Last year was an extraordinary one for We Sell Restaurants as our dedicated team of restaurant brokers achieved a remarkable feat by selling more restaurants in a single year than ever before. Despite the challenges, such as rising interest rates and ongoing staffing shortages, our clients' trust in our services remained unwavering, as evidenced by the continuous demand for restaurant brokerage and Restaurants for Sale. In fact, restaurants sold across America in 2022 grew 20% over the prior year.
Building upon this momentum, our restaurant brokers just set a new record by selling more restaurants in a single month than ever before. As it ushered in the summer season, May 2023 proved to be a bustling period as ownership of numerous restaurant businesses changed hands.
Let's take a closer look at a snapshot of the remarkable individuals who realized their dreams of becoming restaurant owners in May:

"[Brittney was] Super patient with me! Even blowing up her phone as a first-time restaurant buyer, she always answered or called me back immediately. I knew that if I needed something she was going to answer and that calmed me down.
I really appreciate her time working with me and would highly recommend anyone looking to buy a restaurant to work with Brittney, she really will walk you through the process as she promises! (Even being in different states!)"
