  • Elegant Photo Booth Business with 51% Profit Margin

    Turn up the fancy for weddings, parties and corporate events with this elegant photo booth business netting a 51% profit margin!  Current owner runs mostly absentee, but increase profits by attending the photo booths yourself at each event.  An average 4 to 7-hour booking runs at just over $600 with expenses at $150 to $184, resulting in a net profit of over $415 per event!  Business is being turned away as the owner is unable to accommodate the demand, but 2015 and 2016 had 141 bookings each.  

    Customers can choose from 4 photo booth styles: wedding, party, VIP and Hollywood.  Booths range from a cozy, five-person capacity to a whopping 12-person affair.  Photo strips are presented on stylish VIP frames, and those waiting outside can see the fun within the booths broadcast over TV monitors.  Party guests are also treated to fun props to be used in the photo booths, and the Hollywood vibe is real with red carpets and stanchions for the VIP experience.

    Established in 2010, this business is fully operational and ready for a new owner to step in and begin booking events. Uniformed employees staff the booths as needed for the events, taking care of pre-event setup, helping customers during events, and teardown afterward.  The current owner books events and manages the contracted labor.  This business could easily continue on as an absentee operation, but profits would increase by an owner working the events. 

    In the first year, a buyer with a 15% down payment of $19,800 would profit $25,986 (131% return) after all debts are paid.

  • 30% Margin Commercial Truck & Trailer Resale

    Specializing in the sale of commercial used trucks and trailers, including grain trucks, dump trucks, cube trucks and flatbed trailers, this 40-year old business buys equipment from leasing companies, rehabs it and sells them at a 20% markup over cost. Most of the trucks are farm-related, but lumber yard and sanitation vehicles are also available, allowing for product diversification. An active website allows customers to see the inventory on hand; although many long-term clients buy the inventory sight-unseen, knowing that any customizations needed will be professionally completed before final delivery.

    Established business relationships make this a preferred business for clients and vendors because of the quality of the equipment delivered. Opportunities for growth include increasing the use of technology and offering in- house financing for purchases. A new owner might also consider making the business a “full service shop” so that additional modification services (such as painting) could be completed on-site rather than using outside vendors which add additional costs to the rehab process. The Seller will finance 15% of the purchase and will train a new owner for up to one year.

    Staff includes 5 full-time personnel, consisting of a service writer/manager, 3 techs and 1 general service person.  Some employees have been with the company for 8 or 9 years, providing customers with preventative maintenance, engine repair, exhaust checks, brake service and more.

    The current owner is the General Manager, but a new owner does not need to have extensive automotive experience.  The franchisor provides plenty of support and information, educating the owner in all areas needed for successful ownership.

    At a purchase price of $319,000 and 10% down ($31,900), the bank loan would be 68% collateralized by the $173,805 in assets.  A first year’s profit of $52,215 would return 163% of the 10% down after all debts.

  • Vinyl & Leather Repair with 70% Profit Margin

    Earn over $120,000 in cash flow and a large Corpus Christi territory with this vinyl & leather repair business.  In 2016, the owner/operator earned a 70% profit margin working Nueces and San Patricio counties.  Seller handles all work for local AutoNation, BMW and Volkswagen dealerships, and also does repair services for 8 other auto dealers.  As there is currently no storefront, there is no overhead expense.  The business has been in operation since 2001, but the seller is looking to move onto new investments, and requires the capital from a sale to do so. 

    Services range from vinyl and leather repair, to stain and odor removal.  Auto clients can also receive paint repair, dent removal and wheel refinishing.  Most clients are in the auto industry, but a new owner would see huge growth by expanding into restaurants, doctor’s offices and private homes.

    While the seller had employees in the past, he has since downsized to suit his needs.  However, a subcontractor for upholstery replacement is used, and that cost is covered by mark up to the end user.

    As mentioned before, growth exists in expanding to sectors outside of auto repair.  Many establishments have leather, vinyl and plastic that receive wear and tear.  Another great growth area would be in residential and commercial vinyl repair.

    If you love an open work schedule, working with your hands, and working in different settings, this is the perfect opportunity for financial independence.

    Included in the purchase is roughly $540,000 in assets, including brake supplies, airbags, suspension parts, and the software/equipment for Cummins trucks and Caterpillar motors.  The shop is full-service, with the exception of not completing major engine overhauls.  Customers are also able to purchase Rigguards and S-Cams through the business, and can stop in to purchase spare parts.

