this is a wide open question however my recommendation would be something in the recycling field.
I am an expert in the field and also have several listings in the field of recycling.It is growing,regulation creates a higher barrier to entry for competitors and it is used locally,nationally and internationally.

I recently stumbled across your posting regarding your interest in a new business opportunity. I am a young entreprenuer living in Minneapolis Minnesota. I own both a entertainment company (events and concerts) as well as a company devoted to SEO, website optimizations, website templates, etc. Anyway one of my close friends and current business partners is looking to sell one of his many businesses. Obviously your post was quite vague so I'm not sure if you would be interested in his business as it is strip club. It is located in Downtown Minneapolis and has recently undergone many amazing renovations. It is in great condition and in an excellent area. Personally this is not my type of industry, but if you are looking for something that has amazing potential than it would be worth your time to take a look. Feel free to email me back or give me a call if you so desire. If you want my number, email me back and I will send it to you.

Thank you and have a great day,

$500k is a sizable liquor store, one with a special inventory, or a location that has property included in the deal. You're realistically looking at $200k - $300k for most existing liquor stores.

Dry cleaning operations are strong choices at that price point. They have some of the lowest failure rates of any small business according to the SBA loan registry, have high margins, and are fairly simple to administer. A $500k investment would be sufficient to secure a number of drop locations and a commercial wash plant.

You may also want to consider becoming a "master" franchisee for a senior care business. This allows you to sell franchises, collect royalties, and develop an entire area of business.

If you're interested in getting information on any of these options, let me know.

Hey Sean Checkout the business I put in the web reference. The seller is motivated to sell and is willing to offer some financing. The best buyer to buy from is an eager one. Good Luck

I disagree with the people who discourage the buyers from going into new businesses. As a matter of fact
if you buy a well set business with a track record of consistent sales and income and if it is coming with longtime working of employees( not less than 3 as if one employee may runaway and jeoperdize your consistent income) there is no harm in taking this well calculated risk. It is just like that if you don'topen a new book you don't know what you were missing. I have sold several businesses during last 15 years
to new successfull buyers.
I have a gas station listed for sale that is 90% independant absentee owner run in orange county California that is generating 180k to 200k net with that investment of 500k. If interested contact me:

We have a tremendous opportunity in which you will need a fraction of that $500k, yet will net you between $200-700k - no BS! There is no other opportunity or existing business available that will offer you the financial opportunity that this will, and you can operate from your area.

e-mail or call me at 516 227-0100 and we can discuss it.

The best business would be the online business growing bigger than retail in some cases, and expected by 2015 to be larger than the offline retail markets. I'm heavily in the online game with over 200+ websites most generating passive income :) Email me if your interested in doing some business together.

It should be a business you know front to back and are prepared to work lots of hours at. Do NOT invest in a type of business that is new to you. If you do, the odds are slim that you will be successful.

a wine store would be a great investment as this is one of the investment classified recently as the 10 best investments to do over the next few years. The compounded growth over the next 5 years is estimated to be above 5%. another type of business seeing great success are bakeries. Now in both cases, you need to not only understand the business but also to have some experience as this is always key to success.
