Mr. Atchison has financial, sale/marketing and general management skills. For 11 years prior to founding Sunbelt Business Brokers of Corona, he was the President and CEO of a manufacturing company which was a big money loser when he was hired to turn it around. Joe focused the Company’s efforts on new product development (five new patents issued), manufacturing, quality/efficiency (achieved ISO9001 and QS9000 certification) and a strong emphasis on sales, marketing and customer service. His enthusiastic leadership inspired the team, transforming the Company into the parent company’s strongest profit contributor. Due in part to Joe’s efforts, gross margins at the Company improved from 24% to a high of 52%.
Previously, Joe was the Vice-President of Finance/CFO of two publicly traded companies and helped to take a third company public. During his corporate career, Mr. Atchison was successful in selling a number of divisions, subsidiaries and stand-alone businesses. These successes motivated Joe to start Sunbelt Business Brokers of Corona. Sunbelt is the largest Business Brokerage Company in the world with over 250 offices in the United States and 17 foreign countries.
Mr. Atchison is also President of Atchison Advisory, Inc. which provides operational improvement consulting to under performing companies in an effort to help them to achieve their potential and thus be able to sell sooner and at a higher price. He was active with the Orange County Council of the AeA, serving on its Marketing/Sales Committee for ten years and as its Chair for six years.
Mr. Atchison started his career with Arthur Young & Co, and received a MBA – Finance from the University of Santa Clara. He is a Certified Business Intermediary (International Business Brokers Association), a Certified Business Broker (California Association of Business Brokers) and is a Certified Public Accountant - inactive (State of California).
txtRSVP is a SAAS tool that allows event planners and party hosts to harness the power and ubiquity of SMS messaging to facilitate custom, automated conversations with guests. As messaging becomes even more the norm tools like txtRSVP augment the event planner or party host’s ability to engage guests using a medium that is easy and comfortable to them.
The service is live and operating with new accounts generated daily. Over 250 new accounts have been generated in 2014, bring the total to over 1,040 since launch. Traffic and account generations are organic with only about $70 spent on marketing. Since launching the paid model we’ve seen over 15% of customers decide to pay during the free trial.
About the tool:
The structure of text messages provides a fluid way to capture information about each individual guest. Common information like meal preference or less typical things like special needs or allergies can easily be tied to a guest and referenced across multiple events. They can even ask fun tidbits like, “How did you meet the happy couple?” No card to fill out, no call to make, no post office trip.
All of the information gathered is summarized in an online dashboard and reconnecting with guests is as easy as sending updates and reminders about the event directly to their cell phone.
As planners and hosts build a list of their attendees across multiple events the tool can then be used to send invitations via text message.
We are not in a position to fund marketing or build relationships to distribute the product but would like to help with a quick and easy transition to a new buyer who can leverage what we’ve built in the market.

Brand new LA Fitness opened in 2007 and this juice and smoothie bar was built out from scratch with all high-end fixtures furniture and equipment at a purchase price of $140,000 for all the fees and rights to do business on the premises. Has 6 years left on lease, with 10 year options available at $1,250 per month. Ideal for family owned operation, which is the status currently, so no payroll costs. Minimal other expenses besides COGS @30% + Rent, as all utilities are included from within gym confines, no phone. It's an awe-inspiring gym. Seller comments that they are not open at all times of the gym, so this is an incomplete revenue picture. Gym hours are 5 a.m. to 12 a.m. M-F and 8-8 on Sat/Sun. 6% royalties forwarded to franchisor. Franchise transfer fee TBA, hopefully zero but will be disclosed upon accepted offer. Broker is not in possession of UFOC at this time. NDA is required for exact business address and to schedule an appointment.
