Business Partnership - Business Franchise

Business Partnership is a national business brokerage, helping SME owners to grow and sell their businesses.


Business Partnership is a national business brokerage, helping SME owners - from corner shops to 100-strong engineering companies - to grow and sell their businesses.

Celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2019, it is amongst the longest-standing of the handful of national business sales agencies, reliably selling hundreds of businesses every year.

All sales are led and negotiated by an experienced Regional Partner - a business sale specialist local to the client – and we boast the strongest UK network of Regional Partners.

Franchise Overview

The only BFA full member business brokerage, Business Partnership is also amongst the UK’s most proven. Regional Partners operate independently within their own territory, whilst receiving and providing mutual support within the team. There is the added benefit of web-based IT & marketing. Between them, they reliably sell hundreds of businesses every year, hence the majority renew their franchise after five years. Some 60% of current Regional Partners have been with us for more than five years and many are in their 3rd or 4th term.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

  • Franchisees immerse themselves in the local business community, meeting owners, professional advisors and trade bodies. Assessing businesses is fascinating work, as is preparing them for market, negotiating sales and ensuring they conclude successfully.
  • Many clients are selling to retire and securing a good price for them to retire happily, is immensely rewarding.
  • Most partners are home based and enjoy an enviably healthy work/life balance, whilst earning well.
  • As you build your reputation, backed by our brand, you become “the” local professional for business sales and your reputation will win business.
