has at its helm Dick Campbell, a leader who is particularly suited to assisting both buyers and
sellers in the bar and restaurant business.
Accumulating over 40 years in the bar and restaurant business, he has 25 years of executive

best possible deals for buyers and sellers alike.
Licensed as a broker in both the Midwest and Southeast, Mr. Campbell is active in a number of
markets, and can facilitate the best possible deals for you and your company. In addition, all of
National Hospitality Brokers agents are licensed in their respective states, putting NHB clients in
touch with a nearly-limitless number of possible buyers and sellers.
Experience and Focus on the industry are key to our success. All of our Brokers and Agents
have restaurant or hospitality experience, either as owners, management, or at the executive
level. Many of our staff have financial backgrounds as well. This combined experience within
the industry gives us a keen understanding of the businesses that we sell. Our agents are able
to evaluate businesses based on analysis and experience within the industry to market at a
price that is not only reasonable and fair to both seller and buyer, but also avoiding the frustrating
inability to finance an overpriced business.
We are integrity. Everything we do is within strict confidential guidelines. We are able to represent
either buyer or seller, offering our experience and expertise to facilitate either a sale or a
purchase. We understand and address the needs and concerns of both buyers and sellers.
Satisfying the needs of our buyer and seller clients is our highest priority. We want to ensure
that our seller’s receive a fair and equitable price for their business so that they can walk away
knowing that their best interest has been served. We at the same time want to make sure that
our buyer clients are making a sound purchase, and that they start off their business in a position
to be able to achieve success.
NOTE: Our fees are always paid by the Sellers we represent. Buyers never pay fees with National Hospitality Brokers.
Thinking of buying a restaurant? The right restaurant broker can make all the difference in
finding the right restaurant for you at the best possible price.
Owning your own restaurant is a very wise choice. As a restaurant owner, you are your own boss.
You create your own financial independence. And you can take advantage of tax write-offs and
Maybe you’ve considered starting your own restaurant from scratch. While starting a new
restaurant can offer the same rewards as buying an existing restaurant, starting a restaurant is
much riskier. According to government statistics, 80% of all new restaurants fail within the first
three years. Would you bet on those odds? Why take that kind of risk with your money when
you can buy an existing successful restaurant and reap the benefits?
By buying an existing restaurant, not only can you profit from an existing customer base,
experienced employees, and an established name and customer following. You can also enjoy a
proven and immediate cash flow and working capital that will keep your restaurant running. But
how do you find the right restaurant? We can help you find the perfect restaurant for your needs
Here’s what we can do for you:
1. Educate you in the process of buying a restaurant: Buying a restaurant requires a
significant investment of time and energy. You don’t have to do it alone. We will educate you as
we lead you step-by-step through the process of researching and buying a restaurant, working
with you every step of the way.
2. Determine the type of restaurants that fits your needs, interests, and lifestyle: We are experts
in matching buyers with restaurants. Buying a restaurant is not just as simple as determining the
amount of income you need. The restaurant must fit your needs, interests and lifestyle. We will sit
down with you and analyze your resources, abilities, and interests to determine the restaurants
that will suit you best and present these restaurants to you.
3. Find you the right restaurant: If you are qualified, we will find the right restaurant for you.
Using our worldwide database of restaurants for sale, our network of brokers, and our local
connections we will find a restaurant that fits your needs, interests, and lifestyle.
4. Help you see the value and potential of the restaurant: For tax purposes, tax returns of a
privately-owned restaurant are usually prepared to show as little income as possible. We are
experienced in reconstructing financial statements to provide your accountant with a more
realistic view of the restaurant. As an additional benefit, we can draw upon our experiences with
other restaurants and act as consultants to point out what others in the industry have done to
improve their profitability.
5. Negotiate and structure a successful purchase: There are many ways to structure a deal. It’s
not just a discussion of price, interest rate, and number of years to pay. There are many
accounting and tax-related issues that have to be considered. We have the expertise and
experience to structure the deal so that it is right for
