Selling a Central Florida Retail or Hospitality Business is not like selling any other type of business out there. With half of your staff part-time, minimum wage and or tipped employees, you can't take the chance of letting anyone know you are ever thinking about selling. When word gets out that you are selling, most if not all of your best and most dependable employees start looking for new jobs. Only a rare few remain your best or dependable employees. You can't really blame them. They feel abandoned and unimportant to you and it's a common assumption that the new owners are going to "replace them anyway". So the bottom line is to let as few people as possible know your business is for sale. With the proliferation of social media, nothing stays secret for very long, especially if your business is listed anywhere on the internet. Take a second and google your business, the information whether good, bad or even true is out there. Disgruntled employees can really hurt you.
You defiantly do not want to list your business with a brokerage required to place all listings on the MLS. All residential real-estate brokerages that are a part of the MLS are required to post your listing. When you sell a house, yes, you want MLS exposure but not when you are selling a retail or hospitality industry business. Most business brokers will advertise your business on the internet with so much detail anyone reading the listing can figure out who you are. The pitfalls for letting an unlicensed person sell your business are so great, that only the very naïve business owner would ever cross that bridge.
