Why Restaurant Sales are Rising

by admin

Demand for Specialists Skyrockets as Restaurants Change Hands

There are more than one million restaurants in America and at any given time, 20% are on the market. That trend is rising for several important reasons.


We Sell Restaurants® is successfully selling the nation’s restaurants and experiencing explosive growth. Why? Franchise resales are growing as legacy brand owner’s trade for newer concepts and fresher brands. Baby boomers are approaching their retirement window and seeking expert advice as they sell their profitable businesses to finance a new lifestyle. Both reasons create more opportunity for restaurant brokers.

The maturity of the country’s franchise industry is driving higher franchise resale counts due to both the age of concepts and the lifecycle of the brands. Franchisees up for renewal look to sell rather than restart a new 10 year agreement which may require upgrades and reinvestment. This creates a need for restaurant brokerage services.


Franchisors need trusted resources for their transfers and resales. Their focus is on new franchise sales, not existing stores so they seek the services of a professional restaurant broker, especially franchise brands like We Sell Restaurants that understand the industry needs.

TV has Given the Restaurant Business a Starring Role. Nearly 100 Million households watching Food Network plus cable and network programming powering demand for “all things foodie” leads to new units and increased demand for restaurant brokers.

Restaurant Growth Continues to Outpace Other Industries. Restaurant industry sales will grow to an estimated $782.7 billion in 2016 according to the National Restaurant Association. That equates to 4% of the U.S. gross domestic product. Each time the industry expands, roughly one in five stores end up on the market. That creates opportunity for We Sell Restaurants and the restaurant brokerage franchise.

Other reasons our model is growing.
