First Choice Business Brokers Drives Growth as a Top Franchise Opportunity

First Choice Business Brokers Drives Growth as a Top Franchise Opportunity

With more than 31 million small businesses in the U.S. – many owned by Baby Boomers looking to retire – First Choice Business Brokers serves as a modern-day matchmaker well versed in bringing buyers and sellers together for a perfect marriage. 

The First Choice franchise opportunity capitalizes on the thriving small-business market to help entrepreneurs achieve their dream of financial freedom in more ways than one.

“We help business owners find the right buyers for their business, and we help buyers find the right business opportunity for themselves,” says John Hewitt, founder and CEO of Loyalty Brands, the mega parent of First Choice Business Brokers. “There are only 4,000 business brokers in the country to sell 31 million businesses – so it’s a huge opportunity.” 

No one can spot opportunity better than Hewitt, a serial entrepreneur who founded Virginia Beach, Virginia-based Loyalty Brands in 2018. Along with First Choice, Loyalty’s synergistic franchise umbrella includes the full-service national tax preparation and business services provider ATAX; and Loyalty Networking, a marketing platform for professionals who want to grow their business and diversify their sources of revenue.

Backed by Loyalty Brands’ veteran leadership, First Choice stands primed for explosive franchise growth with a 25-year-plus proven track record and winning franchise blueprint as the global authority in business sales.

The company, launched in 1994, has grown into a family network of more than 100 brokers and agents nationwide and an Entrepreneur Franchise 500-ranked business opportunity. Under the direction of founders CEO Jeffrey D. Nyman and COO Linda Hentges-Nyman, First Choice leads the way as one of the largest business brokers in the country, with 32 franchise offices in 15 states, offering more than $7.5 billion in businesses listed for sale. 

First Choice provides franchise owners with a turnkey approach to help entrepreneurs find the perfect opportunity for their unique financial situation, and a pathway where owners can sell their businesses for full value.

“We give guidance in every facet of the operation,” explains Hewitt. “If owners need paperwork to make an offer, we have that paperwork. If buyers need to apply for a loan, we have banks set up to do SBA loans or non-SBA loans. Every step of the process is set up for them in advance.”

The brand’s bulletproof, recession-resistant business model delivers the most comprehensive initial and ongoing training available to franchisees and their agents. The First Choice franchise advantage includes:

  • Low initial investment
  • High, year-round income potential
  • Low overhead and no inventory
  • Daytime and weekday hours
  • World-class training and support
  • Business-to-business only
  • No previous experience required

Franchisees can count on the tools to succeed based on experience. As one of the nation’s premier business brokers, First Choice’s listings of franchise opportunities are among the most complete anywhere in the world. The brand also boasts the most detailed “living contracts” and forms in the industry based on thousands of closed business sales. Proprietary software houses and posts business listings and acts as an office administration hub to organize every aspect of the franchise business.

Small businesses remain the backbone of the economy. With the marketplace experiencing the most significant transition of business ownership in recent history, there is no better time to be a First Choice franchisee.
