Seeking easy to operate, stable, recession resistant cash cow

I am an individual with experience owning a variety of businesses over the last 25 years. My net worth is over $2mm and I have over $500k in cash available for an outright purchase or to use as a down payment on a larger opportunity. I am looking for a stable business that has continued to produce a profitable bottom line in the current recession. I prefer a business that has a manager in place that is currently run absentee that might improve with a hands-on owner (keeping the existing manager inplace). I am willing to look at any class of business. Bring me what you have as long as it currently (YTD 2009) cash flows to the owner a minimum of $100,000 a year and is in the Austin, Texas area.

Hello, I am an Established Funeral Home owner. I am thinking about selling, I have relocated with my family and currently working on a diffrent project. The buisness is currently being run by a manager and full staff. My buisness has continued to do well during some rough financial times and we have currently put a Funeral home near by, operating for over 100 years, out of business. This is by far a profitable buisness in our current recesion. The staff and manager will stay for the next owner. For any questions please contact me at

AIRST STANN business brokers and M & A can do a search for you in the Austin Texas region. Since you have a substantial amount of cash for a deposit, you may want to look dividing this amount to spread your risk, especially in the current recession, across a variety of opportuntities. You can combine your deposit with seller financing to further limit your risk in the current economy. Gas stations with convenience stores are often excellent opportunities which offer the ability to increase cash flow with a hands-on owner (keeping the existing manager in place). In addition, they often include extra land which can be developed for a fast food restaurant or other business increasing cash flow for a buyer's benefit. We have in-house and alliance expertise. Contact a senior business broker - buyer representative at Airst Stann (website: to discuss further.
