Benchmark Business Brokers

Benchmark Business Brokers is a registered Louisiana service mark owned by Victus 1, Inc. Benchmark stands for and values confidentiality, integrity, transparency and trust when working with buyers and sellers.

We focus on “getting deals done” that are “win-wins” for both buyer and seller. We will “walk you through” the buying and selling process with expedient, professional and personal service. Our process is well-proven and tightly controlled to protect the confidentiality of our sellers and buyers.

Marc Able, company President, has been acquiring, selling and franchising businesses since 1999. An owner of 16 different businesses during his 29 year professional career, he has worked with public companies as well as privately held and "mom and pop" companies. Specializing in privately-held companies, Benchmark’s parent company, Victus 1, Inc. has been providing marketing, operations, human resources and franchising consulting for more than 17 years.

Benchmark is a more progressive broker than others and usually can offer more creative ways to get deals done.