    Currently there is no advertising done, and all new business is word of mouth.  Due to its prime location between two major thoroughfares, simply advertising along them with billboards would draw in new semi traffic for maintenance and recurrent repair work.

  • Upscale Salon in Omaha Suburb

    Located in an Omaha suburb, this upscale salon has 6 stylists renting booths at $700/month.  With room for 2 more stylists and a nail technician, growth is an easy possibility.  Currently, the salon’s client mix is made up of 80% women provided with services such as haircuts, colors, styling, waxing, nails and spray tans.  

    Rent is low for the area at $2,063/month for 1,834 sq. ft., and the average household income is $79,506 per year.  While the current owner is selling due to family obligations, she is willing to stay on as a stylist post-close.  The salon is open 6 days a week, with Monday by appointment only.  A growth opportunity could exist in increasing hours.

    The Firm valued this business on a cost-to-create basis.  Taking into account the client list, salon reputation and location, it would take more time and expense to recreate it than to purchase at $116,000.  Due to the fact that the purchase price is below $250,000, an SBA Express Loan would be an ideal funding option.

    If you’re looking to expand your construction & remodeling services, or would like an absentee investment, this foam jacking and concrete lifting business is a nice addition for your company or portfolio.  Started in May 2013 as the first real foam jacking company in the Omaha metro, this business has continued to steadily grow, and offers all your concrete lifting needs, including caulking and sealing.

    With a labor staff of 2 working 5 days per week, roughly 5 to 6 jobs are completed each day, with the average ticket running from $400 to $500.  An office manager and a salesman schedule clients and take bids.  While the business is seasonal, work can be completed in winter, weather permitting.  The labor staff handles shop maintenance when outside work cannot be done during the off season.

    The seller currently uses a 180 sq. ft. office that he is willing to lease during a transition period for $1,400/month triple net.  An owner/operator does not need to utilize an office, especially if he/she decides to handle contracts and sales.  Clients rarely stop by the current office, so even an absentee owner could have the salesman and office manager work from home.

    Services range from vinyl and leather repair, to stain and odor removal.  Auto clients can also receive paint repair, dent removal and wheel refinishing.  Most clients are in the auto industry, but a new owner would see huge growth by expanding into restaurants, doctor’s offices and private homes.

    While the seller had employees in the past, he has since downsized to suit his needs.  However, a subcontractor for upholstery replacement is used, and that cost is covered by mark up to the end user.

    As mentioned before, growth exists in expanding to sectors outside of auto repair.  Many establishments have leather, vinyl and plastic that receive wear and tear.  Another great growth area would be in residential and commercial vinyl repair.

    If you love an open work schedule, working with your hands, and working in different settings, this is the perfect opportunity for financial independence.

  • Auger Manufacturer Sold in 235 Dealerships

    For nearly 50 years, this portable auger manufacturer has built a strong reputation and fostered brand loyalty. Located in the Midwest, over 230 dealerships across 9 states carry and sell this company’s products, which are built from start to finish on the business’ premises. Augers of all sizes (from 8” to 92’) and types (top drive, portable, direct drive) are delivered to dealerships under net 30 payment terms. So far, 2017 has seen over 50 augers built and delivered, with 240 built and 260 sold in 2016.

    Inventory build-up is an important part of this business, and the ag equipment industry in general, as demonstrated by 2016’s numbers. All inventory built in 2016 was sold, in addition to 20 carried over from 2015. The company had not planned ahead with inventory and were not able to meet demand in 2016, which was already a slower year due to a decrease in crop prices. Augers are an impulse buy, so having inventory on hand for dealerships or the occasional customer ordering direct, is a must.

    On staff are 15 employees, 11 of whom are skilled or unskilled plant laborers. Laborers, including a Production Supervisor, handle all assembly and painting. The office is staffed by an Office Manager and two salesmen. There is a General Manager who will stay on for transition, but will be leaving to join his family living in a different town.

    The business has over $2M in assets, with much of it comprised of inventory parts and completed machinery. Inventory and equipment are housed across the campus’ 11 buildings, which total 69,000 sq. ft. Growth exists in manufacturing longer augers and building up inventory with capital investments.

