2. Find A Realistic Value of the Restaurant, Bar or Business You Want to Buy


Once you find a restaurant, bar or business to buy that suits your dreams, it’s necessary to come up with a realistic value.  There are two types of sales, the first is an asset sale or a distressed sale (anywhere from $20,000 -$75,000) basically for the equipment, lease anything of value.  The second is a profitable business for sale, which must be formulated through cash flow.  A profitable business for sale can go anywhere from 1 to 3 multiples of the net.  For example, if a business nets $ 100,000 a year and the multiple is 2 the value of the business is $200,000.  There are also other variables that must be added to the equation, such as the lease, location, how much equipment, name, concept and good will are just a few things that should be factored into the sale. Georgia Restaurant Brokers will be there to help with the details.
