We’re a partner for business

Every year small, successful businesses close their doors because they can’t find a buyer, and every year, potential small business buyers become discouraged by all the details involved in buying. We want to help change that. We’re here to help both buyers and sellers succeed in continuing the legacy of great American small businesses.

We’re passionate about small businesses. They help local communities, keep money in local economies, and create opportunities in local markets.”

–Jeremy Foster

Main Street Partners works with both buyers and sellers, providing a structure and environment for seamless transition of ownership. We reinvest alongside the buyer so that sellers know their business is in good hands and buyers know they’re buying a healthy company. We all want the business to succeed, and we partner with you over the long haul with ongoing support throughout the process.
