Hospitality – Restaurants and Hotels

Home· Industries Served· 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.

Mulleady’s Irish Pub
