Craig Johnson, CBI, CBB

Broker/Owner – Southern California

I have been blessed with success with several million dollars in transactional sales in restaurants and real estate involving multiple concepts and cuisines. I have the pleasure of serving all of Southern California as a Certified Restaurant Business Broker and Licensed Real Estate Agent specializing in the confidential sales of those restaurants and related real estate. Over 25 years of restaurant industry experience in front of the house, sales training, marketing, promotions, and management. This combined with commercial real estate brokerage success in tenant representation, landlord representation, and investment sales with Iliff-Thorn/Colliers and Marcus & Millichap and current and former business ownership, helps me to give my clients a well-rounded evaluation of the way to achieve their particular business disposition goals. I have active memberships in both the IBBA (International Business Brokers Association) and CABB (California Association of Business Brokers).

I hold the CBI designation awarded by the International Business Brokers Association. The Certified Business Intermediary (CBI) is a prestigious designation exclusive to the IBBA that identifies an experienced and dedicated business broker. It is awarded to intermediaries who have proven professional excellence through verified education as well as exemplary commitment to our industry. I also hold the Certified Business Broker (CBB) top designation awarded by the California Association of Business Brokers. These highly sought-after certifications are held by a small percentage of the brokerage community.

Restaurant business owners please reach out anytime for a private complimentary consultation. We look forward to being of service.
