I grew up in the food business, my parents owned two very successful restaurants and I remember working (or a least thinking I was) in them from a very early age.
All through school I knew I wanted to go in to the hospitality industry and the day that I started at college could not come quick enough. I spent an enjoyable three years learning my trade and left college to join my parents in their second restaurant.
In 1992 my parents decided that the time was right for them to sell up and I felt it was also the right time for me to go out on my own.
In 1993 I opened my first Cafe called “Hogarth’s” and that is really where it all began. Since then I have built up and sold nine food businesses and loved every minute (well most of it) and learnt a lot about how the sale process works.
I love the food industry and really wanted to crack double digits and open shop number ten, unfortunately the two things that I value the most in my life, my marriage and my health probably would not have lasted so I called it a day.
I always felt that there was a better way to sell cafes and food businesses and that is where GSE and the “Six Steps to Sale” program have come from.
I am now using the experience I gained selling all those businesses to help others to do the same. It works well for me as I am still involved in the industry and it helps my clients by them avoiding some of the mistakes that I made when selling my first couple of cafes – Win Win!
I would love the opportunity to show you more about how this approach can help you to sell your business for the price that you want and on your terms.
