About the Company

Empire Business Brokers of Greenville Spartanburg, SC helps business sellers and buyers transition into lifestyles that meet their goals, dreams and aspirations. We help entrepreneurs get what they want! Empire provides confidential buying and selling assistance to small, growing and middle market companies in the Upstate SC and Western NC areas of the sunbelt.

If you have a small business for sale, consider keeping the sale confidential by using the professional services of a business broker. As a business brokerage, we have professionals who understand what brings value as you prepare your small business for sale. In the case of representing a small organization, we serve as small business brokers for companies with annual revenues less than three million dollars.

The same is true with growing companies, and middle market companies. Although you are an expert in your industry, you have limited experience in selling a business, and this can place you at a disadvantage when you negotiate with an experienced business buyer. Our certified business brokers can help guide you through the selling process, while allowing you to focus on one of your most important assets; your business!

Call us for a free, confidential consultation: 864-241-0606.

If you are a business buyer, you want to ultimately buy the type of business that will provide to you the income and lifestyle that meets your personal objectives. A business broker can expose you to a large number of business opportunities and find a best buy for you. Click here to learn about our B.A.S.E. program.
