Advice for Buying a Restaurant and Selling a Restaurant

We Sell Restaurants Reminds Veterans which Franchise Restaurants are Offering Freebies for Veterans Day

Posted by Robin Gagnon on Nov 6, 2018 8:51:06 AM

It’s that time of year again where Americans celebrate those who have served this country in the military. Sunday, November 11 is Veterans Day (though it will be observed by banks and the postal service as Monday).  Many of the franchise restaurants and corporate owned stores we represent at We Sell Restaurants are offering veterans a free meal or discounted service. We looked online and found over 80 that we listed below.  We're sure there are even more.  For those who sign up to spend months away from their families securing our freedoms, this seems like a nominal gift.

Flag Photo Veteran Day Facebook PostThese are the franchise restaurants and independent and corporate stores we’re aware of (though there may be more) who will be offering either discounts or free meals to veterans and active duty military personnel.  If you are in a restaurant next week where this offer isn’t in place, you could always offer to take care of the check on behalf of those who take care of our freedom.

Active duty military and veterans with ID will get free or discounted meals at most of the following. Confirm locally before ordering.  Offers usually do not include alcohol or gratuity and can’t be combined with other discounts or coupons.  Check with the individual franchise restaurants listed below for the specific offers which range from free entrees up to a certain price point or a complimentary item from a fixed menu.

Here’s the list of franchise restaurants we’ve put together so far at We Sell Restaurants.  The exciting news is that this list is so extensive ranging from a free draught beer at World of Beer to full complimentary meals at Chili’s Bar and Grill.  If you know of others, post them in the comments section of our blog. Let’s get the word out so our veterans get a meal on the house!

What are America's Favorite Restaurants and are they for Sale?

Posted by Robin Gagnon on Sep 17, 2018 10:07:18 AM

What are America's favorite restaurants and are any of them for sale?  Here are the answers since the latest list has been compiled according to an annual study by the Harris Poll.  The Harris Poll's EquiTrend study monitors thousands of brands.  In this year's study more than 77,000 United States based consumers participated.  They rated more than 3,000 brands across 300 categories, and 80 brands were named "Brand of the Year." 

Some results are expected and duplicate last year.  Other results are pretty surprising!  If these are America's favorites, is there a chance to get your hands on one of your own?  You bet.  The great news is that We Sell Restaurants has some of these very restaurants for sale in in our inventory.  Here are the results by category along with our thoughts on those taking the top spot, or surprisingly enough, not winning "best of" by this poll.  

For the Mexican category, Taco Bell knocked last year's winner, Moe's from the top spot to regain the position they previously held as the number one Mexican favorite.  Among our restaurants for sale, we do not include a Taco Bell but we have strong interest at We Sell Restaurants for virtually anything in this category ranging from fast casual Mexican like Moe's to full service dining.  Check out this current favorite among our Mexican restaurants for sale. Our restaurants for sale in this category range from franchise opportunities to independents.  

In the mood for the classic American Burger?  Five Guys took the top position in this poll.  From our restaurants for sale inventory, this burger chain opportunity tops the list at our website.  While the burger chains focus on the fast food to fast casual style of service, casual dining is a favorite of many consumers.  In that category, the Hollis Poll surfaced a tie.  The top spot was split between The Cheesecake Factory and Texas Roadhouse. Who doesn't love the opportunity to shuck their own peanuts at Texas Roadhouse?  

When it comes to chicken, the favorite is no surprise.  This chain manages to deliver the top average unit volume nationwide combined with incredible customer service.  Chick-Fil-A took top honors and this is a multi-year achievement for the brand.  If sweet is your passion, Krispy Kreme led the list in the coffee shop category.  This one is actually surprising for those of us selling restaurants for a living.  Because the category is coffee shop, we would have expected to see Starbucks take top honors.  Instead, they were knocked off by those who are serving the doughnuts and coffee hot at their locations.  

In the ice cream category, Ben & Jerry's took top honors.  Their eclectic mix of flavors even at premium price points had them leading the way.  In our restaurants for sale inventory, we feature a great opportunity to acquire a Ben & Jerry's delivering six figure income.  Here's a link to that business opportunity in Florida.

America's favorite pizza chain according to the Harris Poll is Blaze Pizza.  Now this was a surprise as Blaze doesn't have the footprint of many other chains.  Considering that they have only 286 stores nationwide, we are actually pretty shocked by this result.  

 For sandwich shops, there was again, a tie for the top position.  Panera Bread and Subway tied for first place in the sandwich shop category.  We have a number of Subway franchises for sale at this link and sandwich shops lead our inventory in store counts and interest by buyers.  Since these are easily operated, well trained by the brands and for the most part, avoid alcohol, late nights and even frying, they are among our most popular restaurants for sale. 

