How to overcome some of the common hurdles with buying a café or buying a restaurant:
Financials, and what to do when there aren’t any:
No doubt that if you are buying in this market then you are somewhat familiar with its fast-paced nature. As a by-product of this, it is true that up-to-date and accurate financial records are often not available or incomplete in the hospitality industry.
Having incomplete or missing financials in any industry makes it difficult to make a purchasing decision, but in the hospitality industry, the good news is that there are ways around this. Incomplete financials are often the biggest hurdle to overcome,
but it’s not impossible, and certainly not worth missing a good deal over.
Three ways to conduct Due Diligence when there is missing financial information:
A well loved business owner: what if everyone leaves with them?
Another common concern when buying a restaurant for sale or café for sale is that if the current vendor is well known, clients and staff will leave when the business owner leaves. This concern, though fair, can be very easily overcome through requesting a good handover period designed to alleviate this concern.
If you are unfamiliar with this concept, the ‘handover’ is the period of time (usually several weeks for restaurants and cafes) after the exchange of contracts where the previous owner stays in the business for training and to introduce you to existing customers, the staff, and the operation of the business. This way, by the time the handover period ends, you’ll be the well-loved business owner.
(Hot Tip: The handover period should be written into the contract of sale and don’t expect the previous owner to work for free. If you’re concerned with paying them, consider that they are easily the most qualified person who works there, and a few weeks extra pay for them may be one of the most worthwhile investments you’ll make in purchasing your business)
