One of the primary engines powering the Pacific Northwest economy are the privately held and family owned manufacturing plants, wholesale & distribution companies, retail businesses, technology firms, service companies, wineries & hospitality businesses, and professional practices that operate within the borders of Washington, Oregon, & Idaho. IBA has successfully negotiated and facilitated the sale over 4000 companies from these seven general industry categories since 1975. Our past transactions have included retail businesses in regional malls, marine oriented manufacturing plants in coastal communities, celebrity owned restaurants, cat oriented veterinary hospitals, software & E commerce businesses, franchises, promotional product companies, accounting practices, neighborhood florist shops, art galleries, and even a wholesale balloon distributor. The simple fact is that IBA in almost half a century of representing business owners has sold almost every type of business that participates in the Pacific Northwest economy. This transactional experience provides IBA’s professional business brokers with the market knowledge required to successfully complete transactions for our clients that accurately incorporate current market conditions and industry specific information.

Our food system is broken, an epidemic of diet-related disease has spread across the nation*. Now, more than ever, the most adversely affected are too busy to learn how to eat well, to prepare healthy meals, to shop, to make responsible food buying decisions. Educating the masses is cost-prohibitive, encouraging people to change their lifestyles is an uphill battle, and developing a critical mass of awareness is nearly impossible using traditional media venues. Making a difference requires a solution that is not only environmentally sustainable, but also financially viable. A way that encourages consumers to make the right choices, a model that engages them, one that takes the guesswork and inconvenience out of buying fresh, healthy, local, delicious, nutritious, and sustainable foods. It requires a supply orientated approach geared toward the ideals of the modern consumer. In the last 5 years we've seen junk food peddlers like McD's stock prices fall, while healthy alternatives like Chipotle thrive. Times are changing, and our model is poised to capitalize and even drive demand for healthier alternatives. The current landscape is begging for a tried and tested strategy, a catalyst for change, a way of doing business that can be replicated time and again, built on proven results. It's taken us over 15 years of research and 5 years of hard work to develop a model that does all of this. At our little corner market you'll find organic rotisserie chicken, hand-made artisan sausage crafted from humanely raised "clean" pork, freshly ground beef from 100% grass-fed cows, the best selection of fresh organic produce in town, and a whole lot more. We've responded to consumer suggestions and feedback, building a robust selection of the finest foods around with a loyal customer base that stands behind everything we've worked toward. Our social media following dwarfs many national brands and positions our market as the leading resource for all things food and farm related in our community. Our market represents a paradigm shift. Without relying on fuel purchases, cigarettes, alcohol, or junk food, we've turned a hidden little 1600 sq ft vacant space into a bustling natural foods convenience store boasting over $70k/mo in sales. We hope to find a buyer who share's our vision and has the capital required to expand and grow through franchising and strategic acquisitions. By doing so, we can change the way people shop for food, bringing back the old way of doing business with faces you recognize, people you know, and food that is locally produced. We're on board for the long haul, or willing to hand it all over to the right buyer. Are you ready to be the change you want to see in this world?
