Selling a Business with the Cape Girardeau, Missouri Murphy Business Professionals

Murphy Business adheres to the highest professional standards when helping you sell a business. This is something you just can't get with many neighborhood real estate and business sales firms.

When choosing the Cape Girardeau Murphy Business Broker office, you will have a professional partner represent you through the entire process and answers all of your questions on how to sell a business.

Ten things a business owner might do after selling his/her business:

  • Golf: Golfers will enjoy the rolling hills of Dalhousie Golf Club, Bent Creek, Cape Country Club, Kimbeland Country Club, Jaycee Municipal Golf course and more.
  • Shop: The region offers shoppers their choice of big-box stores like Lowe’s, Sam’s Club, Target and TJ Maxx as well as small boutique and antique shops. If an outlet mall is more your style, Sikeston is just a short drive down Highway 55.
  • Dine: You’re in luck. It doesn’t matter whether your tastes run from the elegant to the casual, from exotic cuisine to comfort food, or from major national chain restaurants to local hole-in-the-wall specialties, with more than 250 restaurants in Cape Girardeau alone you’re never far from great food.
  • Fish: World-class rainbow trout fishing at a number of natural and agency-stocked trout streams. Championship bass fishing in hundreds of square miles of lakes. Bluegill fishing with the grandkids at the pond. From cane poles to Bass Pro, Missouri is a fisherman’s paradise.
  • Hunt: From deer to turkey to waterfowl to small game, hunting in Southeast Missouri has long been a tradition for a great number of our residents and visitors.
  • Travel: Fly directly out of the Cape Girardeau Regional Airport or start your trip with a short drive to St. Louis or Memphis. Traveling the world in any direction is easy when you live in the center of the United States.
  • Volunteer: As the largest city between St. Louis and Memphis, Cape Girardeau has innumerable opportunities for volunteerism. Many national and international charities have offices in Cape Girardeau and are always welcoming new volunteers.
  • Learn: Learning is fun at any age. Take a class through the Career and Technology Center, the Community College or Southeast Missouri State University.
  • Arts and Entertainment: Southeast Missouri has a vibrant and active arts community. The River Campus of Southeast Missouri State University offers world-class visual and performing arts entertainment with traveling and local performers. Local art galleries and the Arts Council sponsor several art showings each month and the local music scene can’t be beaten.
  • Exercise: Cape has an ever-expanding system of walking and cycling trails. If you prefer a less laid-back adventure, there are several State Parks within an hour of Cape Girardeau that offer some of the most scenic hiking, cycling, and boating opportunities in the Midwest.
