Hospitality – Restaurants and Hotels
Hospitality businesses are the most frequent form of entrepreneurship in the United States. This entrepreneurship can take the form of an espresso stand, concession booth, café, franchised business, pizzeria, diner, ethnic restaurant, fine dining establishment, pub, tavern, nightclub, bed & breakfast, or hotel. Our past transactions in this market niche have included businesses in all the above identified categories and many variations not listed. We have sold businesses with real estate included in the transaction and ones where a lease needs to be negotiated or an assignment facilitated. We have sold restaurants in small communities and large metropolitan areas and all places in between.
This legacy of completed transactions was established by IBA because our professionals have the transactional experience and market knowledge required to properly evaluate, market, and negotiate transactions in this foundation segment of the American economy.
The following are some specific examples of hospitality industry transactions completed by IBA:
Mulleady’s Irish Pub
House on the Hill Hotel
Taco Del Mar
The Cook’s Shop
Jaeger’s Sports Pub
Earl’s on the Ave
Casa de Blanca
Big Apple Bagels
IBA has also facilitated a spectrum of transactions involving manufacturing, distribution, and service companies serving the hospitality industry.
IBA has a reputation built over multiple decades in the Pacific Northwest for being a collaborative professional advisor in the hospitality industry. One organization where IBA serves as a resource and contributing member is the Washington Hospitality Association. The team of professionals at IBA that facilitate transactions in the hospitality industry welcome the opportunity to meet and talk with entrepreneurs seeking information about the process associated with selling or buying a privately held company or family business.
