Is it time to regroup and start fresh with insight into your next menu options for fall? Or do you need to take a look at liquidation?  If you are struggling to make cash flow you may want to examine carefully your next go forward options before the doors to your restaurant must close, you have come to the right place. Reasons for high turnover in existing restaurants in any given city are as varied as the types of food they serve. What defines success is truly subjective. Sudden death of owners, poor management, terrible locations, serving food that doesn't taste good, and not serving what the people are looking for are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to dealing with the reality of keeping your doors open and staying profitable at the same time. But even if you have to close, restaurant equipment liquidation may be the first option you must consider.

Let's talk Restaurant Equipment Liquidation for a moment. By definition the term liquidation is:

Liquidation in finance and economics is the process of bringing a business to an end and distributing its assets to claimants. It is an event that usually occurs when a company is insolvent, meaning it cannot pay its obligations when they are due."
