            Hi Dewayne,

            For this type of business, you are going to have a tough time finding an investor for 2 main reasons:

            1) If they wanted to be in the convenience store business, an investor would just buy it themselves and hire a manager to run it instead of sharing the equity with you. I'm not doubting your competency as a manager, but an investor wouldn't see managing a c-store as a skill that is hard to find. They'd most likely just pay the manager hourly, and keep the profits for themselves instead of having the manager hold an equity stake.

            2) The c-store business is tough business. Low barriers to entry, low margins, high competition, and these risks double or triple if you aren't a successful franchise.

            If you want to buy a store, you're best bet is to save up some money and find a seller willing to hold a note. These types of businesses tend not to show profitability due to their cash element, so bank financing would be tough.

            Best of luck!

              Hi Dewayne,

              Interesting, why not hang onto your C-store instead of selling it for profit. If you are making good income, why not get more money to expand your business and have less headaches and let someone else manage it for you? I would love to see the store if you have not found an investor yet and see what options we can put together for better profit. If you are processing credit cards and been in business for 1 year, we can help.

              email me or call
              Thanks,

                  Hey BigPayOut,

                  He'd have to own a store before he can keep it to make the profits. Maybe you should ready the post a little better.

                  As for needing an investor. I agree that you're going to have a hard time finding an investor. First off your grammer sucks just like mine and a potential investor may look at your post and see all the errors and wonder if you'll make more critical mistakes running your business. Just a heads up....

                  BTW, I'm betting BigPayOut is a merchant services agent. Just a hunch...
