Diners for Sale

BizQuest can fill your plate with the best selection of diners for sale!

Some industries will always be somewhat recession-proof, in large part due to human behavior. Restaurants fall into this category. People not only need to eat, but they love eating out. And what better way to combine the two than in one of America’s roadside, hole-in-the-wall, specialty diners? There are so many great diners for sale today, a potential entrepreneur can easily combine a lifelong dream of running a restaurant with the nostalgia that comes from buying a roadside diner.

There are over 155,000 quick-service restaurants in America, many of which are franchises. In 2013, the restaurant industry in the U.S made almost $660 billion in food and drink sales. In today’s technological age, 90% of customers research online the restaurant they intend to visit before arriving there. This can be a real boon for those considering the purchase of existing small eateries like diners. Almost 200 million people in America dined in a sit-down restaurant in the spring of 2013 alone. Many Americans (roughly 83%) frequent quick-service sit-down restaurants, such as diners, on a weekly basis.

Franchise businesses like Mel’s Diner or Black Bear Diner are good modern options, but mom-and-pop diners shouldn’t be ignored. Many of the good vintage diners for sale will serve familiar comfort food, have a string of loyal customers, and may include most of the inventory and furnishings needed to ensure your business hits as few speed bumps as possible. If you've been wondering how to start a diner, take the easier approach and browse BizQuest's website now to find a great diner to buy!

BizQuest has more Diner for sale listings than any other source. Whether you are looking to buy a Diner for sale or sell your Diner, BizQuest is the Internet's leading Diner for sale marketplace.
