    If given the chance, would you buy your favorite restaurant?

    If the owner of your favorite restaurant or cafe offered to sell you their business, would you buy it?

    Assuming I had the money, or could get a loan to do it, I definitely would. I am a business owner, and while I've never seriously considered running a restaurant, if the right opportunity came, then I'd do it. Restaurants are competitive and require a lot of work. If I could successfully run a restaurant, I know I could succeed in any business I wanted.

    If a restaurant is one’s favorite it simply reflects individual preference of a particular type of restaurant.  I would certainly not buy with intent of running it because it requires a very unique skill set to run a successful restaurant.

    The decision to buy a restaurant will depend on many factors such as long term profitability, demand and competition in that area.  I would also like to ensure that current cook, management and service staff continue to work under new ownership with same level of performance.

    In nutshell, liking a restaurant is one thing where as decision of owning or running one should not be taken just because it is a your favorite.
