Hey guys and gals,

On a thread several months ago (or years) one of the forum members gave someone a link to a website where you could buy businesses and franchises. I believe it was on a blackjack thread where someone was giving a new counter advice to just buy a business instead of take up counting. Does anyone remember the thread, or know what website I am talking about where businesses are bought and sold? A simple google search reveals a lot of different websites but I cannot seem to find the one shared in that other thread.

If no one remembers the thread, does anyone have a recommendation for a website where businesses can be bought and sold? Thanks!

Ozzy

Thanks Rooster I'll check those out. I agree it is a great signature. It is the lyrics to "The Wizard" by Black Sabbath, Slightly modified of course :)
Homage to both the Prince of Darkness and the Prince of Gaming!

Please make sure you do your research on any franchise. Other than the top tier franchises like McDonalds and such, which require millions in cash and net worth before considering you, many are scams and not proven. Even Subway has plenty of stories of caution. There are benefits to going with a franchise but it is by no means a guarantee of profits. Do some research on "Dickeys BBQ" as an example.

Chick-Fil-A has a really sweet franchise deal. It's supposedly one of the best in the fast food business.

Fun fact, Subway is the cheapest franchise to start up. I think they say you you can open them for as little as $50k. Terrible sandwiches though.

Another fact... Chik-Fil-A doesn't sell franchises. If one wants to open a Chik-Fil-A, they are interviewed for a decent paying "Operator" position in the company, and the corporation builds/owns the location.

I looked into getting the Waffle House franchise territory for Las Vegas about 20 years ago. At that time someone already had the territory locked up. To date we still don't have any Waffle Houses in the Las Vegas area. The nearest Waffle house is in the Phoenix area which is 242 miles from my house.

Waffle House must have some weird territorial disputes going on. There used to be one right across the street from my house but it got torn down. Now there isn't one around for miles; they're all out in the suburbs. The demand is definitely there, but for some reason they're just in strange places.

I've been looking into buying a business in Vegas for over a. year. Had three that made the cut to serious examinations.
A dog grooming place,, a bar and a new idea that may or may not become a big thing.
The first two didn't withstand a close look, and the third was too speculative.
Do you due diligence, then do it again, then have an experienced outside set of eyes look at it.
It's what you do and not what you say If you're not part of the future then get out of the way
