Hello from John York with Durgan & Associates. The first question I would ask you is what rate of return do you expect from your investment. C-store / gas stations can be good long term investments but the rate of return can vary from location to location. I would suggest investing in a start up franchise development that will allow you or a marketing company to grow the business and over time have many partners giving you fees monthly. I have a great restaurant start up one year in the making. Please call me for details on this and many other franchise offerings. I work with Hu-Hot americas 2nd fastest growing small restaurant franchise. I was with the owner flying him in my airplane and I remember him saying to me how in just a few short years he has gone from one to the current number and enjoys receiving both start up and monthly payments on each franchise location. Imagine taking the money you talk about and growing it into millions a month being paid to you.

Have you considered owning a Florida based business. I own a spa in Pembroke Pines, FL (about 30 mins north of Miami). It is a new business still in its growth phase, but military commitments preclude me from devoting the time necessary to properly run the business. I am interested in a quick sale to include all assets of the business. The Spa is fully up and running to include staff, equipment and supplies (please see web reference for detail). Please call if interested: 619-663-7657.

Michael, have you already purchased your business? I see that you posted your ad Jan. 11th of this year. If you haven't found something, (highly unlikely on this board), please contact me at I have a business available in Chandler Arizona also in Maricopa County. To answer your question, it's always better if you can purchase a business at a cash price and not go into debt with a loan. Having said that, it depends on how much you want to earn per year for your ROI.
Kind Regards

Hello Michael,

I'm here in Mesa. I have a b-to-b software company that I could use a partner in. It is a business staple, the market is over 100B, though my part is about 30B. I have a list of customers who want my product, each worth about $15k-$45k/yr. I need a partner to help me complete development of it so I can push it out to market. Having someone sales minded would be an added benefit. Drop me a line and I'd be happy to meet and explain in more detail if you are interested. Being in sales I think you'll appreciate it :).

You might seriously consider a franchise. There are literally thousands available in all industries. The risk with a franchise is much lower than an individual start up. You have full support and training through the life of your business. I provide a NO cost service that helps you narrow down and evaluate the choices based on your individual set of criteria. Call if you'd like some assistance with the research and validation process.

I am a small contractor with 30 years experience looking to expand my business via a small but lucrative industry niche. This niche involves disaster related restoration work on homes and businesses which are covered and paid by insurance. I have plenty of excellent crews, having worked through several hurricanes and a few hail storms. I also have an excellent team for sales and marketing that provide leads and sales having the experience and expertise in working with the insurance companies using their programs and data to maximize both the profit margin and the over all scope of the job.

Even though this is the slow time of the year there are a few storms that would be perfect to work through until the spring storms bring fresh work. Right now would be the perfect time to get started and get a feel for things and get all the kinks worked out in time to jump into the next major storm with both feet.

I am open to the business arrangement and the amount to be invested however I can say through experience that a hands on investor usually hurts rather than helps because of their lack of experience in the industry.

The ROI should be in the 20-30% range with a minimum of 20K.

Just so you know, my competitors usually do 250,000 to 2,000,000 per month working these storms. The main difference is usually the financial resources available.

Thanks for your consideration. I can be reached at
