Each day at The Affordable Business Partner we are meeting new people and introducing others to business opportunities throughout Alberta everyday.

The results so far have been fantastic. Each day our inboxes gets a little busier and our phones ring a little more.

If you have a question on how we can help you find a business, or perhaps you would like to meet someone that may be interested in purchasing yours or your clients business, please let us know.
We wish you all the very best in business in 2019

Our client is a very successful entrepreneur that enjoys a history of building innovative and financially strong companies. He has now decided to sell this 2 year old very successful business and truly absentee business. Aside from the impressive financial strength of this business, this business was started in a very slow Calgary economy but because of the great planning by the owner and detail into delivering a quality family experience, the business continues to grow.
Since our client lives out of Province he initially spent a great amount of time designing a business that he could operate from afar with a minimum amount of time, effort and input required. He hired strong staff to handle the day to day operations, plus utilized state of the art software to keep in touch with the daily, weekly and monthly sale averages. New owners would have the option of operating the business as is, with a minimal amount of effort or take a hands on approach and reduce management expenses.
As mentioned our client has a track record in building successful and innovative business models that make sense. He now has decided to join forces with his family and enter into a new industry and business model which is the reasoning behind the sale.
True absentee Ownership
We have been selling businesses for many years, and have heard many definitions of the words absentee ownership. To be honest it is very rare to come across such a well operating business that provides so little effort to operate. Our client estimates that he invests 2-3 hours per week in total to operate this business. This will allow new the ownership to take over seamlessly and to understand the day to day operations at their own pace.
