I am not sure what the average is but I personally would never go over 10%. After that you are working too hard for your money to give to somebody else. Rmember the old saying, "Location, Location, Location"? Well it is really, "Location, Location, Location, as long as I have a great lease!!!!!"
I see way too many restaurants where the rent is 10k a month and the owner is making 25k a year. It just isn't worth it.
Also be wary of property taxes and cam (and cam overun, if applicable.)
right now i run at about 5% and pay a share of property taxes and cam overrun-- about 1200 per year total for both.
Good Luck.
