I am a Chef with 10 years of experience. I have traveled and worked outside of the U.S. for the past two years. I am interested in purchasing an existing restaurant/market. Where do I start? I have not been able to find much information about obtaining business loans, requirements, etc.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have looked in to franchises in the past. Most require more capital then I am able to come up with. I want to start small, prove that I can be successful, and expand from that point. I just need a solid starting point. Most importantly, I am trying to do all of this on a Chefs salary. Going to a bank for a loan, I can show the experience, but I am not sure I have enough credit to secure a loan. Would it help me to search for an owner financed property?

Hello Paul, Good luck with your search, this is a good place to start. I am a firm believer in franchises, since I started or bought several businesses in my life. If you can finagle a bunch of starting capital you have a better change of getting in business and when you want out a better chance of selling out.
Just wanted to make sure you didn't overlook all the successful restaurants out there. Good Luck, Jon.
