John Jordan, restaurant broker and franchise partner at We Sell Restaurants, had this to say of the transaction. "The Vines was established as a labor of love by the owners. It was very important to them that the person taking over have the same vision and passion for the industry. Through confidential and focused marketing, We Sell Restaurants was able to match an ideal buyer with the seller to make this happen."
