SOLD! River City Bistro

After creating and operating River City Bistro for nearly a decade, owners Susan and Ron Tucker decided it was time to hand off the restaurant they had nurtured from its birth. But not just any new owner could care for and maintain this New York-style restaurant that had won multiple “Best of the Best” awards year after year, much in part due to the menu created and executed by head chef and Susan’s son, Jason. After exploring their options, they chose CBI Team Fort Smith-River Valley to mediate the sale, and the process of finding the right buyer began.

Enter Bruce and Michelle Spinas, local restaurant owners with a combined forty years of experience, and frequent patrons of River City Bistro; they were immediately interested when the restaurant became available. Between their proven restaurant success and their love for the deli-style food at River City Bistro, the decision to make an offer was a no-brainer.

Susan and Ron were delighted that Bruce and Michelle were interested in buying the business they had worked so hard to build over the years, and they trusted CBI Team Fort Smith-River Valley business intermediary Isaac Davis to handle the sale.

Davis walked through the emotional selling process with the Tuckers from their first meeting to the last signature at closing and helped both the sellers and buyers navigate the intricate details of a business transition.
