The Best time to Sell Your Restaurant

This is a frequently asked question by restaurant, bar and nightclub owners. The answer is that it really doesn’t matter what time of year you put your business on the market. If you have a good location and good operation that is appealing you will generate interest.

With the right broker, the best time could be anytime! An effective broker that maximizes the following marketing practices such as: regular newspaper advertising, mailings, fax campaigns, targeted telemarketing, Internet research, etc. you should be able to sell your business anytime of the year. An aggressive broker is busy all year long through tax season, holiday season, etc. if the broker is constantly marketing their inventory. It is true that there are lulls such as during the last two weeks of the year, the couple of weeks before income taxes are due etc. but by and large excellent brokers are busy all of the time.
