What are your thoughts on the likelyhood of being able to attract investors and/or obtaining a business loan for buying established restaurants in the state of the current economy? The plus side of the current economy is that it is a buyers market. I am currently reviewing three different restaurant businesses that are for sale, a fine dining, a seafood and casual dining. all currently gross $1M+ and are well known establishments. The casual restaurant the current owner is willing to carry back all of the financing with $100K down payment. The down payment I am looking to obtain possibly through an Angel Investor. The fine dining and casual are basically selling for land and building value, the seafood restaurant is a leased property with a 22 year lease. Sorry strayed away from the original question to give you some background.
