I can't say enough good things about Larry Braden at SellingRestaurants and the help he was in selling our restaurant. The buyer proved to be very difficult, as it was his first purchase. Larry professional and calmly navigated everyone through a number of issues to closing.
He was professional throughout the process and I would highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a restaurant.
