What’s involved in selling a pet care business?

Successfully navigating the complexities of selling a business in this industry requires the insight of a skilled and experienced broker. Without it, you may not capture all the value of your business or lose a deal over issues that could be remedied with an expert skilled in deal making.

As a pioneer and leader in dog daycare, boarding kennel and pet resort sales, we skillfully guide you every step of the way:

  • Determine Fair Market Value of your business and the total package (if real estate included)
  • Identify potential buyers - private or corporate
  • Create an exciting, professional “Presentation Package” showcasing your facility
  • Handle marketing in complete confidence from your staff, customers and community
  • Secure financially qualified buyers
  • Negotiate sales contracts
  • Coordinate tours, due diligence, escrow
  • Collaborate with attorneys, CPAs and other professionals involved
  • Resolve issues to ensure a profitable, successful closing

We also help you handle any unexpected issues that arise along with the personal and emotional aspects of the transaction:

  • Protect confidentiality until the sale is completed
  • Provide insight on how to announce the sale to your staff
  • Assist with community relations and PR
  • Consult with you to work through transition issues
  • Get it done right so you can rest assured that the closing process will be a seamless one
