Each month, the restaurant brokers at We Sell Restaurants release the Top 10 Best Restaurants for Sale based on active buyer interest. We measure the number of signed Confidentiality Agreements on each listing to determine which restaurants for sale saw the most buyer attention throughout the month. The acknowledgement of confidentiality on a listing indicates a buyer with strong enough interest in a restaurant for sale that they have taken the next step to complete buyer prequalification and access the full listing package. 

At the outset of 2024, January's best restaurants for sale range from low-cost quick service concepts to unique hookah bars and more. Overwhelmingly, the Top 10 Best Restaurants for Sale are available for under $100,000 today. Join us in revisiting the most popular restaurant sale last month:
