Franchise Restaurants are growing in Nigeria at a rapid pace. Franchise Brands have found the recipe for success growing in Africa’s most populated Country. The growing popularity of Pizza, Chicken, and Hamburgers is leading the franchise growth.
Dallas Restaurant Broker Dominique Maddox recently visited Nigeria in June. The last time Maddox saw the Country was in 2013, and so much has changed regarding Franchise Restaurants’ development and availability in Nigeria.
This blog will cover my recent experience enjoying the Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) Franchise scene in Abuja, Nigeria.
Abuja, Nigeria, has always had several indigenous fast-food chains like Mr. Biggs, Chicken Republic, and Tantalizers since my first trip to Abuja in 2007. The past 15 years have grown with popular American Restaurant Franchise brands.
I was able to find the following Quick Service Brands while visiting:
-Kentucky Fried Chicken
-Cold Stone Creamery
How was the food?
I consider myself a foodie and someone that provides great feedback when it comes to food. These are my following opinions:
Overall, the food taste was different than the franchise brand taste I was used to living in the United States. The interior design was like current franchise specifications.
– The level of sweetness in the food is lower in sweets and ice cream
-The burgers have a lower level of fat content and flavor
– The pizzas did not have enough cheese, and the pepperoni was different in taste
-The restaurant scenery felt like a franchise brand
-The employee training was good, systems were in place, measurements were used for food preparation, and some brands had uniforms.
-Most franchise brands have security guards outside to control traffic
-Food delivery times were similar to the United States
-Pizza Hut had premade tables with plates and dining ware to encourage dining in
-Pizza Hut offered Halal Meat on all Pizzas
–Good effort to recreate franchise brand taste while changing menu to fit the regional taste
-Food menus easy to understand and read
The explosion of popularity of the fast-food industry has reached Nigeria, and it’s growing. The current most popular fast-food chains in Nigeria are McDonald’s, Subway, and Burger King. It’s a lucrative opportunity to grow a Restaurant Franchise Brand in the Country.
Quick Service fast food is a universal language understood around the world. The franchise model is often described as working for yourself but not by yourself. Nigeria and Restaurant Franchise Brands have a partnership that will keep growing in popularity.
**This blog was dedicated to my Brother Ikhide, who recently passed away at the young age of 30. My trip to Nigeria was originally to celebrate his life**

The title Dallas Restaurant Broker Dominique Maddox is a title I’m still getting used to hearing. I relocated from Atlanta, Georgia, to Dallas, Texas, in August 2021 to expand my Restaurant Brokerage firm.
My story starts in Anchorage, Alaska, where I lived from 1981-2000; I received a football scholarship to attend Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA. After high school, I actually thought about attending culinary arts school to become a chef. My ambitions of a culinary arts career ended when I visited Atlanta, Georgia, on my football recruiting trip to Morehouse; I knew Morehouse was for me.
My life is full of examples of my ambitions and goals of always “betting on myself.” I left Corporate America in 2008 to go full-time in Real Estate. Well, I couldn’t have chosen a worse time to get introduced to residential home sales.
During this time, homes in Atlanta, Georgia, were selling for unbelievable discount prices; I would always get the investors looking for homes in the price range of $10,000-$100,000. The first home I sold in Atlanta was for $10,000 in an area that sells for over $200,000 today’s market.
I always had dreams of getting into Commercial Real Estate. My life changed in September 2010; I received a random email asking if I ever thought about being a Business Intermediary and selling restaurants?
Well, I had never thought about selling a restaurant, but I was very interested in the opportunity. My interview was a couple days later, and the next thing I knew, I was a Restaurant Broker.
I worked with the Nation’s Largest Restaurant Brokerage firm for 7 years, ranging from Restaurant Broker to Sales Development Manager. I began to notice I had reached a glass ceiling with the opportunity and wanted change.
I opened EATS Restaurant Brokers in October 2019 in Atlanta to bring a new flavor to the Restaurant Brokerage Industry and bring diversity. I decided to change the company name to EATS Broker in December 2021.
Dallas Restaurant Broker Dominique Maddox biggest lessons:
- Selling a restaurant is like a combat sport; the Restaurant Broker has to contact buyers. It’s game day when it comes to selling the restaurant to a new buyer on the phone or by email.
- Only 30%-40% of restaurants listed for sale will actually be sold, and only 2% of buyers on the market looking for a restaurant to buy will actually buy.
- The platform of owning EATS Broker has given me a purpose to help people realize the American Dream of owning a restaurant or selling a restaurant.
I have also been blessed and humbled by the people that have reached out to me for guidance on selling a restaurant, buying a restaurant, or leasing a restaurant.

A cloud kitchen is a commercial kitchen, sometimes called a “ghost kitchen,” used for delivery-only or pick-up restaurants. New restauranteurs and current restaurant owners are expanding menu offerings and increasing delivery orders by opening cloud kitchens.
The popularity of ghost kitchens has increased over the years. Today consumers ordering food online might be shocked to find out they have ordered from a ghost kitchen restaurant.
Ghost kitchen restaurants can be open for a fraction of the price versus a brick-and-mortar location. Cloud kitchen restaurants are considered a low-risk method to grow a restaurant business and menu selections. They handle the logistics and fulfillment while the restaurant owner only has to worry about the cooking.
Dallas Restaurant Broker Dominique Maddox says, “ cloud kitchens are opening opportunities for new or current restauranteurs to open restaurant concepts with less capital investment and risk.
Ghost kitchens are a popular business model providing a solution for restaurant owners to expand delivery areas and increase pick up orders”.
The Restaurant Brokers at EATS Broker compares Cloud kitchen restaurants vs. Brick and Mortar restaurants:
Capital Investment( upfront cost) Cloud Kitchens- $30,000 vs. Brick and Mortar $100,000-$300,000
- Staff required
Cloud Kitchens 2-6 employees vs. Brick and Mortar 10-30 employees
- Time required to open
Cloud Kitchens 2-4 weeks vs. Brick and Mortar 4 months-1 year
- Real Estate and Location
Cloud Kitchens- 200-300 sq. ft. vs. Brick and Mortar 1000-5000 sq. ft.
Cloud Kitchens-delivery hotspot with low cost and low traffic.
Brick and Mortar- high price, need prime location, good locations can be hard to find.
- Breakeven Point
Cloud Kitchens- 6 months – 1 year vs. Brick and Mortar- 2 years-5 years
Critical takeaways for Cloud Kitchens/ Ghost Kitchens
They provide excellent delivery and pick up opportunities
Allows restauranteurs to experiment with low risk
Allows restaurant owners to build multiple concepts out of one kitchen
Cuts costs for front and back of house labor costs
The kitchen features an exhaust hood, three comp sinks, prep sink, hand sink, and grease trap.

Restaurant Broker what I like about the business is a blog written from my viewpoint after being a successful Restaurant Resale Specialist for almost ten years.
I’m currently the Founder and President of EATS Restaurant Brokers, a brokerage firm specializing in selling Franchise Resales, independently owned restaurants, bars, and nightclubs.
The problematic fact about being a Restaurant Resale Specialist is that the average time to sell a restaurant is 6-8 months. The harsh reality is that only about 20%-30% of all restaurants listed for sale will actually sell to a new buyer. Most locations will be closed and returned back to the landlord.
The average survival time for a Restaurant Broker working full-time as a Restaurant Resale Specialist is less than 2 years.
You might be asking yourself, what do I like about the business if everything is negative?
My career as a Restaurant Broker started in 2010; I was told during the interview that it would take 6-8 months before I received a commission. I was broke at the time, but I believed in myself, and I was interested in becoming a franchise resale specialist.
Fast forward to October 2021, and EATS Restaurant Brokers is based out of Dallas, Texas. Our company sells restaurants in over 15 states. We hold a Brokers Real Estate License in Texas and Georgia.
What do I like about the business as a Restaurant Broker?
- Affect Peoples Lives– People usually want to sell a restaurant because of personal reasons. When a restaurant owner can sell a restaurant, their personal life is generally affected positively.
The restaurant owner’s life can be draining on an individual’s personal life. Sometimes selling a restaurant will help multiple personal issues, but it can’t solve all problems.
On the buyer side, they have just realized the American Dream of business ownership. Buyers come into restaurant ownership with new energy and commitment to be successful. Buyers are fulfilling a life dream, buying for income, having a family recipe, and etc.
- Selling restaurants in multiple states– Every state requires a real estate license to sell real estate or real property but doesn’t for the sale of a business. Currently, 19 states require a Business Broker to hold a real estate license in the state to sell restaurants; most are located on the West Coast.
EATS Restaurant Brokers sells restaurants in Texas, Georgia, Oklahoma, Iowa, Missouri, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Alabama.
- Eating at Various Restaurants– I’m a self-proclaimed Foodie, so I choose the right industry. Part of my job description is to try several different restaurants weekly. When I’m working with a client or trying to become a franchise resale specialist for a Franchisor, I like to experience the food.
This year I flew to Indianapolis, IN, to visit a client that owns a franchise restaurant and drove to Clark County, OH, to meet with another client and enjoyed some great BBQ.

Restaurant Resales are HOT regarding buyer’s demand as restaurant sale prices jump 34% in 2021 compared to 2020. BizBuySell’s Insight Report just released its report for Quarter 2 of 2021. Restaurant resale numbers are showing very promising growth and buyer interest. Restaurant resales headline growth as the buyer market seeks reopening opportunities.
Now with restrictions lifted across most industries, buyers are turning to restaurant acquisitions. Restaurants, specifically, was a sector that was drastically affected by the shutdown is coming back strong. While transactions are up 38% over the same time last year at the height of pandemic lockdowns, they are still 16% below Q2 2019 pre-pandemic levels leaving further room for recovery, according to BizBuySell Insight Report.
The restaurant for sale sector sees growth, with restaurant acquisitions up 17% in the second quarter of 2021. In addition to the bounce back in transactions, sale prices increased 34% versus Q1, tied to a 20% increase in median cash flow, according to BizBuySell Insight Report.
Dominique Maddox of EATS Restaurant Brokers says, “Labor Shortage, former employees seeking independence, and restaurant owners seeking retirement are increasing the number of restaurant acquisitions on the market.”
Restaurant Sellers and Restaurant Brokers will be happy to know that restaurants for sale during quarter two of 2021 had 190 median days on the market compared to 219 days quarter two of 2019. This data shows that restaurants are popular when it comes to buyer demand.
Dine-in establishments are expected to increase in market value as restaurant restrictions are lifted in most states. They are at the same time experiencing pressure for the labor shortage. A majority of restaurants have made tough decisions that have included reducing operating hours, closing for days, or going out of business.
The business-for-sale market continued to make gains in the second quarter of 2021, with closed transactions up 5% over the previous quarter. For bargain hunters, this may signal a closing window of the great opportunities made available a year ago, according to BizBuySell’s Insight Report.

I wrote a blog last year about my daily activities by the minute as a Restaurant Broker that received great interest and replies. I have decided to start a series of blogs about some of my most exciting days as a Restaurant Broker. This blog covers a day where I drove 900 miles round trip in a day to visit four potential restaurant listings and two restaurant owners.
I was super excited about the potential to get four restaurant listings, and one of the restaurant owners operated three locations. My Day was planned out the night before with an 11am face to face listing appointment in Jasper County in South Carolina.
After my 11am scheduled appointment, I was scheduled to meet the restaurant operator of three locations in Florence County, SC, at any time because he would be working that day. His restaurants were located in three different cities. My strategy was to visit all his locations before I met with him in Florence County.
Let’s see how this goes:
4:00 am – Wake up and put on a pot of coffee, and drink water. Review my Cash Scoreboard with my to-do list for the Day. Add any items that come to mind.
4:15 am- 4:30 am – Pack snacks, candy, and energy shots for the day trip. Kiss my wife good-bye, say a quick prayer, and I’m in my car on the way to Sumter County, SC.
4:30 am- 4:45 am- I drive my wife’s car on my long road trips to visit customers. As usual, when I take my wife’s car, her gas is empty, so before I can really start my road trip, I stop for gas. The 1st restaurant location is 290 miles away from my home.
7:45 am – 8:00am- First stop of the Day to refuel the gas, respond to customers’ emails, stretch, and grab some Bojangles for breakfast.
8:30 am- Arrive at 1st restaurant location. I take notes about the restaurant’s appearance related to street visibility, the shopping center’s condition, lease vacant spaces, and other tenants in a shopping center. The restaurant is not open, so I can only look thru the window.
8:45 am- Jump back in the car to make my way towards my 11am scheduled face-to-face meeting with a restaurant owner located 145 miles away.
10:45 am- I arrive early in the surrounding area to drive around to have a better feel for the location. I take notes on the surrounding competition, businesses, residential properties, and the appearance from the outside.
11:00 am – 12:00 pm- Meet with the single unit owner. They would like to sell to relocate outside of the state. I educate them on the current restaurant resale market, provide a restaurant price valuation, and review the lease.
12:15 pm- Respond to buyer inquiries from my car, finalize my notes from my meeting, and input location three in the Waze App. I’m headed to the 2nd restaurant of three owned by the restaurant operator in Florence County, located 165 miles away.
2:45 pm – I arrive at the restaurant, and instantly I’m impressed with the beautifully built restaurant with a drive-thru. I was impressed with the street visibility and design of the restaurant. It was a fantastic improvement from the seller’s first location in Sumter County.
3:00 pm- I take a couple pictures of the restaurant building, outdoor signage, patio space, and drive-thru window. Finalize my notes from my car and head towards the face-to-face meeting with Restaurant Owner 2; the location is 25 miles away.
3:30 pm- I arrive at destination number four. During my ride, I was thinking about the difference between the owner’s two locations. I thought about the Pros and Cons of both places. I was ready for my face-to-face meeting. By this point, I had driven 625 miles in the Day.
3:45 pm – I walk-in a restaurant, and instantly, I’m impressed with the restaurant’s layout, bar area, and stand-alone building. I ask for the owner, grab a menu and take a seat.
The management team lets me know he is not there. I sit down and look at the menu order food. My food arrives, and it’s delicious, but the owner has not arrived yet.
4:15 pm – I start to get nervous, and doubt starts to kick in. I made the cardinal sales professional mistake; I didn’t confirm the scheduled meeting the night before with the owner. I sent a text and get no response.
4:30 pm- Management team members come over and let me know the restaurant owner will not make the meeting.
4:45pm – Disappointed, I get back in my car and start my journey home, located 300 miles away.
5:15pm – The Owner calls to apologize for missing the scheduled meeting. We talk on the phone for about 30 minutes (I have Bluetooth). He agrees to send his Profit and Loss statements to me via email to provide him a restaurant valuation for all three of his restaurants.
9:15 pm- I finally arrive at home after driving over 900 miles. I was mentally tired, my body ached, and my stomach was empty. I was lucky because my wife had dinner ready.
I returned home with zero signed listing agreements. Most would think my trip was unsuccessful, but I feel different.
I was able to show my potential listing clients I will go the extra mile to provide exceptional customer service. I was trying to show Restaurant Owner 2 that I’m not a Broker that will just sit in an office and rarely visit clients at their restaurants,
EATS Restaurant Brokers commits to visiting potential clients within a 300-400 miles radius if needed to get a deal done. We can sell restaurants in Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Texas, Kentucky, Missouri, Louisiana, Virginia and Georgia.

Restaurant Business Brokers are more similar to a quarterback on a football team than most people think. Restaurant Brokers are the quarterbacks for the sale process. Quarterbacks are known to be some of the smartest people on the team. A team that has a great quarterback has a competitive edge over another group.
Restaurant Business Brokers are responsible for coordinating all the various aspects of the restaurant sale. Restaurant Sales can be more complicated than residential real estate sales or general business brokerage. Remarkably similar to a quarterback position being a specialized position, it takes Restaurant Brokers years to specialize in the minor details of Restaurant Brokerage.
Dominique Maddox, a Restaurant Broker and Founder of EATS Restaurant Brokers, says, “a Restaurant Broker and a Quarterback have to be leaders for the team.” To get a Restaurant listing to the closing table, it takes a team effort’. The more complex the deal gets, the more team members will be added.
Nobody wants the deal to get to the closing table more than the Restaurant Broker. A good Restaurant Business Broker should be able to call an audible if he or she notices the deal is falling apart”.
Facts about a Quarterback:
– Playing a Quarterback is the most demanding position on the field.
– Has to know all the responsibilities for every player on the offensive
– Has to understand how the defense is trying to stop them from scoring
– Has to be able to call audibles if play will fail
– Quarterbacks can be expensive; they usually are the highest-paid player on the team
Facts about a Restaurant Broker:
Specializing in selling restaurants is a tough business; over 60% of Restaurant Brokers will fail within the industry in the first two years.
– Has to know the role of every individual or professionals involved in the deal
– Experienced Restaurant brokers should understand items that could affect the deal from closing.
– Most deals require written amendments to get the deal closed; a Restaurant Broker needs to know when to call an audible to save a deal
– A good Restaurant Broker should contact the lawyers, accountants, landlords, lenders, buyer, seller, and closing attorneys throughout the sales process.
– Restaurant Brokers usually charge 10%-15% or a minimum commission of $10,000
EATS Restaurant Brokers understands the importance of running the offense to score a touchdown and get everyone paid at the closing table. Interested in selling your restaurant? Don’t just hire any Broker; hire a quarterback to get your restaurant sold.
