Looking at Italian restaurants for sale? You're not alone! The Restaurant Brokers get lots of calls from those buying a restaurant seeking the most favorite of Americans. How do we know? The National Restaurant Association surveyed Americans, and a whopping 61 percent said they eat Italian food at least once a month while 26 percent said they eat it a few times a year. Compare that to the other two of the “big three” ethnic cuisines in the United States, Mexican and Chinese. Those were eaten at least once a month by 50 percent and 36 percent, respectively. It's no wonder that Italian restaurants for sale are part of our biggest category of businesses for sale and among the most popular.
In fact, when it comes to ethnic food in America, no other cuisine is as popular as Italian food. The other good news if you're considering buying one of our Italian restaurants for sale is that when Zagat surveyed restaurant-goers, they found that 54 percent of those surveyed would happily pay over $20 for a plate of pasta. That's good news for a low-cost item, leading to lower food costs and higher earnings than many other cuisines.
What are the favorite types of pasta? Better know the answer if you're going to buy one of our Italian restaurants for sale. Surprisingly, to the Restaurant Brokers at least, the top three most liked pasta are not spaghetti or lasagna. Instead, it's pappardelle, linguine, and ravioli. Spaghetti came in at number six in the survey of most loved pasta even though the same restaurant-goers said Bolognese is their favorite sauce.
Want some more fun facts about the food offered at our Italian Restaurants for Sale? Here's what the Restaurant Brokers found when we searched on Wikipedia for fun facts about Italian food:
- February 13th is National “Eat Italian Food” Day
- Prosciutto was banned for export to the United States until 1989. Mortadella and Speck were outlawed until 2000. Other meats, including cotechino and zampone, are still banned today.
- Italians do not put meatballs on spaghetti: the average Italian meal is divided into two parts, primo piatto, and secondo piatto.
- It was not until the 1700s until tomato sauce was included with spaghetti in Italian kitchens.
- Italian wedding soup is not a traditional soup served at weddings.
- The term Neapolitan ice cream originated in the United States in the late 19th century and is presumably a reference to the three-layered ice cream cakes of Tortoni, a Neapolitan.
- In the 13th century, the Pope set quality standards for pasta.
- Most Italians eat pasta at least once a day. But that doesn’t mean they eat the same thing every day! There so many ways to eat pasta, with a variety of different toppings and sauces, that they never get bored.
All of this is good news if you're in the market to buy one of our Italian restaurants for sale. This is a cuisine with a huge fan base, an incredible history, and unlimited opportunities.
