Past Clients Talk About Terry...

Wayne Compton

Jiffy Stop

My journey into the convenience store industry is likely different than most people who have gotten into the business. My original vocation in the 1970’s was that of a CPA with Arthur Andersen & Company, a large accounting firm. However, I soon observed that my future as a CPA was not the course I wanted to pursue. If I wanted to build equity in tangible assets and be in control of my future, I needed to self-employed.

It was 38 years ago that I was able to purchase an interest in a client in the wholesale and retail fuel business. Like many at the time, we transitioned into salary operated convenience stores over the next several years. In 1993 I acquired 100% ownership and was able to continue growing the convenience store business into a successful and profitable chain of stores. In 2015 Terry Monroe and Bill Fecht inquired whether I wanted to sell my convenience store business. There were many issues to consider. They both are down to earth people who were able to discuss and understand all the pros and cons. After much internal deliberation and discussion with family members along with the guidance and advice from Terry and Bill, I concluded that the timing was right for my family and me to exit the convenience store industry.

Since I am an accountant by training, I was very cognizant of the business and tax ramifications presented by the sale of a business. Terry was able to work with me in helping to find the right buyer who was willing to accommodate my business and tax situation. During the process of working with the buyer of my stores, Terry was with me all of the way to help coach and prepare me what I should expect and how the process works. He was endlessly accessible by phone or email to respond to my questions or concerns.

I recommend Terry and his company, American Business Brokers & Advisors, to anyone who is considering exiting the convenience store industry. This industry is his specialty. His firm has many contacts. Their team members are knowledgeable and skilled working with buyers and sellers.

Are you an active and financially qualified buyer who is in the market to purchase multiple convenience stores?

Most of the convenience store chains we sell never reach the open market because we maintain a list of active convenience store buyers throughout the United States.

When we are engaged by a convenience store owner to market and sell their business, we routinely have several prospective buyers already in mind who meet the criteria of the stores we have for sale.

By letting us know you are in the market to purchase convenience stores it will allow us to give you “first notice” of what is available in your market and will help us to only present you with stores that meet your business objectives.
