Business Listed by Douglas T. Walker, CBI, SBA, CMEASunbelt Business Brokers of Greater ChicagoView All of My Listings
$105K down buys more than $160K in existing annual cash flow! This existing well-established 20 year business is a part of a national franchise that makes and sells a premium product very important for good health. This product has become increasingly important to aging baby-boomers. A product that everyone wants, needs and buys! If you want to own your own business, prefer to purchase something established with a strong foundation, representing a well-known national brand, would prefer manufacturing, but also recognize the value of control over retail sales, would like a proven "systemized" operation that allows you to delegate day-to-day operations in favor of marketing and strategic planning, want to raise your family outside the hustle and bustle and taxes of the Chicago suburbs, but be close enough to the city to enjoy the shopping, sightseeing and culture and want to be in business for yourself, but not by yourself...then you've finally found the right listing! Sound too good to be true? Incredibly, this is a more EXTRAORDINARY OPPORTUNITY due to the strong established sales of this market, the franchisor is willing to allow the buyer of this business to absorb an established adjacent $1MM market for a fraction of the normal cost. This opportunity to combine markets and leverage the existing manufacturing facility saves the buyer more than $160K and DOUBLES the income potential to $2M!
