Restaurants for Sale
Share |

Nowadays Restaurants for sale is one of the most important markets for the real estate agents. Every restaurant that is being sold has a vast number of unique characteristics. They are the restaurant’s location, type and cuisine. Due to these characteristics no single restaurant can appeal to 100% of population. The owner has to pick a target group of the customers and see whether the target group is present in the local community. Thus the specific features of the restaurants have to be considered only in relation to the local population and never in isolation.

One has to understand that an Italian restaurant would be more profitable in the area where Italian population is dense. Restaurants with Italian cuisine are more likely to be successful in Quebec, where the percentage of Italian minority is higher than in other provinces. Similarly restaurants which offer food native to the Slavic nationalities might be successful in Alberta, because the proportion of immigrants from Eastern European countries and Russia is relatively high there. The same thing can be said about Indian restaurants in Great Toronto Area (GTA) and Chinese restaurants in British Columbia. However, these are general estimates. One has to study local as well as national trends.

By and large, to ensure that the restaurant is successful, one ought to know as much as possible about the local market. Restaurants are not only places where one can find quality ethnic food and try something new, but also a perfect break from cooking and washing up at home. As the demand for tasty and nutritious meals outside one’s home increases, new opportunities arise on the food-service market.

More and more singles, working parents and elderly people are willing to dine out. Despite this common desire, each of these groups has their specific demands as well. When considering buying a restaurant, it is important to understand that family-oriented restaurant in less likely to prosper in the business centre of the city. It has to be located in a quieter neighbourhood, where families live and like to stroll. Restaurants which are themed for kids and have a name that would be easy for kids to remember are likely to be profitable here as well.

Similar considerations have to me made about the socio-economic status of people who live in one particular area. It is logical to assume that a Michelin star French restaurant will prosper in the higher income areas, but not in the poorer areas of the city. In sum, when buying an established business, a buyer has to think about specific characteristics of the restaurant in relation to the characteristics of the local population:

                     • Type of cuisine offered
                     • Type of restaurant (fast-food, buffet, pizzeria etc.)
                     • Location
                     • Prices - It's all about food in Canada!

Spring clean your health regime by treating yourself to wholesome lunch options and an active new lifestyle to get yourself back on track for the summer months. Here are three ways to get you started.
1. Re–introduce activity: After months of using the “it's cold out” excuse for not getting your 45 minutes a day, it is time to get back into the swing of things. Using your lunch break in the middle of the day to enjoy a brisk walk is a great way to get moving again.


Enhance your health with freshly grown herbs
(NC)—Did you know that one tablespoon of fresh oregano contains the same amount of antioxidants as a medium sized apple?
We know that antioxidants in our bodies are essential to good health. Many fruits and vegetables provide them, but research shows that fresh oregano is at the top of the list in antioxidant activity. Adding fresh herbs to your diet is an easy way to include significant amounts of antioxidants and increase the health value of a meal without adding extra calories–and you can easily grow them right in your own backyard garden or in containers on your patio or balcony.


Pare down your portions to trim down your waistline
(NC)—We live in a world where “mega, super and grande” sizes have become the norm. Many people use these plus–sized portions to validate their binge–eating habits. Some use over–consumption as a way to comfort emotional distress, others take the “see food” diet approach and always finish what's on their plate.
Here are a few tips I like to follow to ensure I am eating the proper portions.
