The secrets of a business broker



As Director of Business Development for Speedway SuperAmerica, I used the professional services of Terry Monroe, and American Business Brokers, to assist in securing new stores and the disposing of non-strategic assets.

Terry was responsible for bringing Speedway SuperAmerica a group of 14 stores in Ohio  that continues to be a very successful acquisition. Terry's vast knowledge of the Convenience Store business, expertise in buying/selling properties and tireless efforts made for a very smooth transaction from start to finish.

I would strongly recommend Terry and ABB to anyone in the industry with similar needs.

The staff and I would like to thank you for representing us in the selling of our convenience stores. Even though they were located in Texas, Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Kentucky and New York your expertise and professionalism was a great asset in finding the right buyer for our stores.

This was a difficult decision, but you gave us the encouragement and insight that this would be the best opportunity for us.

We appreciate all the communications of keeping us informed of all the act ivies through the process.

We all consider you a friend professional and personally.

When me and my family decided that it was time for us to exit the convenience store industry and sell our chain of 14 convenience stores we did not know where to turn. We heard a proposal from a company that had direct mailed us, but it didn’t seem like the right fit. Fortunately we heard about Terry and his company American Business Brokers through a referral from a friend of ours in the business. It was the best thing that ever happened to our business. Terry was deeply involved in every aspect of the transaction and managed the process from the beginning to the end. Not only did Terry and his company get the stores sold they also got us more money that we had thought we would get. I would highly recommend Terry Monroe and his company.

We have had an excellent working relationship with Terry Monroe and his company American Business Brokers. Because of Terry and his staff, we were able to put together some tough deals that have allowed us to not only divest of some under-performing stores, but free up capital dollars for some new builds in areas we were needing to expand into.  We appreciate your help and look forward to working on future deals with Terry and American Business Brokers.

I can’t thank Terry and his company American Business Brokers enough for helping me sell my chain of 11 convenience stores. The stores had been owned and operated by my family for many years and your assistance and guidance was invaluable in making the deal happen. All of your hard work was appreciated and I wish the best of fortune in the future.

Terry and his company American Business Brokers did an outstanding job for our company in helping us through the period of divesting of our convenience stores. His responsiveness and solution minded ideas were detrimental in the closing of deals that would not have happened without his input.

Terry and American Business Brokers handled the sale of my businesses and I was pleased with their attention to detail and being accessible when I needed to speak with them. I found them to be honest and represent my interest. I would recommend them to anyone who is anticipating selling their business.

Terry and me still talk about the challenges we faced and all of the issues that we had to deal with in order to get my chain of convenience stores sold. However, through his perseverance and willing to not give up we were able to put the deal together and most of all get it closed. I would recommend Terry and American Business Brokers if they really want to get a deal done and closed.

Terry I wanted to say thank you for all of your hard work and the time you spent helping to sell my travel plaza, convenience stores and jobbership. Thanks to you I am now able to enjoy a more laid back life style and the fruits of my many years of work. It has been a pleasure and an enjoyable experience working with you.

We started with over 20 convenience stores that I had accumulated scattered all over the State of Illinois. And we did the hard way. Selling them one and two at a time, but Terry and his staff at American Business Brokers got the job done and now I can truly say that I am out of the convenience store business.

My wife and I were referred to Terry and American Business Brokers by a very successful and long time friend in the convenience store business. We had owned our 4 stores for over 30 years and did not know what the process was or how one goes about selling their business. With Terry’s coaching and past business experience we were able to have the stores prepared and marketed in the correct way that ended in a successful sale of all the stores.  We really appreciated Terry’s help and would recommend him to anyone thinking of buying or selling a convenience store.

When Terry first approached me about selling one of my stores I was some what skeptical. But not only did he sell the store he came back and helped me sell the rest of my stores and jobbership, which enabled me to finally exit the industry completely. Terry works very diligent and professionally and gets the job done.
