Support & Training: The owner is willing to stay on for a reasonable time after a sale to ensure a smooth transition of the business operations and customer relationships. Four weeks transition training is included in the asking price and the seller is negotiable for staying on longer for additional transition support if needed by a buyer with mutually agreeable, market rate hourly compensation.
