Chicago, IL – Anticipating an influx of restaurant product to hit the market in 2017, the SVN Restaurant Resource Group has tapped four new advisors to work within the specialty practice. This represents a two-fold increase in personnel over the last calendar year.
“We are very excited about the depth of our bench and the expanded diversity of our backgrounds.” states founding team member Marcus Sullivan. “We all know the restaurant business, obviously, but now can tap Advisors with particular expertise that best correlate with specific, niche assignments.”
