Posted by WSR Operations on Aug 18, 2022 11:15:00 AM


With Three-Year Revenue Growth of 94% Percent, We Sell Restaurants Receives Ranking Among America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

On August 16th, 2022, Inc. revealed that We Sell Restaurants is on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

We Sell Restaurants, the nation’s only business brokerage franchise specializing in restaurants, credits its growing success to a strong alignment with the franchise industry and the proprietary software it provides its brokers. The financial performance of their franchises in their Item 19 disclosure at this link demonstrate profitable earnings.

“It is a tremendous honor to rank in the annual Inc. 5000 list because it recognizes how quickly We Sell Restaurants is expanding its footprint across the nation,” said We Sell Restaurants’ CEO Robin Gagnon. “As the only restaurant brokerage franchise in the country, we are committed to providing top-tier services to professionals who are interested in buying or selling a restaurant.”

The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years.

“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”

We Sell Restaurants has experienced record growth in the past several years. A committed focus on franchise resales along with independent restaurant sales across 45 states is attracting experienced single and multi-unit restaurant operators as well as those outside the industry to join the growing brand. For two decades, the franchise has been the most innovative, technologically advanced, and successful restaurant brokerage brand in the nation where they adhere to a mission to “Sell More Restaurants than anyone else –period.”

“When I’m asked about the future of our franchise, I always respond with ‘the sky’s the limit,’” said Gagnon. “I am extremely passionate about growing our brand while maintaining our reputation as the best business broker franchise specializing in restaurant sales.”

We Sell Restaurants has been able to further expand their footprint across the country through franchising. In fact, between 2021 and 2022, the brand has doubled its franchise territories nationwide. The home-based business model has attracted entrepreneurial minds excited about the idea of selling restaurants and helping clients achieve their dreams. Most recently, We Sell Restaurants has welcomed six new franchisees in the last two months. Increasing the number of franchise territories has naturally encouraged growth in sales and inventory as We Sell Restaurants has the ongoing capacity to handle more restaurant business transactions than any other brokerage firm in the nation.  

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, which will be available on August 23.
