Don Williams is a Certified Restaurant Broker and Franchise Partner for the South Central Virginia area, and a licensed Salesperson by the Virginia Real Estate Board.
Don began his professional life in the U.S. Navy’s nuclear submarine service, then transitioned to the commercial nuclear industry, where he held a number of executive, managerial and technical positions with various companies engaged in the inspection and repair of the nation’s nuclear power plant fleet. Demanding travel requirements necessitated a great deal of dining out, where he developed a passion for sampling new cuisines, which in turn led to an interest in the dining and hospitality industries.
Seeking a new career path, Don became aware of the We Sell Restaurants team and franchise opportunity. Don discovered that his skills in customer service, sales, marketing and financial analysis, coupled with a strong work ethic and attention to detail, were highly relevant and readily transferable to the specialty restaurant brokerage industry. His goal is to connect buyers and sellers and to deliver an unparalleled customer experience and closing rate.
Don is a member of several professional organizations, including the International Business Broker’s Association (IBBA) and the Carolinas Virginia Business Broker’s Association. He holds the title of Certified Restaurant Broker, one of a select group nationwide with this industry-specific training and designation.
