Selling your business
is a pretty big deal.

Selling a hospitality business is not the same as selling other types of businesses.

Whilst there are parts of the transaction that are standard there are also a lot of differences when selling cafes, restaurants, bars and takeaways

Don’t underestimate the advantage of working alongside a specialist in your industry. Benefit from working along an experienced hospitality professional that have sold their own businesses as well as many others for their clients.

We are focussed just on hospitality and we love the industry, if you need any advice about selling a cafe, restaurant or takeaway then feel free to get in touch.

No more added stress
no more lost time.

Worried about how to cope with the added stress of dealing with the business sale?

It took me my first 2-3 sales to work it out but I have learnt that the sale process is all about preparation. I have developed checklists and templates as part of my process that makes this much quicker and will save you a lot of time.

Having everything prepared will mean that you can provide information to interested buyers quickly which will take lot of stress out of the process for you and will keep the buyer moving forward.

My system and approach is all about making things as easy as possible for you.

What would even a 20% increase in the value of your business mean to you?

It is a known fact that a structured plan to exit your business can increase the value by more than 50% and in some cases as much as 100%.

My system uses the principles of Exit Planning and applies them practically to the hospitality industry to allow business owners to implement plans quickly without adding too much to the working week.

Meet Paul, Director, Senior Consultant and Hospitality Broker.

Hello, I am Paul Leach and I am the director of GSE Business Consultants who are Specialist Cafe Consultants and Brokers based in Sydney and Canberra. Having sold nine of my own food businesses over the last 24 years I have learnt a thing or two about how the sale process works. I have sold most of my businesses myself and a couple through a broker so I have seen the pros and cons of both methods first hand.

At GSE we use our specific industry experience to help cafe owners to grow, run and sell their businesses. We run a program called Six Steps To Sale which is designed to help prepare cafes (and their owners) for sale. This step by step process ensures that the business will sell for the right price and at the right time. We can work with you on a full brokerage basis to help you to prepare and sell your cafe. Our coaching and consulting services support you with developing your business to be as profitable as possible without it taking over your life. No matter what stage of your café journey you are at we can tailor a solution for you, with more than 25 years industry experience there are not many situations that we have not dealt with.

I grew up in the food business, my parents owned two very successful restaurants and I remember working (or a least thinking I was) in them from a very early age.

All through school I knew I wanted to go in to the hospitality industry and the day that I started at college could not come quick enough. I spent an enjoyable three years learning my trade and left college to join my parents in their second restaurant.

In 1992 my parents decided that the time was right for them to sell up and I felt it was also the right time for me to go out on my own.

In 1993 I opened my first Cafe called “Hogarth’s” and that is really where it all began. Since then I have built up and sold nine food businesses and loved every minute (well most of it) and learnt a lot about how the sale process works.

I love the food industry and really wanted to crack double digits and open shop number ten, unfortunately the two things that I value the most in my life, my marriage and my health probably would not have lasted so I called it a day.

I always felt that there was a better way to sell cafes and food businesses and that is where GSE and the “Six Steps to Sale” program have come from.

I am now using the experience I gained selling all those businesses to help others to do the same. It works well for me as I am still involved in the industry and it helps my clients by them avoiding some of the mistakes that I made when selling my first couple of cafes – Win Win!

I would love the opportunity to show you more about how this approach can help you to sell your business for the price that you want and on your terms.

If you are looking for a Business Broker that has walked the walk and understands the industry as well as your situation then I would love to here from you.
