Absentee Businesses for Sale

Search BizQuest for the largest listing of absentee businesses for sale.

An absentee business is a great choice for the entrepreneur who wants to earn additional income without investing much time. The absentee business model is especially attractive because it allows people to acquire a business while continuing to work their own jobs. This removes some of the risk involved with starting a business because owners don't have to go through a start-up period without personal income. Some people want to invest with the intention that the absentee business will one day be their sole income, while others invest to have a second source of income. Retirees and people who travel often are also a great fit for an absentee business. Some of the most common absentee businesses are car washes, laundromats and gas stations. While an absentee business owner will need to hire trustworthy employees to handle day-to-day operations, the owner can still expect to take care of certain tasks like bookkeeping and managing the schedule and inventory.
If you can imagine relaxing on a beach, while your business is simultaneously earning money to pay for your trip, then you should definitely look into the acquisition of an absentee business for sale. BizQuest can help you say goodbye to the typical 9-to-5 job and start your search for an absentee business or franchise for sale today!
