February was another month full of high interest in lower cost opportunities with more than half of the top restaurants for sale available under $100,000. These favorable price tags seemed to have caught our buyers' eyes all month long. 

Beyond listing prices, we also saw restaurants for sale in Georgia, Florida, Colorado, and Carolina markets dominate the top 10 list.
