Hopkins Appraisal Services is the nation’s leader in multi-unit retail valuation. We specialize in the appraisal of restaurants and retail petroleum facilities (convenience stores, service stations, truck stops, car washes, etc.). We are experienced with all elements of value – real estate, equipment and business intangible. Hopkins has 45± years of experience in our specialty and offers complete national coverage from multiple offices. Our clients include real estate lenders and enterprise lenders, as well as franchisees and operators.  Large portfolio assignments are a routine part of our workflow.  Hopkins has appraised over 100,000 convenience stores and restaurants.



We built our business on customer service. We know our clients require accurate appraisals, delivered on time, and at a fair price.



Each valuation problem is unique. Within the strict ethics and standards of the profession, we tailor valuation procedures and reporting options to fit the needs of the assignment.



We only operate in two closely related markets: restaurants and convenience stores. We’ve been doing it for more than 30 years.


We can serve as your valuation expert for many purposes. For lending, Hopkins is an approved appraiser at all of the franchise specialists and national banks, as well as many, many community banks.
