Small percentage of restaurant company with 10 locations for sale. How do I find buyers?

I own a little more than 3% of the company. The company has one very well known investor who intends to grow the company and then sell it for a substantial profit. The company owns 6 corporate locations and there are currently 4 franchise locations. The company strategy is to sell 30 franchises over the next year.

I agree that your best bet, if possible, is to sell to another shareholder. If that's not feasible, then absolutely interview maybe three business brokers; but, make sure you don't waste your time with inexperienced brokers. Ask first, to deal with a veteran that has been in the business full-time for maybe more than ten years. Then, during the interview ask them to take you through the whole process. How will they value your business, effectively market your business, negotiate and structure the transaction and why? There are many questions that should be answered without you even having to ask. Lastly, make sure the professional that you hire is somebody you trust and understand.

If your only going to sell 3%, then you would be better off selling it off to a corporate member that already has stake in it. Its not worth much to most Investors/ aquisitions. But dont give up.......anything is possible. Good Luck!