Did the Harris Poll cover your favorites or leave something out?  Send us your comments on this article.

We Sell Restaurants Top Ten Listings for August 2018

Posted by Admin WSR on Sep 4, 2018 12:09:51 PM

By looking at the listings that were most popular this month, we can learn what buyers are looking at, and often see a trend.

 The trend this month is obvious to us, as nine out of ten of the restaurants for sale are open and operating! With only the one lease space making it to our top ten, our buyers have made it pretty clear that what they’re looking for right now is to take over an existing restaurant, rather that starting with their own concept.

 36902-Smash_logo

These two Smashburger locations are successful and producing income, it’s no wonder they’ve topped our list for the month! Tallahassee is in the sunny state of Florida, where we have our home office, which happens to have no state income tax, which is of course an incentive driving buyers interest in these locations.

 

18224-BO_Cover_Pic_final

This adorable, traditional diner serving up a southern twist on East-Coast diner food, has proven itself to the locals of the town, earning a whole cast of regulars. With consistent food and performance, this diner has earned a number ONE rating for breakfast and brunch restaurants in the city! Everything is set up and clearly running well, all it needs now is a new owner!

 

 

99627-beer-218148_960_720

This microbrewery in Colorado is one of two on our list this month not from Georgia or Florida, but not without good reason. This fantastic Brewery has a Manufacture and Wholesale License that will transfer, as well as several accounts for off-premises sales that are also included. There is a Master Brewer willing to stay on a permanent basis, which is a rare gift to a new brewery owner!

 

 

_2018-07-11_13_57_bar-918541_1920

Well-reviewed and profitable, this next restaurant on our list features a bar, and has made it onto our top ten list, despite not being on the market for even two whole months! Clearly there’s something special about this Tex-Mex restaurant, maybe it’s the verifiable success even with it being a relatively new restaurant, maybe it’s the fantastic location!

 

 

_2018-08-13_11_36_dtss%20main%20photo

Another restaurant that has made it far in few days, this café has been on the market less than a month, and has just rocketed up to our top ten! With this kind of attention, it should sell quickly, but we feel like it would anyway, it’s adorable, has a fantastic price and rent, and is in an amazing main street location! With the potential to grow that this café provides, it’s easy to see why it’s so popular!

 

 

23301-Picture1

The next listing on our top ten list this month is our only lease space this month, but it’s as popular as it’s ever been! It’s perfect for anyone who has their concept already, but just needs a space to put it in place! A second-generation lease space, like this one, has advantages over spaces that have not previously had open and operating restaurants in them. Things like the restaurant infrastructure like an in-ground grease trap and a hood system are already in place!

 

_2018-07-18_12_15_atlanta-georgia-usa-world-wallpaper-1920x1080-1358

This restaurant is open, but is approved for almost any concept by the landlord and is a fantastic opportunity to grow a business! With a fully equipped kitchen, below market rent, and a lease that’s valid through 2024, it’s easy to see why this restaurant is so popular with buyers. This location has an amazing price that is attracting a lot of attention, but all the other great features are what keeps people coming back!

 

 

77011-cheese-crust-delicious-166451

This Profitable pizzeria in Palm Beach County has developed a loyal following in customers, and a new following in potential buyers! Already on out top ten list this welcoming pizzeria is fully equipped is one of two restaurants on our list in Florida, and is just waiting to welcome a new owner with open arms and no income tax!

 

 

14716-pizza

Rounding out the top ten this month is the only restaurant in Texas to make the list, and it’s a franchise location brimming with potential! Part of a growing franchise this restaurant blends the simplicity of a pizzeria and the freshness of an upscale Italian eatery, serving high quality food in a fast-casual dining environment. With the current owner leaving the country, they won’t be backing out of this incredible deal!

 

 

 

All but one of the listings on our website that made it to the top this month were open and operating restaurants, pretty clearly telling us what buyers are looking at. But we also learned where they’re looking, with 60% of this month’s list being restaurants in Georgia, although 20% was from Florida, and Texas and even Colorado made appearances. No matter where you’re looking, if you haven’t found the right one yet, the restaurant brokers can help you.

The Restaurant Brokers Share the 10 Most Popular Restaurants for Sale in 2017

Posted by Robin Gagnon on Jan 22, 2018 6:41:19 PM

Wondering what the most popular restaurants for sale were in 2017 on our powerhouse website? We were too!  That's why we ran a report to find out. The answers might surprise you.

 

Golden Birthday Dinner Party Dishes Social Media Post.png

Of the most popular listings, four of the 10, or forty percent, were franchise restaurants forsale listings while two were restaurant for lease locations.  The remaining most popular restaurants for sale were indepedent oncepts, ranging from money-makers to asset sales. 

