Hi your question is? how is a restaurant valued,

1. what is the turover and the profit. long is the lease does it have an option.

3. what is the rent,

of course there are professional questions, do you understand turnover and profit, do you have capacity to run the restaurant, if the answer is yes, and the lease is at least 5 years plus option, the value is two years profit, if the lease is less then five years, the restaurant is worth less and so on.
