MegaBite Restaurant Brokers LLC offers, for your ownership consideration, a spotless, full-service family style restaurant business providing homemade country style breakfast and lunch to customers in the Irving-Las Colinas-Dallas area. Convenient to major highways, the restaurant is famous for great food, quick service and friendly atmosphere. The restaurant features fresh homemade recipes including traditional breakfast fare, chicken fried steak and made from scratch desserts all prepared and served in a spacious, spotless open concept kitchen, dining area plus a large private room. You don’t have to drive miles into the sticks searching for some rumored-to-be “best ever” family style cooking; you will find it right here!
While the owner has created an amazing location and concept, they lack the restaurant industry specific experience to efficiently operate the business. Dissatisfied with an unacceptable situation at their “usual” diner, this successful entrepreneur started the restaurant WITH NO PRIOR FOOD SERVICE EXPERIENCE. They created a menu including daily specials, home cooking as well as healthy meals. They quickly developed a loyal clientele made up of local customers.
As the restaurant’s name and reputation spread, they have continued to win annual awards for their food and customer experience. The founder has pretty much let the staff run the business. The owner has never negotiated, or comparison shopped vendor prices for food, supplies, etc, or managed labor costs. The founder does not manage or operate the business; they simply wanted a great place to eat and, frankly, as long as it did not lose money, they left the business alone.
The owner does NOT work directly in the business and feels that a major advantage over competitors is the seniority and experience of their employees. The server and kitchen team are professional, well-experienced and a major asset to the company. They will benefit from direction and cost management oversight. The customers are happy with the service and food. The owner feels that an industry-knowledgeable, hard-working owner will drastically improve the sales and profits by hands-on owner-operation, managing food and labor costs, adding dinner hours, increasing prices, adding catering and to-go sales. NOTE: CASH FLOW IS BASED ON SAVVY, EXPERIENCED NEW OWNER OPERATING THE BUSINESS TO REDUCE FOOD AND LABOR COSTS.
The asking price for the assets of the business is $450,000 ALL CASH OR $550,000 with $350,000 down with $200,000 seller financing to a purchaser qualified and approved by the Seller. SELLER PREFERS ALL-CASH SALE. The assets include inventory at cost of $14,000 and FFE (Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment) valued at $100,000.
