Buy a Restaurant

Are you looking to buy a restaurant for sale in Nashville, TN or buy bars for sale in Nashville, TN? Our brokers are experienced commercial real estate brokers and restaurant business brokers. Let us assist you in finding the right restaurant business and location at no cost to you.


There are 2 types of Restaurant Sales:
1) Buying an Asset Sale.  This type of sale is a great way to get up and running in the restaurant business without paying top dollar for a build out of the space, new equipment, furniture, building standards approvals, and health department approvals. The previous owner has absorbed many of the start-up costs associated with starting a restaurant business.

2) Buying a Turnkey Operation.  This type of sale typically costs more than an asset sale because you are buying for the assets as well as the restaurant business’s established revenue stream and customer base.

Both options are excellent ways to get into the business.

What we require of our buyers:

We require the completion of non-disclosure agreements (Confidentiality Agreement) for all of our confidential listings.  Restaurant businesses may suffer if word leaks out to the employees that the restaurant is for sale. The buyer must agree to keep ALL confidential listings private or they could suffer legal penalties.      

We also require our buyers to complete a personal net worth statement.  Not having a personal net worth statement before placing an offer, will delay if not ruin an opportunity to buy a business.  For the sake of both parties involved, net worth must be discussed in the early stages of looking for property.

What to expect when working with National Restaurant Properties:

Your time is valuable and so is ours. If you are prepared to buy at this time, we ask that you complete the online form on this page and one of our brokers will contact you. If you are not prepared to buy at this time and only want to browse our  listings, please view them

We act on behalf of sellers, but we treat all buyers honestly and fairly and disclose all material facts that we know about available businesses.  Our brokers help qualified buyers with all the details involved in obtaining financing, including small business loans and seller financing, and educate them in our business buying system. We provide the financial records submitted to our company by the seller. However, be aware that business owners prepare financial records to reduce taxable income. The buyer is responsible for investigating reported sales and expenses prior to making an offer for a business.

As brokers, we cannot advise you on legal or accounting matters but we will guide you through the transaction and provide information about how to engage other professionals who can assist you. For example, we recommend that our clients work with attorneys regarding new property leases. We have a network of experienced attorneys we have worked with and can recommend should you need assistance.

We help buyers structure detailed checklists to guide them through the process of buying a restaurant business in Nashville, TN or to buy bars for sale in Nashville, TN.  Fill out the form on this page and get started with one of our National Restaurant Properties Nashville experts.
