Small business is underappreciated and underserved.

Small business owners work hard. Very hard. They're good people who care deeply about their employees and the communities they live in.

 

We've spent two decades perfecting a unique process that's clear from start to finish in order to ensure your hard work is rewarded and your business carries on successfully.

President & Founder

Message From The Founder

I founded MidStreet over 20 years ago on a very simple premise: Lower-middle market businesses deserve a higher level of service when it comes time to sell.

Main street business brokers generally sell businesses with less than a million dollars in revenue. Businesses with revenues of $25 million or more are sold by Middle Market M&A firms. But if you're somewhere in the middle, where do you go?

I founded MidStreet 20 years ago on a very simple premise: Lower-middle market business deserve higher level of service when it comes to sell.

Main street business brokers generally sell businesses with less than a million dollars in revenue. Businesses with revenues of $25 or more million are sold by Middle Market M&A firms. But if you're somewhere in the middle, where do you go?

Companies with revenues between $1 million and $25 million are too large to be served properly by Business Brokers, but not quite large enough to be desirable to larger Middle Market M&A firms.

At MidStreet, we take your life's work seriously as you do. We strive to change the way small and midsize businesses are sold. From the emotional considerations to the financials, we are there with you every step of the way to ensure your business sale is a success. Selling your business is one of the biggest life decisions you'll ever make. We take seriously the trust you put in us to guide you through the process. 

We Sell MidStreet Businesses.

Not Middle Market.  Not Main Street.  Welcome to MidStreet.
