If you're ready to move on, now is the right time to sell your wholesale yogurt business.
Preparing Your Wholesale Yogurt Business for Sale
The outcome of a business sale is largely determined prior to a market listing. Profitable wholesale yogurt business listings are the culmination of a preparation process that began months or even years ahead of time. Even though it may take years to adequately position your wholesale yogurt business, the amount of preparation you perform will have direct correlation on asking and sale prices. Additionally, you'll need time to compile financials and other information that buyers will expect to receive.
Why Confidentiality Matters
Confidentiality determines risk in the business-for-sale marketplace. A low-key selling strategy is a low risk activity because you can control who does (and doesn't) know that your business is on the market. Eventually, word will leak out. When that happens, it can damage your standing with customers and vendors. Although it can be difficult, it's important to strike a balance between confidentiality and sale promotion. Brokers and consultants can mitigate the risk by implementing confidential sale techniques.
Selecting a Broker
Good business brokers inevitably produce better business sales. No two wholesale yogurt business sales are alike. That means you'll want to look for a broker who has been around the block and possesses substantial experience selling businesses in the industry. As a practical matter, you'll also want to focus your search on brokers who have pre-existing relationships with attorneys, appraisers, and other professionals who can provide assistance at various stages of the process.
