About Link Business Brokerage
The ultimate connection between business owners who are ready to maximize the sale of their small to mid-sized businesses are entrepreneurs who are looking for an established business to buy. Link Business Brokerage has helped thousands of clients make a smooth transition with a minimum of fuss.
Now you can own a Link Business franchise at exactly the right time. Most Baby boomers are at the age where they are ready to retire and selling their companies like never before, which is causing a huge spike for us. That is why we are excited to add new franchisees to our already impressive network of professionals.
Values & History
Founded in 1996 in New Zealand by founder and CEO Aaron Torensen, the business thrived as a business brokerage, and a year later Ron Hottes opened the first office in the United States and transitioned his aspect of the business to being the first Link franchise in 2013. Now he is the chief consultant for new franchisees around the world.
One of Link's core principles is to always do business ethically. Built on the foundation of people who care and want to provide genuine good service to their clients, Link operates with a strong sense of high morality while helping our clients retire well or begin their new journey into a business operation without having been manipulated into making a bad purchase.
Over the past five years, the business broker business has exceeded a billion dollars as an industry, seeing growth of 2.8% and trending upwards.
Over the next five years, approximately 18 million businesses will be available for sale - a huge explosion. This is based on a report in 2018 in Ibis World, that 80 million baby boomers will retire in the USA alone and want to properly exit from their businesses by selling rather than closing them for nothing.
With thirty years of experienced leaders on our staff, we are already positioned internationally. Our reputation has been secured by winning the REINZ Award for Excellence in 2016-2017 and the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 for 2019. We have never been stronger or more ready to capitalize on an unprecedented amount of profit potential.
