Recent Crowning Achievements
Buyer purchased a booming American Restaurant Franchise concept that serves up breakfast and lunch style cuisine. The franchise has a great reputation and has procedures in place for franchisees to follow. Each location seats on average 120 customers at one time and can be found in areas with large residential populations.
CNC machine shop business that focused on parts for the farming industry, mechanical industries and even made a few parts for military use. This transaction would help ensure even more profitability for the CNC business they were purchasing and the buyer’s existing business.
A strategic buyer purchased the business. Instead of spending the time, money and research to develop their own plant to help manufacture their own product lines, buying this business enabled them acquire the assets they needed along with the people, the processes, an additional customer base and a baseline of revenue.
Why We had a Bidding War: Built platform with systems in place, apps, proprietary processes and excellent books and records.
This business assists both for profit and nonprofit businesses set up their legal, corporate, operational and marketing structures and the business provides ongoing consulting. The business works with customers all over the country. The buyer had a background in corporate and main street business and liked the aspect that they would be helping people grow their businesses.
Why Buyers lined up: Residual income and a platform which could be expanded
This business handles computers for school systems and corporations. Buyer purchased the business because in addition to being an essential service for schools they felt they could expand the base of customers to other industries.
Why Private Equity Beat Down Our Door for a Smaller Deal like this:
Business manufactures and sells simple mobile phones specifically developed for senior citizens. The business also sells mobile phone service to the same customers. A private equity group purchased the business based on its growing customer base, rave product reviews and the operation with a platform allowing for easy expansion.
Under contract in 3 days during a pandemic…here is why? The area was booming and completely under developed along with great books and records and systems in place.
Excellent franchise focusing on residential, commercial and auto glass repair and installation. The seller developed the business as a way to make one of their industrial plazas more full and more attractive for buyers. Their operation and management team was so terrific that the business actually became a good source of income for them and continued to do so for the following owner who liked the operation and bought it even though the country was experiencing a pandemic shut down.
The buyer was super excited to purchase a commercial cleaning business owned by the same owner for over 30 years. A good portion of the staff had been working in the business for over 10 years servicing and cleaning the same buildings and all of the staff stayed on working for the next owner after the transition. New owner continues to run the business from their home, but decided to add new billing systems in place and also started marketing and gaining additional customers after the sale.
This business has independently branded kitchen equipment made mostly in Europe and they would sell these items online and on venues such as QVC. The buyer thought the entire product line was terrific and purchased the business with the intent to grow both online and in-store sales.
Large pizza restaurant serving up pizza and other Italian cuisine. The business was purchased during periods of shut downs in the state of Florida however the business was still doing an amazing delivery and take out business. The buyer had sold previous restaurants they owned and were looking to relocate to the Orlando area.
“I can only confirm all the raving reviews here for Crowne Atlantic. Jackie sold my 20-year old business very quickly, at full price and it was even a stock sale which is great. Jackie is very experienced, intelligent, organized, a very hard worker and most of all extremely pleasant to deal with. She fully understood my needs as a seller and defended my interests all along the smooth due diligence process. Look no further if you're looking for a business broker. Jackie immediately found numerous high-potential buyers and advised continuously on the best strategy to achieve maximum success. She's the best and I can't thank her enough.”From Peter Vander Stichele who sold www.cooksinnovations.com
“Crowne Atlantic recently sold my 38 year old commercial cleaning company. It went under contract in 1.5 days with a full price cash offer plus a full price back up cash offer and 10 people in line to see it. Crown has this amazing data base with pre-qualified buyers with the price range and the type of business they are looking for. It went completely smooth and was a pleasant experience. Crowne is a family operation and Jackie and Lee were very personable, friendly, professional, informed and connected. They did a great job interacting with both the buyer and seller side and keeping it peaceful. They have gourmet chocolates and herbal teas and a nice environment to meet with buyers. I have recommended Crowne Atlantic to many of my colleagues and associates who are my age and will be selling their companies in the near future -- I would not use anyone else. I'm off to the beach and retired! Thanks Jackie and Lee!”From Mark Freche of National Building Services https://nbscleaning.com
“We sold one of our businesses through Crowne Atlantic Properties just over a year ago. I must say, they are the only way to go. Jackie was extremely honest and forthcoming regarding time-frames, numbers, and expectations. I sell real estate for a living and understand the need to hire a professional to get the job done right. We had multiple offers within a few days and selected the one that made the most sense. I am very proud to not only call Crowne Atlantic Properties a fantastic business partner but since first calling them, a true friend and ally. Thank you for all the great encouragement and help.”From Jacob Hara Pioneer Real Estate
“Purchased a restaurant July 2014 in Orlando. Lee Ossin was my broker and was very helpful during the entire process. Communications between myself and seller were coordinated by Lee Ossin and sister (partner) Jackie Ossin in a timely manner. Lee and Jackie are experienced and helpful to any buyer of a business for the first time, I highly recommend using Crowne Atlantic Properties LLC for many reasons, they are competent, reliable and trustworthy.”From Greg Granda Shaker’s American Café http://shakerscafe.com/
“I highly recommend Jackie as a business broker. She is experienced, knowledgeable, thorough and solved many issues as they came up through the process. I was the Buyer and she represented an inexperienced Seller, but she was above board, kept lines of communications open, translated normal and market buyer expectations to the Seller during due diligence and guided the process through to closing. She is the complete package and I highly recommend her.”From Clay Mynard www.ColoSolutions.com
