Buying a Business

There’s no doubt the Internet has changed the way we do business, and that includes the way we look for business opportunities.  It used to be that if you wanted to find a motel for sale by owner, you would simply pick up the Classifieds section of your local newspaper.  In many cases, entrepreneurs had to hire a business broker in order to find motels for sale by owner. 

Today, if you are looking for motels for sale by owner or you want to learn how to buy a motel, all you need to do is find a business opportunities directory.  Most online directories will tell you a lot more than which businesses are for sale.  In the case of hotels and motels, they will give you an in-depth profile of the seller’s business and a direct line of communication to request more information.  Looking for cheap motels for sale?  Then chances are a good “Businesses FSBO” site will offer a wealth of information about motels for sale by owner in your area.

When you consider how many different types of businesses there are, it can be mind boggling.  But the truth is, many businesses are run purely for profit and aren’t much fun for the owner.  For the would-be entrepreneur, it makes sense to discover what type of business will really get you out of bed in the morning. If you love to bake and enjoy serving the public, buying a baked goods business may be a great idea.

In a recent to the report, the global bakery market is anticipated to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7.04% between 2014 and 2019. There is an increase in demand for gluten-free products as well as organic products.

Fifty percent of industry volume is from baked breads, mainly white, wheat and rye; 20 percent from rolls, buns, muffins, bagels and croissants; 11 percent from soft cakes; and the rest from pies, pastries, doughnuts and a variety of sweet goods.  Annual U.S. per capita consumption of bread is close to 60 pounds. 

Before you buy a bakery, and start “rolling in dough”, there are a few things you should know about what makes a baking business unique.

You might already be thinking about buying a motel or hotel, but how do your research a potential property on your own without a business broker? When a motel is listed as “for sale by owner,” it is important to prepare your questions ahead of time and research comparable listings in the area. Without broker’s fees, the transaction will likely be much less expensive for both parties, making it a wise investment, but not every hotel or motel is worth its selling price.

If you have always wanted to be an entrepreneur, there has never been a better time to buy an existing business. Just one look at a “Businesses for Sale by Owner” directory and you will see how many businesses are available at rock-bottom prices. But don’t be too quick to make a decision. Often there is a good reason why the current business owner is selling. Perhaps they didn’t have enough working capital, or they failed to recognize key industry trends in time to stay ahead of the competition.

Small manufacturers can offer specialized and personalized products that larger manufacturers cannot make profitably.