Landing at the top of the most popular restaurants for sale based on page views was a package of three Papa John's restaurants for sale in South Carolina.  These stores were only listed for a few short months before gaining hundreds of signed confidentiality agreements and going in to contract.  The three pizza restaurants for sale were grossing over $1 million dollars in sales volume with an absentee owner.  The buyer plans to be full time in managing the locations going forward which are all located in the central Florida market.  What caused this owner to sell his restaurants?  He was an absentee operator and moved into a very successful unrelated business requiring his full time expertise.  The restaurant brokers were excited to see this fast turning multi-unit franchise restaurants for sale listing at the top of the list. 

Who came in second place?  It was a Whopper of a deal!  The second most popular listing in the restaurant brokers inventory for the year was a Burger King restaurant for sale in Cobb County, Georgia.  The traffic was off the charts on views on the We Sell Restaurants website despite being sold in a prior year! That gives you an idea of what people are searching for as they go online looking for the best restaurants for sale in the country. 

Third on the list of most popular restaurants for sale based on page views was a Subway franchise for sale in Palm Beach Gardens Florida.  Part of one of the world's largest franchise groups, this Subway franchise for sale sold in February but still kept pulling traffic to the highest ranking restaurants for sale website for months after that. 

What type of listing gets a lot of views?  One offered by the restaurant brokers with the words, "Lounge & Bar" in the title.  One of the most viewed pages of the year was another sold listing -- a Lounge and Bar in Smyrna Georgia that racked up thousands of views. 

A restaurant space for lease in Fort Lauderdale Florida, also racked up thousands of views for the year 2017.  The former Tedesco Pizzeria, sold by Restaurant Broker Ken Eisenband, was number five on the top ten restaurants for sale this year on our website. 

Another Florida listing, the "Meatball Market" was also front and center of those clicking and viewing the restaurants for sale online.  This pizzeria for sale location was a hit with restaurant buyers since it was both recently remodeled and served up Italian specialities.  The location, in a shopping plaza on a main road with traffic counts of 23,000 vehicles per day and a nearby and very large active adult community were also key factors in the sale.  Strong demographics with more than 110,000 residents with an average household income of $70,000 drove buyers to this restaurant for sale.

Another Georgia listing with thousands of views was The Plant in Atlanta Georgia.  This restaurant for sale, offered by restaurant broker Steve Weinbaum garnered a lot of looks in a short period of time on the market. 

Restaurant Space for Lease is always attractive for buyers and a location in Johns Creek at Abbotts Village was number eight on the list of the most popular restaurants for lease or sale in 2017.  This location drove strong interest and was represented by Cyndi Weinbaum. 

An established food truck for sale in South Florida brings us near the end of the top ten restaurants for sale viewed on our website in 2017.  The event relationships already in place for this Chicken Wing and Burger Truck had a lot of buyers focused on this business opportunity.  No one's pulled the trigger to buy this food truck for sale yet and it's still on the market and gettin lots of traffic each day.

The final entry into the top ten restaurants for sale is a small franchise location in Austin Texas represented by franchise partner and Certified Restaurant Broker Dave Duce.  With well over a thousand views, this proves that things are bigger in Texas!

This diner for sale in Royal Palm Beach Florida is Now Sold!

Posted by Robin Gagnon on Dec 6, 2017 10:00:00 AM

Royal Palm Beach’s Wild West Diner is no longer a diner for sale in Florida. The business was on the market for just over six months when it sold with the efforst of Certified Restaurant Broker Ken Eisenband.

The new owner, Larry Marble, found this diner for sale online and decided he would not miss out on the opportunity offered by the Restaurant Brokers.  Marble, aWild West Diner.jpg military veteran, is an existing operator.  He owns Pirate’s Well in Lake Park, Florida, and with the massive success he has had at that location, he decided to buy the Wild West diner for sale to convert into a second Pirate’s Well establishment. The sellers, Wild West Diner, LLC began the business in 2014, and due to health issues decided to list the diner for sale with the Restaurant Brokers.

What used to be a diner for sale has now been transformed into a bar and restaurant with menu items including lobster mac & cheese, wings, tasty burgers, pizza, tacos, steaks, chicken and seafood.

Posted by Robin Gagnon on Dec 1, 2017 10:00:00 AM

Are you a super entrepreneur looking to become the owner of multi-unit franchises for sale? The Restaurant Brokers have the listings for franchises for sale that you are looking for! What about those who aren’t sure that they are ready to own multiple franchises for sale, but want to dig into the world of becoming a franchisee? No worries – most of our multi-unit franchises for sale also have the option to buy the stores on an individual basis.

