So You Want to Sell Your Franchise…

By Published On: July 28th, 2016

Is it time to retire and go live on a yacht in the Mediterranean just like you’ve always dreamed? That sounds great, but first you need to sell your franchised business. Selling your franchise is no easy feat. If you aren’t sure exactly where to begin, don’t worry! The AAFD in partnership with BizBuySell is here to help! BizBuySell is the largest online marketplace for selling and buying businesses, but before you list your business, we strongly recommend that you read BizBuySell’s Guide to Selling Your Small Business.

Normally, this 150-page digital book retails for $19.95, but you can get it for FREE with your AAFD membership. In this book Small Business Strategist Barbara Findlay Schenck answers your most pressing questions and lays out a roadmap for selling your business. The book covers things like:

  • How to prepare your business for sale
  • Whether to use a business sales broker
  • How to market your business
  • Negotiating the sale of your business
  • And more

This book will help you understand what to expect from the sales process and to get the best price possible for your franchise. Once you feel like you are ready, you can also use your AAFD membership to save 20% when you list your business on BizBuySell.

To download your free copy of Guide to Selling Your Small Business, visit the AAFD home page, click “Member Login” in the top right corner, and put in your username and password. If you need help, contact us for additional guidance.

Happy selling!
