To Whom it may concern:
Chuck recently worked with me on purchasing a restaurant/bar and I have to tell you it was a great experience. We were very fortunately to have Chuck in the mix. His experience and mild, friendly manner were just what we needed. He represented his clients (the sellers) who were a bit scattered and frustrating to deal with very well and was extremely helpful getting all of us to stay on track. I would recommend Chuck highly to anyone looking to buy or sell.

My experience with Chuck Machado was amazing. I am a bit of a tough gal, that does not trust, but I have to say that working with Chuck was one the best business decisions I have ever made. He made it happen! In the tough economy, he held stead fast, kept me involved, and made sure, to the closing that everything was complete.
I have since then, referred him to my brother, and Im sure he will be very satifisfied with his performance and follow- through as well. Thanks Chuck! I am ever so grateful for you.
I was extremely fortunate to have found these guys. Then I was even more fortunate to get the CEO Mel Jones personally. Although he is located in Scottsdale, three hous away, he has personally driven down here to a small town several times in pursuit of the perspective clients. He is extremely articulate and unrelenting in the representation of his clients. This guy definitly knows what he is doing and knows the business. There is a ton of stuff that goes on behind the scenes to close a deal and he navigates through them like a Captain of a ship in troubled waters. He never gives up. This is the secound broker that I have used and this is the ONLY one that has gotten me to the one yard line , so to speak. I am extremely pleased with him and his innovative approaches on behalf of both the buyer and the seller. The only mistake you can make is NOT selecting him to represent you.

I have been looking on sellingrestaurants.com for a while now and I see you come up on most of the Sacramento area listing so I figured your the guys I want to talk to. So I am trying to get an idea on what my restaurant is worth and possibly thinking about selling in the near future. So if you can please get back to me via email or call me on my cell phone 916.XXX.XXX that would be great. Thanks John
You know Keith, you are Johnny on the spot, you are truly an exceptional broker. I feel quite lucky to have you. I do not know any other broker I have ever dealt with that has been as proactive and knowledgeable and willing to help as yourself, so thanks a lot.
Your checklist for Monday is excellent and very complete. I was just wondering, do you think it would be prudent to simply set up the meeting with the ABC tomorrow, Monday, even if we do not have a verbal from the landlord. After all the worst that can happen is we make the appointment with ABC and we cancel presuming a slight chance that there may be an issue with the landlord. But I was thinking if we wait until Wednesday to even ask if there's an appointment with ABC those extra two days meaning Monday and Tuesday of this week particularly Monday we may have missed out on an appointment that if we would've called Monday we might have been able to get for the following week referring to Monday and Tuesday of the following week. I'll leave that up to your good judgment, but just intuitively it seems the quicker we can set up the meeting with ABC the better, if I am going to be able to see them either at the end of this week or the beginning of next. And if I'm missing something the worst that can happen is we simply cancel the meeting with the ABC and it costs nobody anything.

"Keith Simpson and SellingRestaurants.com were a pleasure to work with. As a first time buyer in the industry, I was unfamiliar with the ins and outs of the process. Keith was incredibly patient and walked me through every step of the process. It was all handled professionally and efficiently. I would definitely work with SellingRestaurants.com and Keith again in the future if I ever look to buy or sell a food related business."
Thanks again, Keith!
Before I forget, I just wanted you to know that Jason and I have been very pleased with our choice of brokers. You have been one of the most professional, reliable and trustworthy agents/brokers either of us has ever worked with. Without a doubt, you exceeded our expectations. We will highly recommended you to anyone in need of a broker in the future. Thanks again!!
I interviewed several sales organizations when I decided to sell my bar. In the final analysis, Mel Jones & SellingResturants was the only company with it all together. They have the best exposure and the most comprehensive system to ensure a sale and when the sales does happen, it goes down smoothly. The only company to use!

Thanks for your diligent efforts on helping us sell Blue Cue. Your tenacity was much needed and appreciated.
I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for handling the sale of my restaurant. Selling a restaurant is a complicated transaction and mine was certainly one of the more difficult ones with booby traps around every corner, but you navigated me through those mines to a successful close nevertheless. You always kept your focus and your cool never allowing the situation, no matter how dark the deal looked, to control your emotions. I now know why you and your company have the reputation as the best restaurant brokerage firm in the business. I truly couldn’t have brokered my restaurant without you.
I look forward to working with you in the future.

I just can't tell you how excited I am about buying Ernie's Interlude! I've owned it for two months and I have never been so happy! You took the time to find me a business that fits me like a glove. This is my dream business! In two months sales are up 20%. The employees are happier. I've dropped the pour costs from the mid-forty percent to mid-twenty percent range! SellingRestaurants was another dream come true. You handled my deal like a professional; but with kindness and caring. You pointed-out the strengths and weaknesses of the business and you were right-on. You held my hand through the closing process. Buying a business seemed so daunting to me. I never thought a brokerage company could be so good to work with. I look forward to buying my next bar through you very soon. Thanks again SellingRestaurants!