  • 30% Margin Commercial Truck & Trailer Resale

    Specializing in the sale of commercial used trucks and trailers, including grain trucks, dump trucks, cube trucks and flatbed trailers, this 40-year old business buys equipment from leasing companies, rehabs it and sells them at a 20% markup over cost. Most of the trucks are farm-related, but lumber yard and sanitation vehicles are also available, allowing for product diversification. An active website allows customers to see the inventory on hand; although many long-term clients buy the inventory sight-unseen, knowing that any customizations needed will be professionally completed before final delivery.

    Established business relationships make this a preferred business for clients and vendors because of the quality of the equipment delivered. Opportunities for growth include increasing the use of technology and offering in- house financing for purchases. A new owner might also consider making the business a “full service shop” so that additional modification services (such as painting) could be completed on-site rather than using outside vendors which add additional costs to the rehab process. The Seller will finance 15% of the purchase and will train a new owner for up to one year.

    Due to ailing parents, the seller is planning to move to Los Angeles, but his dedication to customer service and engendering loyalty has built a strong business.  However, an easy area for growth would be working with property managers to gain more clients.  Commercial cleaning is a strong industry, and a growth plan could include offering services to apartment buildings for cleaning between renters.

    This business is perfect for someone wanting to manage a profitable company without being involved in labor.  Currently, the owner trains employees, bids jobs and oversees quality control.

  • Vinyl & Leather Repair with 70% Profit Margin

    Earn over $120,000 in cash flow and a large Corpus Christi territory with this vinyl & leather repair business.  In 2016, the owner/operator earned a 70% profit margin working Nueces and San Patricio counties.  Seller handles all work for local AutoNation, BMW and Volkswagen dealerships, and also does repair services for 8 other auto dealers.  As there is currently no storefront, there is no overhead expense.  The business has been in operation since 2001, but the seller is looking to move onto new investments, and requires the capital from a sale to do so. 

    Services range from vinyl and leather repair, to stain and odor removal.  Auto clients can also receive paint repair, dent removal and wheel refinishing.  Most clients are in the auto industry, but a new owner would see huge growth by expanding into restaurants, doctor’s offices and private homes.

    While the seller had employees in the past, he has since downsized to suit his needs.  However, a subcontractor for upholstery replacement is used, and that cost is covered by mark up to the end user.

    As mentioned before, growth exists in expanding to sectors outside of auto repair.  Many establishments have leather, vinyl and plastic that receive wear and tear.  Another great growth area would be in residential and commercial vinyl repair.

    If you love an open work schedule, working with your hands, and working in different settings, this is the perfect opportunity for financial independence.

    Included in the purchase is roughly $540,000 in assets, including brake supplies, airbags, suspension parts, and the software/equipment for Cummins trucks and Caterpillar motors.  The shop is full-service, with the exception of not completing major engine overhauls.  Customers are also able to purchase Rigguards and S-Cams through the business, and can stop in to purchase spare parts.

    Currently there is no advertising done, and all new business is word of mouth.  Due to its prime location between two major thoroughfares, simply advertising along them with billboards would draw in new semi traffic for maintenance and recurrent repair work.

    Staff includes 12 employees spread across sales, graphics/IT, production, printing, assembly and shipping.  The owners, who are looking to retire, spend roughly 30-40 hours each per week in management and sales.  For a consultation fee, one of the owners is willing to remain available as an industry and company resource. 

    Having built a name for itself, this business has an 80% repeat clientele among Fortune 500 companies, and organizations in healthcare, software, database, educational, and hospitality industries.  With the recent purchase of a new flatbed press, clients can request custom printed products, from floor tiles to ceiling tiles.  This has huge potential for growth and a new owner focused in this area could see more clientele across many disciplines.

    At a purchase price of $810,000 and a 10% down payment of $81,000, a buyer would be acquiring a strong client base, and proprietary software and processes.  With sales continually over the $1M mark for the past 4 years, this is a company that has proven it can adapt to changing tech demands.

  • Frameless Cabinet Design & Installation with 33% Profit Margin

    In operation for 25 years, this frameless cabinet design & installation business with a 33% profit margin includes a 6,800-sq. ft. space containing a workshop and showroom.  Located in Omaha and serving the entire Metro area, business is comprised of 30% remodels and 70% new construction.  While a majority of jobs are residential, commercial projects for law and medical offices are an occasional revenue stream.

