The Empire Difference: Empire will provide a no-cost confidential market analysis of your business. If you decide to sell, there are no up-front fees. Empire collects its fee only when your business is sold.

Our principal, Michael W. Benson, founded an Information Technology company, and then ran it for ten years. Mr. Benson eventually sold the business, and the experience gave him insights regarding what is involved to being a business owner – and business seller.

For more than 20 years, Empire Business Associates has assisted business owners in northeast Ohio with the sales and purchases of companies. Our mergers & acquisitions and sales office is affiliated with Empire Business Brokers, an organization with locations nationwide.

We have worked with owners to successfully sell more than 120 businesses valued at more than $220 million.

While Empire does not specialize in the sale of any type of business or in any particular industry, we have significant expertise in the sale of companies in manufacturing, wholesale, industrial operations, distribution, and various services.
