** M&A brokers focused on every aspect of selling your business **
Since October 2006, Allan Taylor has been focused exclusively on helping business owners with the sale of their most valuable asset: their business.
We take your life’s work as seriously as you do. We give careful thought and consideration to each engagement we take, plus we make sure that our strengths are a good match for you and your goals for a sale. We’ll give you our honest opinion throughout the entire process, something we hope you will notice from our very first meeting!
** Quality over quantity makes us a “boutique” firm **
At Allan Taylor we build relationships before we broker deals. In order to give you our best, we prefer to work closely with a small number of successful and dedicated business owners. We spend hundreds of hours on the different phases involved in selling your business (typically a minimum of 200 hours), working collaboratively with your other advisors, as well as the buyer and their deal team. Our goal is to avoid disappointment by making sure all of our expectations are aligned before moving forward with selling your business.
We do our best to partner with business owners who have similar values -- including honesty, transparency, respect and follow through.
** How we differ from traditional business brokers **
Finding the right people to help you sell your business can be a difficult task. Our clients tend to need a firm with a higher level of expertise and professionalism than the typical “Main Street” business brokerage firms, yet who are too small for the world of investment bankers.
Allan Taylor fills the gap.
We don’t run our business based on a real estate model and we won’t try to “sell” you on selling your business. On the contrary, we’ve found that successful sales require informed decisions, adequate preparation and a firm commitment from everyone involved. If we don’t think all of the ingredients are there for a successful sale, we’ll tell you as much and suggest working together on a plan to get you there.

Hot Springs, AR
Owners returning to family in UK and selling this turnkey business in year round resort town. Hot Springs attracts visitors for many activities from spas, weddings, horseracing, crystal mining, hiking, off roading, lake recreation, sports, park activities and conventions. The Hotsprings.org organization works exclusively to bring tourist and business events to town and the opportunity to address these markets is enormous.
The owners will train buyer as needed (including any first time innkeeper) on all aspects of running the inn. Fully trained housekeepers, systems and property management software can be retained to facilitate a smooth transition and allow new innkeepers free time. The inn may also appeal to current bed and breakfast owners looking for some more free time. A full or part time manager could potentially be employed and still allow for owners cashflow, particularly if the direct and online booking channels were optimized.
The Inn is located on scenic highway 7, one mile from historic downtown Hot Springs, the National Park, convention center and bathhouse row. Also convenient for racetrack/casino and Magic Springs theme park. The location brings drive in guests and provides easy 15 minute walk downtown. Highly rated restaraunts are located less than half a mile from the inn.
The inn sits on two plots and consists of a 1905 three story house cottage house and adjacent row of twelve rooms. Main house contains generous owners appartment, two king suites upstairs and basement. Cottage house contains two king rooms and one king suite. There is an outdoor swimming pool and porch in front of the main house which is a big summer attraction.
Listed on on B&B.com, Tripadvisor, Google places, Yelp, Arkansas.com, Hot Springs.org and Lonely Planet Guide. The inn is also a member of the Bed and Breakfast association of Arkansas.
Currently the inn is ranked #1 overall business in Hot Springs on Yelp and #6 on tripadvisor in the bed and breakfast/inns category. These rankings result in good volume of business coming through these sites.
All sales are direct with no sales commission paid. The currently used property management software has a booking engine compatible with GDS online reservation system and bed and breakfast.com online reservations. Significant revenue upside could be got from managing direct and online sales.
Since 2009, all guest rooms have new carpet, beds, a/c, flatscreens, refrigerators and many other furniture upgrades. Upgrades have also been made to electrics and infrastructure. All inventory and fixtures are included except those in the owners appartment.