    Sales have increased by 24% from 2015 to 2016, with the seller’s cash flow rising by 35% during the same period.  Very little is done in advertising, with most customers coming in as referrals.  Occasionally the seller will reach out to builders to express interest in specific projects.  Currently there are 4 employees, all of whom are “jack-of-all trades” and able to work in carpentry and installation.

    Materials are mostly sourced from local vendors, but exceptions can be made depending on the customer’s requirements.  Invoices range from $2,000 to $90,000, with the average invoice priced at roughly $22,000.  Customers pay 50% before the project begins, and the remainder is billed after completion.  Jobs are not necessarily done one at a time, but rather many are worked on at the same time and in different stages.

    Growth exists in adding hardware services and using CAD drawing for projects, as well as increasing the number of commercial jobs done.  This would be a great business for a custom home builder to add as part of their services.

    Priced at $572,000, a 20% down payment of $114,400 would net a first year’s profit of $122,666 after debts, representing a 107% return on investment.

  • Auger Manufacturer Sold in 235 Dealerships

    For nearly 50 years, this portable auger manufacturer has built a strong reputation and fostered brand loyalty. Located in the Midwest, over 230 dealerships across 9 states carry and sell this company’s products, which are built from start to finish on the business’ premises. Augers of all sizes (from 8” to 92’) and types (top drive, portable, direct drive) are delivered to dealerships under net 30 payment terms. So far, 2017 has seen over 50 augers built and delivered, with 240 built and 260 sold in 2016.

    Inventory build-up is an important part of this business, and the ag equipment industry in general, as demonstrated by 2016’s numbers. All inventory built in 2016 was sold, in addition to 20 carried over from 2015. The company had not planned ahead with inventory and were not able to meet demand in 2016, which was already a slower year due to a decrease in crop prices. Augers are an impulse buy, so having inventory on hand for dealerships or the occasional customer ordering direct, is a must.

    On staff are 15 employees, 11 of whom are skilled or unskilled plant laborers. Laborers, including a Production Supervisor, handle all assembly and painting. The office is staffed by an Office Manager and two salesmen. There is a General Manager who will stay on for transition, but will be leaving to join his family living in a different town.

    The business has over $2M in assets, with much of it comprised of inventory parts and completed machinery. Inventory and equipment are housed across the campus’ 11 buildings, which total 69,000 sq. ft. Growth exists in manufacturing longer augers and building up inventory with capital investments.

Knowledgeable staff can handle Canadian taxes and payroll, and having a Canadian location opens up business with Canadian oilfields that are rapidly growing and can profit 3x what can be made just servicing agribusiness.

    Proprietary products are used by both large and small operations, making it the most effective water tank in North America. A new buyer assumes ownership of concrete forms, tools, equipment, inventory, A/R, trademarks and vehicles totaling over $1.4M – allowing the bank loan to be fully collateralized!

    Capture growth by increasing production and marketing efforts to distributors.  Currently there is no marketing done, so the potential is large.  An industry insider could add this to their carpet cleaning business and continue retail to wholesalers.

Other employees include a billing manager and a service/delivery tech who is on call alternating weeks to provide emergency delivery and service.  Current owners handle A/P, A/R, scheduling and oversight, but are not store managers as they are not licensed respiratory therapists.

     

    ACHC accredited and part of the BBB Honor Roll, current owners have set up a Connect Program that allows for easy outreach to patients needing resupply. While there are local competitors, many are evolving to no longer carry Medicare or provide shipment, leaving a gap for this business to step in.  There is virtually no competition with Lincoln or Omaha markets, as this company is designed for rural populations unable or unwilling to travel to large cities for medical supplies. 

     

    Due to a growing family, current owners are unable to devote the 30/40 hours per week for business management, so the business is priced to move!

    Projects can last anywhere from 1 day to a few weeks, or even years depending on the scope.  Service consists of completing physical testing requested by the clients, analyzing the samplings, compiling the findings into professional reports and submitting to the client for further action and compliance. Based on these results, the client is then able to move forward with the next phases of their projects or are able to be directed in a new direction as needed.

    The current owner is responsible for proposal writing and drafting, technical writing, project management and oversight as well as field work.  However, all employees are well-trained and have years of experience.  Almost all of the owner’s duties are regularly performed by the staff so that day-to-day management does not require his presence.  

