Buying a Business in the Smoky Mountains

The main purpose of Bizitude is to help buyers and sellers connect. As a Business Advisor, I help buyers buy and sellers sell. In addition to established business opportunities, we can also show you certain franchise opportunities. On this "Biz Buy" webpage, we are speaking to the buyer, but the seller will surely gain good insights into how we help potential buyers in the business search and purchase process. 

Local, Franchise, & Internet Business Opportunities

We invite you to browse through our extensive (yet incomplete) list of business concepts. Select a concept you'd like to learn more about and get in touch with us. Business opportunities may be established brick & mortar local businesses, franchise start-up or even Internet related opportunities. A particular concept may or may not be available at the time of your inquiry, however, we are relentless in our search and very persuasive when we have a good buyer at hand! Are you a good buyer? 

 

Let us guide you through the selection process. You may have dreamed of having your own restaurant for instance, but maybe you're better suited to provide services in another area, or maybe you'll have more fun running an RV Park! We don't want to change your mind, we want to expand your options!

Please do not delay, get in touch with us today using our Contact form at the bottom of this webpage. 

These business opportunities are subject to change at any moment.

Biz Buy:  8 Steps to Business Ownership
An invitation to work with us, Transworld Business Advisors

Buying a business is one of the biggest life decisions you will ever have to make. It can be a long and laborious process, or it can be a relatively simple transaction if you do your research, get the right advice and cover all the basics. We've created this grid to help you see what the buying process looks like from our perspective and involvement. Our goal is to make the complex process of buying a business a little easier on everyone, but at the same time; more structured and informed. We invite you to work with us. 

 

Bizitude is managed by me, Sheila Hansen, a Transworld Business Advisor/Broker working with the Knoxville/Sevier County, TN, Transworld team. I would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you personally on the essentials of selling or buying a business, valuing a business, and the process itself. You may call me at our offices anytime or use the Contact form at the bottom of this page.  Thank you.

1. Take Charge

Ready to buy a business? The process begins as we help find and acquire the right business for you.  Your dream business!

Any great endeavor begins with a decision to act.

Take charge. Make contact. (Contact form below)

5. Offer

Time to buy! We assist in negotiations, present your offer, act as 'keep it going smoothly' agent, and get us to the accepted offer stage.

2. Evaluation

Meet with us in person, via phone or online video. We will gather information about your life experiences, financial capabilities, and personal goals. Then we will start your search using our considerable resources.

6. Due Diligence

Buyer inspects Seller's representations as accurate. We will share options on financing and coordinate with legal and accounting professionals. 

3. Education

Get comfortable by learning how to search for businesses, read Business Listing Information sheets, understand basic valuation concepts, and review our available opportunities.

7. Closing

Final preparations for lease assignments, utility transfers, financing, merchant accounts, inventory counts, and other last minute preparations to ensure a smooth transfer. 

4. Search

We will help you find your dream business, aid you in signing confidentiality disclosures, provide detailed information on the chosen business, and set up showings with the seller. 

8. Post Closing

Transitional training and knowledge transfer from Seller to Buyer is completed. Your Advisor is on hand to answer any questions you may have.

Congratulations!

Advantages of using a business advisor / franchise consultant to guide you through your purchasing decisions and negotiations
Leverage the inside knowledge of our consultant services- which can save you months of research. We save you time, money, and unnecessary aggravation. We teach you what sellers and franchisors are looking for in a candidate, how to investigate the business or franchise, what questions to ask, and more. We have a system to help guide you through the selection process. When you work with us, you have our undivided attention and we have your best interests at heart. If you go directly to the seller or franchisor, naturally, they want you to focus on only them, and you may miss important details that our systems uncover for you. We have many resources to further assist you through the buying process, including 3rd party funding options, franchise or transactions lawyers, and important local resources. Call us.

For all the Smoky Mountain Dreamers 

We are Smoky Mountain Dreamers. A family of vacationing tourists who fell in love with the area after staying in one of these beautiful cabins (ours was called 'A Touch of Class'). So... we did our due diligence and found our little dream business, a house in the countryside, and then moved here. The sign in our back window said "Tennessee or Bust!" Our dream came true. We love it here, we succeeded, and now we want to help other dreamers find their dream business in the Smoky Mountains!

 

I asked a lifelong local once what he was going to do now that he's retired, move further South or? He said, "why would I move when I live in the best place in the world?" What's not to love? Beautiful scenery, a vast playland for nature lovers and fun lovers.

 

Dolly Parton was born in Sevierville, Tennessee, she's our national treasure. Our beautiful Smoky Mountain region is home to Dollywood, fabulous hotels and resorts, amazing attractions, Southern food, happy hospitality, and good people. Come and join us!
