  • 5 DVMs at Double Location Vet Practice

    Specializing in large animal, this northeastern Nebraska double location vet practice has 5 DVMs. The three current owners are looking to slowly transition out of the operation over the next 3 years, and are looking for an absentee owner to take interest in the business now. All three owners split time between the two locations, and are helped by two non-owner DVMs. While the practice has operations in two different towns, the distance between both is just a 15-minute drive.

    With focus in the care of cattle, roughly 80% of services are focused on cow/calf and feedlot operations, including processing facilities. A large part of services involves dispensation of medication and antibiotics, and comprises 1/4 to 1/3 of income. The vets also assist with swine operations, equine facilities and some small animal concerns.  Very little emergency services are provided, except for assistance during calving season.

    Six feed yard technicians, helping with the examination and treatment of animals, assist the vets. Each location has an office manager to handle daily operations, including A/R, A/P and payroll, and run the facilities.  The locations include corrals to hold animals dropped off for longer-term care.

    A growth opportunity exists in increasing small animal care, which currently only comprises about 8% of income. Even without that increase, a 10% down payment of $139,000 would yield a first year’s profit of $158,147 after debt payments.

    With focus in the care of cattle, roughly 80% of services are focused on cow/calf and feedlot operations, including processing facilities. A large part of services involves dispensation of medication and antibiotics, and comprises 1/4 to 1/3 of income. The vets also assist with swine operations, equine facilities and some small animal concerns.  Very little emergency services are provided, except for assistance during calving season.

    Six feed yard technicians, helping with the examination and treatment of animals, assist the vets. Each location has an office manager to handle daily operations, including A/R, A/P and payroll, and run the facilities.  The locations include corrals to hold animals dropped off for longer-term care.

    A growth opportunity exists in increasing small animal care, which currently only comprises about 8% of income. Even without that increase, a 10% down payment of $139,000 would yield a first year’s profit of $158,147 after debt payments.

  • Mechanic Grossing $1M+: Semi & Commercial Trucks

    Located in Nebraska, this semi repair business has been in operation for 23+ years, and consistently earns over $1M in sales.  Daily clients come from a 50-mile radius, and many from within 300 miles are served as well.  There are 3 local fleets with 200 semis between them that receive anywhere from daily maintenance to monthly or weekly checks.  Many of the customers are in the ag industry, and the company’s location close to an interstate and a highway are perfect for drawing in customers.

    The company is located in a 4,000-sq. ft. space leased at $1,000/month.  3 full-time employees, all skilled mechanics, earn $20-$23/hour repairing semis and trailers for 500 active clients.  Labor charges are $80/hour plus parts, with the average ticket ranging between $500 to $600.  While the seller is somewhat involved in daily maintenance, the employees are able to handle the workload, and a new owner need not be as involved in mechanic work.

    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.

    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.

Customers engage this company for transportation to medical, eye and dental appointments, with many of them coming through the Missouri Medicaid system.

    Accounts are billed per leg, with the 4th quarter of 2017 accumulating a total of 4,412 trip legs. This averages out to over 730 round trips per month. The company contracts to 12 drivers that all use their own vehicles. There is a company-owned vehicle that is leased to one of the drivers, and this car could be part of the purchase.

    Expansion exists in adding additional everyday living services for errands, shopping trips, airport transportation and more. Currently not equipped to handle wheelchairs, a buyer could purchase some wheelchair-equipped vehicles or seek out drivers with these vehicles already. A buyer could also explore state grants for vehicle purchases, but would need to fulfill all grant requirements for submission. Hours could also be expanded, as well as developing more relationships with local nursing and senior living centers.

    This is an excellent opportunity to own a company in a much-needed service area, and growth is limited only to the buyer’s desire. A buyer would need to pay just 10% down to own a solid company.

Currently not equipped to handle wheelchairs, a buyer could purchase some wheelchair-equipped vehicles or seek out drivers with these vehicles already. A buyer could also explore state grants for vehicle purchases, but would need to fulfill all grant requirements for submission. Hours could also be expanded, as well as developing more relationships with local nursing and senior living centers.

    This is an excellent opportunity to own a company in a much-needed service area, and growth is limited only to the buyer’s desire. A buyer would need to pay just 10% down to own a solid company.

    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.

    The current owner purchased in 2013 and has dramatically increased sales by over 50%.  However, the seller’s main business has also grown and requires much attention. A buyer skilled in sales and management should be able to grow the business to over $3M in sales, which is common for many franchise locations.

In any given week, staff are working for 20 clients, with a handful working full time at the back of the house. While 2 key employees handle scheduling and billing, there is a list of about 50 for event staffing, ensuring that the seller can step away for vacations without a worry.

From large scale public events to weddings, this company has a retail inventory that can accommodate over 150 events each year.  More than half of clients come specifically for pipe and drape rentals, and the sellers have maintained a huge selection of styles and colors to assist with any event.

    A buyer would need to have storage space ready to accommodate the inventory, but as the sellers do keep more inventory than is necessary for success, a space of about 2,500 sq. ft. should suffice. With a good name and strong relationships in place, this is an excellent business to grow through increased marketing and partner alliances.

At a list price of $110,000 and a down payment of only $33,000, this established gallery has great possibility for a new owner.

    He moved into commissioned portraiture and then figurative realism by the early 1980s, reaching national acclaim when he was discovered by the New York art market through Tatistcheff Gallery and then later Forum Gallery in New York.

    Bellows’ drawings and paintings have been included in exhibitions at the Huntsville Museum of Art, Florida International University, the National Academy of Design, Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery, the Arkansas Arts Center, the University of Missouri, and art galleries from New York to California.

    His work has been acquired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New Britain Museum of American Art, the Toledo Museum of Art, the Arkansas Arts Center, Joslyn Art Museum, and by the collections of Glenn C. Jans, Jalane and Richard Davidson, Rita Rich, and Richard D. Segal (Seavest Collection).

  • Home Furnishings Store with 200K Cash Flow

    Located just off a busy metro Omaha intersection, this home furnishings store grosses $915,000 and has potential for passive ownership. Since 2014, the seller has seen a 17% increase in cash flow and a profit margin of 23%. Currently, the seller works in the store overseeing day-to-day operations, but has expressed that one of the salesmen would be ideal to take over a managerial position.

Including a showroom, the building houses $50,000 in inventory that is marked up between 50% and 75%.

  • Fine Art Gallery Perfect for Events Pending

    Located in a popular Omaha neighborhood, this fine art gallery is the perfect space for weddings and events. Begun in 1980, the current owner has worked to build decades-old relationships with artists, and the gallery currently houses artwork from over 100 artists across the Midwest and Southwest. The seller is looking to retire, and has started to step back from the business over the past couple of years.

    While the owner still maintains relationships with customers and artists, puts together shows and handles some accounting, there are key employees in place. A manager with 10 years of tenure is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the gallery and handles many of the seller’s duties. To assist the manager are 2 FT personnel and 7 PT personnel. A mover is subcontracted when large pieces are needing transportation.

    Artwork is displayed within the roughly 4,750-sq. ft. facility, with plenty of space to hold small weddings or events. The seller does work with some preferred vendors, and space rental prices range from $1,200 to $1,600. Seating accommodates 150, while cocktail parties can fit 200 guests.

    While the current owner does not actively need to search for new artists, there is room for growth in other areas.

At a list price of $110,000 and a down payment of only $33,000, this established gallery has great possibility for a new owner.
