Here’s an opportunity that doesn’t come along everyday: Alex Brounstein, owner and founder of Grindhouse Killer Burgers, announced late yesterday that he wants to sell the original location at Sweet Auburn Curb Market on Edgewood Avenue.

“Part of our awesome success since we started in 2009 at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market is the fact that we are owner-operated,” says Brounstein. “Our downtown hit led us to open our second wildly popular restaurant on Piedmont earlier this year, and I simply do not have the time to continue to manage the downtown location. For that reason, I am looking to sell the business to a like-minded individual who is passionate about food and delivering a quality product, understands the exciting potential of the Sweet Auburn Curb Market – and loves burgers!”

“Buying Grindhouse Killer Burgers lunch-only counter at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market is an amazing opportunity for someone who has always dreamed of owning and running his or her own restaurant, but is not interested in working late nights and grueling hours, or risking the potential failure of a new concept,” says Brounstein. “I am looking to train and set that person up for long-term success and build a lasting relationship.”

Brounstein is offering owner financing in order to find the right buyer who may not have the up-front capital to open his own restaurant.  The sale of this business would include the right to continue to operate Grindhouse Killer Burgers at the Market, use of all logos and recipes, and the ongoing training and support that is typically provided to franchisors.
