Selling a restaurant is a job for an experienced and professional team.  That's why We Sell Restaurants sells more restaurants than anyone else. For two decades, this brand has developed the specific processes to attract hundreds of thousands of buyers and secure millions of dollars in transaction every single year.

Technology for Selling a Restaurant
 
If you're selling a restaurant, technology is an invaluable tool. Our online platform reaches most potential buyers, and social media is used to generate interest and spread the word. We also use technology to create an informative package about your restaurant, and our online listings help us reach the widest possible audience. With so many options available, it's important to consider how technology can best be used to sell your restaurant. By utilizing the right tools, we make the selling process easier and more efficient.
 
We provide access to up to the minute details when your business is listed for sale, providing statistics on how many people have viewed the listing, how many people are actively engaged and who has acknowledged confidentiality on the business and knows it is for sale. All this, while keep the name of the business out of the public domain unless the buyer is fully qualified.
 
Our proprietary back-office platform, the B.O.S.S. (Broker’s Operational and Sales System) tracks the buyer and seller journey. In addition, it stores and tracks all agreements, generates checklists for both buyers and sellers and uploads all changes to external listing sites.
 
Confidentiality When Selling a Restaurant

Confidentiality when selling a restaurant is a key concept that must be considered when selling a restaurant. We Sell Restaurants sets the standard nationwide for this business practice.  Each buyer is contacted and asked to provide proof of funds in an amount that aligns with either the brand requirement or the seller's request before they are provided with a full 20-plus page full color package on the listing. For more information on the requirement for confidentiality agreements when selling a restaurant, read this article.

  • Pricing Above market
  • Taking Your Eye Off the Ball
  • Saying “No” to a Deal
  • Going to Market Without Good Financial Data

Finding a Lender When Selling a Restaurant
 
Most reputable restaurant brokers will have lending sources ready to go for their business opportunities. This is critical since no all lenders are fans of the industry.
