Are you selling your restaurant? Are you ready?

Business Broker for Restaurant

Have you thought about selling your restaurant? Are you ready to sell and let go? Selling a restaurant can be a mentally tough and draining decision. Several restaurant owners view ownership of a restaurant as having a child, an business identity, a way to provide for the family, and a legacy.

According to Forbes, baby Boomers, defined as people born between the years 1946 and 1964, account for approximately 40 percent of small business or franchise ownership.

Forbes also states that the Baby Boomer generation accounts for an estimated 2.3 million small businesses in the United States, employing over 25 million people. Many of these businesses are thriving, and nearly 60 percent have no succession or transition plan in place.

The Baby Boomer population today is listing restaurants for sale or looking for a restaurant valuation to consider their options to sell a restaurant.

Reasons for Baby Boomers to Sell a Restaurant:

  1. Pandemic
  2. Work labor shortage
  3. Inflation
  4. Retirement
  5. Health
  6. Divorce
  7. Partnership Issues
