BVR Publishes New Guide to Restaurant Valuation and Fills Large Gap in Body of Knowledge

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - March 12, 2010) -  Any stakeholder in the volatile restaurant industry will benefit from BVR's Guide to Restaurant Valuation, a new publication by industry veteran Ed Moran. Given the previous dearth of in-depth analysis on the unique aspects of restaurant valuation, this guide is being heralded as a timely, one-of-a-kind resource that is already securing its place as the de facto source in this area.

"Early signals from the National Restaurant Association (NRA) indicate that the industry is starting to recover; this is good news for restaurant owners, appraisers, brokers and financiers," said Moran. "Franchisees, franchisors and independent restaurant owners who held on through the tough economic times may be looking to sell as the economy improves. It's a good time to get ready for a new wave of these transactions and engagements."

In an engaging and conversational tone, Moran shows how to apply the NRA's broad range of tools as well as traditional valuation methods, site inspections, management interviews, checklists, and more to generate comprehensive, credible restaurant valuations. "Mr. Moran has hit a home-run for the profession and BVR is proud to be his publisher," observes Lucretia Lyons, President of BVR. "We always get a steady stream of inquiries that specifically relate to restaurant valuation; as soon as we announced the upcoming title we had such of flood of calls we doubled the print run. This book is sure to be a standard-setting new publication."
