Viking was founded in Charlotte, NC in 1996 and now has 12 offices strategically located throughout the Southeast – Tampa, Charleston, Greenville, Asheville, Raleigh, Cornelius, Richmond, Knoxville, Nashville, Atlanta, and Houston. Our team of professionals have successfully sold over 800 businesses during the past 27 years, the most in our space and region. Our advisors and support teams (many of whom are prior business owner’s themselves) are experts at supporting the sale and purchase of businesses between $1 million and $100 million in size.
The key elements to our process are: aggressively and confidentially marketing the business to the ideal buyers; handling, educating, and qualifying all buyers; creating a competitive bid process to maximize your price; and then managing the closing process to quickly consummate the transaction. This allows the business owner to continue operating their business at a high level – maintaining the value they have created over years of hard work.
When you work with Viking, you can rest assured that your business transaction is being handled professionally and appropriately. Viking takes your confidentiality seriously and has processes in place to ensure your business’ private information and financials are only shared with vetted, serious buyers who meet your approval. The Viking team closes 85% of the businesses we take to market, which is over 3x the national average.
We offer a complimentary Business Valuation to business owners so they can make an informed decision on where they are in their exit strategy. When the business owner is ready to sell their business, Viking handles every detail of the transaction, all the way through closing and beyond.
