Buying a Business

There’s no question that buying an existing business is far less risky than a startup. The success rate of established business is far greater and lenders and investors are often more comfortable financing companies with a proven track record. We understand acquiring a business could prove to be a tedious task, foreign to most. That’s why the ECBI Team is here to help you through the process. Don’t waste time on the ones that don’t have verifiable financial information. We don’t and you shouldn’t either. If you are ready to be your own boss and live by the beautiful Gulf Coast, Emerald Coast Business Intermediaries can help you navigate the process.

Our goal is to assist you in determining your requirements, then find the perfect business to meet those requirements, including size, location, industry and price. The Emerald Coast Team is familiar with the local market, including existing businesses offered for sale, and we’re ready to help make your dreams come true.
