How Important is Experience in the Field when getting a Small Biz Loan for An Existing Business Purchase

I am 22, starting to save up now and plan ahead. I will have around 100K saved up when I'm 25, and plan to use that to get a 300-400k Loan to buy a sports bar/restaurant etc....I have general business experience running my own cell phone stores and have excellent credit (750+)...how important will experience in the field be...will I get denied the loan just because I've never worked in a restaurant before? I plan to use the next 3 years running my cell phone store and learning everything there is to learn about the restaurant business. ..Also I have a B.A in Finance from the University of Georgia...
