Restaurant Brokers Give Thanks this Holiday Season

Posted by Robin Gagnon on Nov 25, 2021 7:00:00 AM


Can you see it yet? Families bustling away in the kitchen to plate a full, delicious Thanksgiving meal. Friends gathering to catch up and exchange stories since they’ve been apart. Couples hitting the road to a dream destination. People taking time for themselves to refresh and reinvigorate their lifestyle. Holiday lights beginning to twinkle around the neighborhoods. A few Christmas Trees peaking in the window. Menorahs waiting for the Festival of Lights, and dozens of other holidays on their way in a variety of religions, cultures, and social circles.

The Holiday Season is upon us, and there couldn’t be a more appropriate time to pause and be grateful for the year behind and the year to come. The restaurant brokers give thanks this season as we prepare to spend the holidays with our families and loved ones.

2021 brought its fair share of roadblocks and challenges. Despite all, the restaurant brokers continue to be thankful that we serve a market so resilient as the restaurant industry. Even more so, the restaurant brokers and We Sell Restaurants brand are thankful for the blessings we were able to count over the past year. Here are just a few of what our Certified Restaurant Brokers® and We Sell Restaurants family would like to give thanks for this holiday season:

Eric Gagnon, Founder & President: Thankful for our team and our franchisees, and all our buyers and sellers that we have helped over the years!
