Popular Chef Makes Transition to Focus on Food

Sells his restaurant to facilitate his move.

Challenge:

Commercial lease rates for many beach cities have doubled in just three to six years. Food costs and labor rates have also been rising at a fast pace making it increasingly more difficult for restaurants to operate successfully. This can certainly take some of the fun out of being a chef owner. One popular local chef with a self-named restaurant asked for support making the move to an adjacent city with significantly lower occupancy costs where he could team up with a trusted partner.

Success:

We helped the chef sell his business so that he could form a partnership where he could focus on his primary passion of preparing great food and not having to worry about managing the business.
