You Didn't Build Your Business For Recognition

But you deserve it. Small businesses make up 99% of all companies in the United States. They employ nearly half of our nation's workforce and generate massive resources for their communities. But when you turn on the television or the radio, everyone focuses on the giants: Apple, Google, Walmart, Ford - you name it.

At MidStreet, we believe small business is misunderstood, under appreciated, and underserved. We believe business owners are hard-working, good people who care deeply about their communities and employees. We provide the best path to sell those companies to further this legacy of business ownership and support communities across our nation.

Message From The Founder

I founded MidStreet over 15 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 normally sold by Middle Market M&A firms. But if you're in the middle, where do you go?

I founded MidStreet over 15 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 normally sold by Middle Market M&A firms. But if you're in the middle, where do you go?

It's the companies between these two segments... companies with revenues between $1 million and $25 million that are too large to be served properly by Business Brokers, but not quite large enough to be desirable to large 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. Your success is our main goal. We pride ourselves on our client-centered mentality, because we understand that selling your business is one of the biggest life decisions you can make, we take seriously the trust you put in us to huide you through the process. We provide a better way to sell your business, because we believe business owners deserve better.

We Sell MidStreet Businesses.

While we strive to provide resources for all companies, we specialize in the sale of MidStreet businesses. A MidStreet business (also known as a lower-middle-market business) falls between the "Main Street" and "Middle Market" size category.