New Call-to-action

First up on our roster of franchises for sale is an extremely popular group of three custom made-to-order sandwich and sub stores in Forsyth and Guilford Counties. What the Restaurant Brokers love about these franchises for sale is that all three locations are no more than 45 minutes from each other – making it easy to be an active owner/operator at each location without having to sacrifice time spent traveling from store to store.

The two Forsyth County locations of these nationally recognized franchises for sale are netting a combined sales of over $907,000 annually. The current owner is taking home nearly $121,000. It gets better! Of these two franchises for sale, this listing includes rights for the new owner to develop another location within the same market! This has a value of $25,000 for the development rights that is included in the purchase price of this listing. Scoop up this listing as well as the other that can be found here, and that gives you the potential to own not just two, but three of these franchises for sale upon development of the third!

Next on our list is this pair of Lenny’s Grill & Subs franchises for sale in Mississippi. The combined sales at these two locations is over $1 million annually! The current owner is bringing home an income of almost $105,000. This Lenny’s listing can improve its sales figures even more with the addition of an owner operator, as the current owner is absentee. This second Lenny’s location is doing incredible, and has an affordable rent rate of just $4,000 per month.

The final duo in our franchises for sale listings are these two Firehouse Subs locations in Kentucky. Another group of money-making franchises for sale, these two locations are reaching combined sales levels of over $900,000. The current owner is bringing home over $86,000! Leases for these locations are negotiable with the landlord and they are both located in excellent markets where the population is abundant.

The Restaurant Brokers Share Bargain Restaurants for Sale in Honor of Black Friday

Posted by Robin Gagnon on Nov 24, 2017 10:00:00 AM

In honor of all of the hot sales going on today for Black Friday, the Restaurant Brokers didn’t want to miss the opportunity to share our deals with those of you searching for a restaurant for sale. What do the Restaurant Brokers consider a hot Black Friday restaurant for sale deal? One of our many asset restaurant for sale listings that are $75,000 or less! Some may say, “I am pretty sure I can lease a restaurant space for far less than $75,000, why should I buy an asset restaurant sale?” The Restaurant Brokers are here to tell you exactly why you should consider an asset restaurant for sale as opposed to leasing a restaurant space.

Black Friday Sweet Deals.png

First off, many restaurant spaces for lease are just that – space. Sure, some of them have a build out that has been started, but starting tends to be where they were also finished. Many of these leased spaces have little to no kitchen equipment. What’s that mean? Simply, you, the lessee, is responsible for the purchase of the equipment. “Well, I can just buy used restaurant equipment, how bad can that be?” While used kitchen equipment is a great option, keep in mind you will be spending a minimum of $35,000 to $45,000 on just the equipment.

After the equipment is purchased, it needs to be delivered to your location and then installed. You can expect to shell out anywhere from $2,000 to $5,000 for this. Now, you have it all delivered and installed, you’re ready to fire it all up for a test run, and you discover that two thirds of the equipment doesn’t work. Now what? You will either have to pay someone to come in and inspect and fix the equipment (if it’s fixable), or look for different equipment. As you can see, this can be very pricey.

You may say, “The restaurant space for lease I found already has the kitchen equipment and it’s brand new – the previous renter installed the kitchen and ran out of money, I just need to finish the rest.” Just like ANY renovation or build-out, to do this in a restaurant space for lease is no different. You are looking at $90,000 and up for just a 900 square foot space!

An asset restaurant for sale is sounding a whole lot better now, how about it? The Restaurant Brokers have lots of asset restaurant for sale listings, and we are sure that we have the perfect one to suit your needs! Take a look at a few of these deals that are priced right up there with the rest of the Black Friday deals going on all across the country today:

First up on our list is a listing for only $29,000. You may be thinking, “There’s no way I can get anything decent for that price.” Think again. This restaurant for sale is located in Austin, Texas in a developing party of the city. Currently this is operating as a sub shop, but it’s ready for you to bring your own concept. It would be perfect to run a café, small bar, bistro, or carry-out business! The possibilities are endless with this little gem, and rent is only $1,851 per month. Click here to check out this listing!

Next up is a buffet-style restaurant for sale in Blount County, Tennessee that is in a stand-alone building and includes a retail store! Keep this as your own to sell trinkets or homemade goods, or lease it to another tenant! The possibilities are endless in this 5,800 square foot location with a rent set at an unheard of $2,500 per month! You get all of this and a fully equipped kitchen for just $55,000 – wow! What a deal – check it out here!

Our final Black Friday restaurant for sale deal is almost too good to be true – a sandwich shop restaurant for sale in Golden, Colorado for just $50,000! This business is located in a busy strip mall, high school, and residential neighborhoods. The location is an easily manageable 1,050 square feet with seating for 24 guests for just $1,650 per month.
