken by the restaurant brokiers.  The most popular listing for the month of July was offered by restaurant broker Emily Yessick.  This Italian restuarant for sale in Marietta is in a prime location which brought plenty of restaurant buyers into the mix.  

The most popular restaurant for sale listings are gauged by the phone calls, traffic on our powerhouse restaurant for sale website and signed confidentiality agreements generated by buyers.
