What is Business Brokerage?

Simply put, Business Brokers help entrepreneurs buy and sell businesses. Think of it like a Real Estate Broker, but instead of houses, we sell businesses. We list businesses and are paid a commission on the successful completion of a transaction.

Why Business Brokerage?

There are almost 40 million businesses across North America. According to a recent survey conducted by the International Business Brokerage Association, 50% of business owners expect to sell their business within the next 10 years. There are approximately 5 to 6 million businesses for sale at any time. Estimates from the Business Brokerage Press show that there are approximately 3,500 to 4,500 business brokers in Canada and the United States. That means that there is an estimated one business broker for every 1,600 businesses for sale.

Why Murphy Business?

As a franchisee of Murphy Business, you will benefit from multiple revenue streams, brand name recognition, access to our national Business Listing System, a comprehensive training program, ongoing training and support, operations manuals, standardized forms/documents, marketing and advertising support, and office/administrative support through our National Team Centre.

Murphy Business Franchise Investment Overview

The startup costs of opening a Murphy Business franchise are designed to be very reasonable. If you operate a home based office, or if you already have an office, and have standard office equipment such as a computer, printer/scanner/fax and telephone, the investment could be less.