I was waiting for the transaction to be totally wrapped up before I write you and thank you for having delivered your part of our collective efforts to get consents and assignments from the various landlords. I certainly recognize that given the additional conditions added by Panda to the consents, they would have to conduct much of the direct negotiation. In any event, it does appear that we will get all nine stores sold even though there are still some loose ends to tie up.
...Thank you for having been a reliable and responsive service provider to Manchuwok and I also look forward to other opportunities to work with you.

"Using SellingRestaurants Brokers to help sell my restaurant was a very good business decision. They assisted in determining a competitive market sales price that got me the attention and offering bid that I wanted. They handled all of the legal transferring documentation with skill and commitment. I had no trouble communicating with them as they were always available when I needed. After I sold the store I opened another one and will not hesitate to involve them again when the time to sell is right. Thank you "Selling Restaurants"!"

"Family circumstances made it impossible for us to run our restaurants any longer. We were put in touch with Puffin So of Selling Restaurants.com and the rest is history. From deciding on a selling price to the final escrow papers, SellingRestaurants was knowledgeable, courteous, competent and helpful. She was very professional in navigating us through every aspect of the selling process. We would highly recommend her to our friends, and how can you have more confidence in a person than that?"

"I have used Paramount Restaurant Brokers, Inc. to handle two of my restaurant sale transactions. Both times they have managed to turn what seemed to be impossible deals into closed transactions where we got top-dollar for our restaurants. They have the skills to navigate through difficult situations with lenders, buyers, and landlords. They're smart, professional, well prepared and easy to work with. We'll use them again and again."

"I've used SellingRestaurants 4 times now; twice to purchase restaurants and twice to sell restaurants. Their business model is unique and has produced great results for me. Although they didn't represent me on the purchases, I always felt they had my interest at heart too. They take pride in making sure the deal goes smoothly and gets closed as quickly as possible. And on the sales side, they sold my restaurants in a matter of days. Their marketing and advertising strategy is like no other broker I've experienced. My restaurants got fast and wide exposure to countless buyers resulting in fast sales. I have 5 restaurants now, and I plan on continuing to use SellingRestaurants for all my brokerage needs and I also recommend using them. They're professional and smart!"

"To whom it Concerns:
I have been working with SellingRestaurants for about two years and made more money from them then all my businesses combined this year. When I first spoke with SellingRestaurants, they suggested a building in Southern California that I had no interest in since I live in Sacramento. They insisted I see it. When I finally flew down there, I was impressed but not convinced. SellingRestaurants got me demographical information as well as a great overall picture of the market and the potential for this site. After hearing his "sales pitch," I did my own research and found SellingRestaurants was absolutely honest in their assessment. I acquired the building and have made what most people would consider a fortune. About six months ago, SellingRestaurants again presented another opportunity whereby the end result was the property was valued at more than twice the purchase price. SellingRestaurants is not a money making machine, rather they are excellent at identifying opportunities where most brokers see challenges. Beyond the financial return, SellingRestaurants has provided me with something greater...TRUST! Whenever I have needed anything, SellingRestaurants is there to help. I have called perhaps 10 times or more for favors above and beyond the call of duty, even after a deal has closed. When SellingRestaurants says "If you need any thing, just call me" they mean it! SellingRestuarants has not let me down. SellingRestaurants is not pushy, they are honest, and an EXTREMELY hard working team. I rarely trust people and I'm proud to include them as part of my circle of friends."

Other brokers always try to close the deal and not care what the buyer needs and is looking for. Thank you for all your help. When we are ready to grow and purchase another business we will definitely go with you."

I have sold my Johnny Rockets restaurant, and since then I am looking for another fast food place. All the web sights are done very unprofessional, yours is very easy to navigate, nice pictures, which are very important, and in most cases if you agree to the confidentiality agreement, the address is available too.

I met with Mike and Dave Hunter this morning. While I do have a business partner who has a say in the decision making process, for my 2 cents, I was very impressed with how they represented your company. I felt Dave had a very thorough knowledge of this business and while he said that Mike was new and in training, I still got the impression that he was a very sharp guy and thorough in his preparation as well.
Too many times you'll only get feedback from people when they want to bitch about something. If we ultimately use you service and I feel we will, I want you to know that my comfort level would be high knowing that I had these guys on the project.

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.

Thank you Keith. We lucked out when we got you to broker the deal as you are doing a great job for everyone.
And let me complement you on your website. Fast, easy and comprehensive. No BS. Thank you most for the online NDA. I will return to your site as you folks seem to be the only brokers that don't waste my time.

Rob, you all did a fantastic job on your end. I've already told people in my life that we've listed, met and really liked you personally, which makes this sort of arrangement pleasant. You had a great eye with the camera and I'm extremely pleased.
Hoping for the best, we're off to a great start. Let's just pray for a bidding war!!
