    Need capital to buy out thriving business!!

    danceteach57 Newbie
      Hello Everyone,

      My partner and I are looking for capital to purchase our place of employment before it is sold to someone else. It is a franchise and has been in the area since the 70's and been and is a profitable business. My partner and I have over 40 years experience collectively and it is our dream to own this business. I have been there since 1979. Please let me know if you can help us or if you know of anyone who can. Thanks!!

          Have you considered and SBA to help finance the business?

                Hi Luckiest,

                Yes, we are looking to buy the dance studio where we are employed. We are looking for capital between $125 to $150,000 with an exit plan of 3 years. Bank is really not an option for us and we are looking for alternative financing. We can possibly get copies of tax papers from the current accountant. The studio has been in operation since the 70's and has been and is a profitable operation. Being that it is a franchise, there are guidelines that must be followed with a proven teaching system and training that, if followed, guarantees success. Please let us know if you can help with any suggestions, etc. as we are new to this process and really need help in knowing where to turn. Thanks.

                Hi Danceteach57,

                 


                To get a better idea of what type of financing solutions might be available at this time and make the most sense, I'd have to know a bit more about the business (price, revenues, profitability etc) as well as your and your partner's credit, assets, debt etc. I'be be happy to talk to you on the phone or in person as I'm a fellow Charlottean! Feel free to call me 7 days a week at 704-900-7003 or email me at jbernstone@b2businessfinance.com.

                Best regards and good luck with your project!
