How to analyze one location of a chain of businesses when the financials are all mixed up- How to buy a business

Byron wants to know how to understand what’s going on in one branch of a multi-branch business when there are no records kept breaking out sales by location.  Tough problem.

We’ve all seen multi-location businesses in most cities and towns.  What happens if you want to buy just one location but the owner is all mixed up with record keeping?

It actually happens all the time for different reasons.

You would think that the owner would want to know how each location is performing with respect to the rest.  Well they do, but that is because they have a perspective you do not.

Watch as I discuss one of my favourite solutions to this problem:
