If so, we can produce more qualified buyers and sell your existing franchise business at a higher price, better terms, in a shorter period of time.
I purchased an Anytime Fitness location using Franchise Clearly. I have to say from the initial discovery phase all the way to closing day every member of this team provided me a huge helping hand in securing the deal. In any business purchase, especially dealing with a SBA loan, you always feel like the deal could fall through at any moment. Franchise Clearly and all of their staff were always there to provide that reassurance that the deal would go through. When it came to time spent on the deal and cost there were no back and forth with a team of attorneys and this meant this saved on costs and time. After being part of several business acquisitions in my corporate career this was the easiest one to accomplish. I would do business with this skilled team again in a heartbeat and would recommend anyone considering selling their franchise to at least have a conversation with this team.
Thanks, Casey H. Walters
You, and your team, made this deal happen. The number we listed for versus the number we sold for was so remarkably close. Full transparency, you got me more money than if I were to list with another company. I REALLY want to re-iterate that the ANONYMOUS way you went about listing and selling all of my clubs was worth EVERY PENNY of your commission. I am so happy I was referred to you by “former franchisee", and I look forward to building and growing a new business with a new team, and having you list and sell them a few years down the road. By my calculation, we received more than a 4x multiplier on our internal EBITDA numbers, and from the information I gather with other franchisees, that is almost unheard of.
I look forward to working with you in the very near future, and I will continue to refer my friends to you as well!\
Wishing you all the best,

Jon Franz and Franchise Clearly came highly recommended by another Anytime Fitness franchisee who had used the firm to sell his club in Florida.
I retained Franchise Clearly to list my three Anytime Fitness clubs in the greater Savannah area. After approximately nine months we received an offer for the full listing price and we closed the sale two months later, Jon and his associates handled the entire process from appraising the business, finding the buyer, negotiating the terms, working with the buyer's bank and eventually coordinating the closing. Confidentiality was maintained throughout the sale process. I would highly recommend Franchise Clearly to anyone hoping to sell their business.

"It began as a simple email request for more information on a business that was listed for sale on the Franchise Clearly website. Charles Helms responded promptly and courteously and from there the relationship began. Charles was an outstanding partner from beginning to end and extremely patient with me as we navigated through all of the financials and the back and forth of buying a business. He did an excellent job of managing both sides of the table and made sure that all information request were followed up with on a timely and accurate basis. His professionalism and constant follow up made me feel highly valued and reassured me that I had made the right choice by reaching out to Franchise Clearly. Jon Franz was also fantastic to work with and as he shared his wealth of knowledge and experience to transaction to help make the process go smoothly. Both gentlemen were available day or night and were extremely diligent as to ensure that all timelines were met and all parties were satisfied. Jon has built a great company that values world class customer service and I could not have been more satisfied with my buying experience. Having people on his team like Charles make Franchise Clearly a great choice to help you buy or sell your business! I would without any hesitation highly recommend Jon and Charles and the Franchise Clearly team for all of your business buying or selling needs.

"Simply put, Jon Franz and Franchise Clearly are the best in the business.
Their proprietary system for properly valuing companies, finding the highest quality buyers, and closing the sale are like no one else.
I truly believe Franchise Clearly is the only sales organization that can achieve a company sale for the highest dollar amount.
It makes a seller rest easy knowing they are dealing with the best, and I couldn't imagine using any other company.
