FranchiseUSA.Net (CIBB, Inc.)


Although we have earned an enviable reputation with regard to franchise acquisitions and sales, we offer a full range of services to buyers and sellers of all types of businesses. This includes valuation and marketing packages that facilitate acquisitions and sales transactions.

Our goal is to assist sellers in the preparation and marketing process to maximize the sale price of their business. Identifying hidden values in the business, building a strategic marketing plan, and discretely marketing the company to qualified buyers are all parts of the process. We take pride in managing these issues and educating all the parties involved to create a smooth transition of ownership.

For buyers, we conduct a thorough search of businesses through internal and external databases to identify and screen business opportunities that fit their criteria. Our affiliations with national and international business brokerage associations allow us to access target companies throughout the United States.
