Marcus & Millichap Hit a ‘Home Run’ Sale-Leaseback Transaction of a Golden Corral Restaurant For $6.1M Near The Battery Atlanta
“Despite the Covid-19 pandemic and Omnicron variant, buffets aren't going anywhere! We learned this directly from the buyer who visited the site several times during their inspection period and said that each time they visited, there was a line out of the door and a 45-minute wait to be seated,” said Leeor Ben-Moshe. “That information, paired with the actual sales figures of the restaurant, concluded that this was a sound, cash flowing, and highly desired operation.”
Roee Ben-Moshe and Leeor Ben-Moshe, investment specialists in the Marcus & Millichap Miami office, had the exclusive listing to market the property on behalf of the seller, the largest Golden Corral Franchisee in the system.
“Throughout the last decade, restaurant franchisees across the United States regularly reach out to us to consult about their real estate holdings. We are honored to represent some of the largest operators in the country – with this portfolio we have been fortunate to assist the largest Golden Corral Franchisee”, added Roee Ben-Moshe, a first vice president of investments.
