We handle corporate sales involving multiple centers and individual center sales which often are life-changing events for both the seller and the buyer. No one matches buyers and sellers as well as we do. For sellers, we know how to analyze and market a center, prepare a professional presentation, maximize exposure to likely buyers, find the right buyer, obtain the right price, structure the best terms and even soften the tax bite. For buyers, we make sure purchasing that center is the right move at the right time. We often assist the purchaser in securing financing, obtaining liquor license transfers and avoiding potential pitfalls unique to this business. Because we have handled so many transactions, we know how to overcome obstacles and objections and get deals closed.
With our extensive knowledge of the industry and the world’s largest data base of bowling center sales, we can accurately predict what buyers in the real world will pay for a particular center.
