Business Description :

Outstanding Ford dealership opportunity located in beautiful Northern Michigan is available for immediate sale.  This opportunity is ideal for first-time owners, dealers looking to add-on or diversify their existing brand portfolios, or for buyers looking to enjoy a smaller market store and higher quality of life.   Located in a picturesque market, this community features year-round attractions from boating and golf activities in the summer to skiing and snowmobiling in the winter.  And the Ford dealership business opportunity is very attractive:

  • Established -- a seven-decade old successfully-owned family business.
  • Profitable  -- a four year average cash flow of $350,000.
  • Diversified -- offering includes an on-site self storage business.
  • Facility -- an updated, image-compliant facility is included in the offer price. 
"Built Ford Proud" is one the strongest, most revered, and powerful automotive brands in the world and features a full line-up of stylish crossovers (Explorer), purposeful sport utilities (Bronco), iconic muscle cars (Mustang), and the best selling vehicle in the USA for over 4 decades (F-150).  In addition, Ford has aggressive plans underway to launch a stable of world-class electric vehicles starting with the just launched Mustang Mach-E.   Ford has historically been and continues to be one of the most sought-after franchises in the industry.

During 2020 (through November) this dealership generated almost $5 million in top-line revenue, delivered $377,000 in bottom line cash flow, and held a market leading 25.7% share of industry.   After many years of successful operation, the present owners are seeking to retire and identify a new owner to take their family business to the next level.   
FINANCING AVAILABLE.  This business has been lender pre-qualified for the business and real estate for up to 90% financing (for 25 years) to qualified candidates subject to full underwriting.  See term sheet for additional details.
