BUY A BUSINESS
The time has never been better to buy a business. Baby boomers are exiting and the opportunities are available. Get into a new industry or strategically grow your existing business by investing in a business that will help you reach your goals.
Purchasing an established business is often a more sensible alternative that starting a business from scratch.
An existing business is likely to include many of these benefits: brand / name recognition, team of employees, customer base, revenue stream, vendors and partners in place, the fixtures, furniture and equipment needed to operate the business and, last but not least, a proven track record of profitability when seeking financing.

The Buy a Business Process
Together, we can discuss your business goals, determine your buying criteria, and if you’re a first-time buyer, explore the possibilities, opportunities and challenges of owning your own business. I make the process of helping you buy a business as simple and safe as possible.
As a broker with Benchmark Business Group LLC, I have the privilege to work with a skilled and knowledgeable team that has managed the closings on hundreds of business acquisitions. Below are business listings we have listed for sale throughout the United States.
Available Business Listings
Become a Registered Buyer
If you’re interested in buying a business you should consider becoming a Registered Buyer. We take confidentiality very seriously when selling a business and as a Registered Buyer, your information is held confidential until such time you are interested in pursuing one of our business listings.
Becoming a registered buyer helps ensure that our sellers are comfortable sharing sensitive information with buyers who have qualified to purchase their business. Your Registered Buyer information also helps our business brokers match you to new business opportunities as they become available.
If you’re ready to start the process, begin by filling out the form.
No Fees Are Charged to the Buyer on the Sale Transaction
When looking at businesses listed with us, the seller has already agreed to pay any commissions or fees associated with the sale. There are no fees charged to the buyer under those circumstances. That said, it is possible to engage us on a fee basis to locate businesses for you to buy that have not been listed with us. Even then, an interested seller will often agree to a limited listing and payment of the fee. The best place to start is to become a Registered Buyer and to look at our current businesses for sale.