    The building is 4,000 sq. ft. leased at $1,300/month with the office only occupying 1/3 of it.  Storage is ample for all equipment.  Business is somewhat seasonal, with an influx of construction projects during spring, summer and fall months.  The winter is hardly a down time, as there are still projects and equipment maintenance to do.

    Growth exists in expanding service and territory area, as well as accepting the numerous job bids that the current owner has passed on due to pulling back from the business.  The oil and gas industry is also fairly robust, and the current owner recommends moving into Phase II testing in that industry.

  • Award-Winning Steakhouse Serving Over 300 Per Night

     

    3 deals in 1, this restaurant, convenience store and gas station are all under one roof.  Awarded Best Steak and Best Kept Secret for the past several years, over 300 customers per night are served at the steakhouse.  Located along a 4-lane highway near the junction of two well-traveled highways, customers come from as far away as York and Lincoln to enjoy the best 16oz. steak and wings for miles around.

    Meat is cut on the premises and is never frozen, only vacuum packed.  Customers frequently stop by in the evening for custom-cut meat selected from a display case.  Clients are also treated to beef jerky, proprietary seasoning and homemade soups.

    With an open layout, customers can see from the convenience store all the way through the bar area and into the restaurant.  Shaped similar to a horseshoe, the bar seats 16, and on busy weekends, restaurant goers often stand 2 deep to get a seat for dinner.  The steakhouse is staffed by 34 waiters, bartenders, and kitchen workers, all ready to quickly serve quality meals.  On heavy nights, anywhere from 150 to 300 customers are served, with roughly 250 ordering steaks.

    As the restaurant is open sparingly throughout the week, the convenience store and fuel station are heavily-trafficked.  A full-service location, travelers are afforded typical conveniences from 6am to 1am Monday through Friday, and from 7am to 1am on the weekend.

    Growth is endless due to its location along a popular highway.  Adding a truck wash could increase the semi crowd, as the nearest one is in York.  Located not far from an ethanol plant, a buyer could also convert the business into a truck stop destination.  Restaurant hours could also be extended to appeal to a lunch crowd.  A buyer could take advantage of the on-the-premises butchering by advertising this service more.  Since almost no advertising or marketing has been done over the years, the smallest changes in that area would be beneficial.

  • Livestock Concrete Water Tank Manufacturer; 620+ International Retail Locations

    Seller is willing to train for up to 2 years (if desired) to ensure a smooth transition. With a proprietary concrete formulation of 9,000 PSI, this business has carved a niche in the market for feedlots, cow/calf operations, zoos, and oilfields looking for a superior, hardy product to water their animals. Stocked in over 620 retail locations between Canada and the U.S., the products are manufactured at their Nebraska plant and distributed across North America. There are offices in each country, with sales and management staff in place that are equipped to handle cross border documents and transactions.

    Over 50% of sales are throughout retail stores in North America, with the majority of the remaining sales made up through direct sales to feedlots and cow/calf operations. No one customer/distributor makes up more than 10% of sales, and this company is the exclusive distributor for the largest rodeo equipment manufacturer in the world!

    Already established in Canada, a new owner would save millions and shorten the 5-year learning curve required to get up and running in Canada. Knowledgeable staff can handle Canadian taxes and payroll, and having a Canadian location opens up business with Canadian oilfields that are rapidly growing and can profit 3x what can be made just servicing agribusiness.

    Proprietary products are used by both large and small operations, making it the most effective water tank in North America. A new buyer assumes ownership of concrete forms, tools, equipment, inventory, A/R, trademarks and vehicles totaling over $1.4M – allowing the bank loan to be fully collateralized!

    Each location has a Respiratory Therapist managing the store and 3 customer service reps. Other employees include a billing manager and a service/delivery tech who is on call alternating weeks to provide emergency delivery and service.  Current owners handle A/P, A/R, scheduling and oversight, but are not store managers as they are not licensed respiratory therapists.

     

    ACHC accredited and part of the BBB Honor Roll, current owners have set up a Connect Program that allows for easy outreach to patients needing resupply. While there are local competitors, many are evolving to no longer carry Medicare or provide shipment, leaving a gap for this business to step in.  There is virtually no competition with Lincoln or Omaha markets, as this company is designed for rural populations unable or unwilling to travel to large cities for medical supplies. 

     

    Due to a growing family, current owners are unable to devote the 30/40 hours per week for business management, so the business is priced to move!
