Business Broker for Restaurants and Food-Related Businesses

Brokers for Restaurant and Food-Related Businesses in MA, CT, RI, NH

Whether you’re an owner interested in selling or a potential buyer, we have the knowledge and proven track record to help you achieve your goal. Our reputation is unmatched for marketing and brokering the sale of restaurants and other food-related businesses including food distributors, specialty food delivery businesses and grocery stores.

Affordable family restaurants and fast casual dining businesses are increasingly attractive businesses. As business brokers, we realize that there is a great opportunity for strategic buyers and individual buyers to acquire select restaurants that are thriving and well-positioned for continued growth after the pandemic. An attractive segment of restaurants includes fast casual restaurants including ‘grab & go’, given their emphasis on affordability, predictability and convenience. Additionally, their occupancy costs are low, and their labor costs are lower than other restaurant segments.

Affordable family restaurants are another attractive segment in the restaurant market, including those which offer dine-in and takeout options to serve busy families. The ability to offer independent, reliable delivery without losing margin to third party providers improves their margin and marketability.

Restaurants with scalable and consistent capabilities for convenience (including online menus, a responsive website, efficient takeout processes and reliable delivery service) are also attractive businesses for both strategic buyers and individual buyers.

Additionally, food-related businesses present great recession-proof opportunities for buyers, given the necessity of food for our survival and well-being. While somewhat affected by increasing costs, food-related businesses throughout the span of the supply chain are showing promise through innovation and technology. We continue to see growth in the sector as more businesses emerge focused on convenience and home delivery from basic daily needs like groceries to specialty gifts and prepared meals. BayState Business Brokers has the expertise and knowledge to help you successfully market such a business or assist you in identifying the right food-related business to acquire.
