Over $900 million sold representing 300+ transactions in 29 years!
Over the past 30 years, I have uniquely acted as an intermediary between buyers and sellers of operations in the convenience services industry. Similar to arbitration, I’m asked from both sides to put together a fair deal for both parties and to help figure out the most reasonable course to take in order to accomplish what they are looking to do. Sitting in the middle makes it faster and smoother to cut to the chase and end up with a win-win deal. Obviously, this business model works, which is why I have sold over 300 companies, transferring over $900 million in revenue to the buyers.
I’m tasked not only with helping to decide on final price and terms but also oversee the due diligence, contracts and transition of the assets and accounts. In working through the transaction from start to finish, I’m able to help eliminate many of the misunderstandings and pitfalls that can happen in an acquisition.
Here is a small sample of the many letters, emails and calls I have received from very satisfied operators over the years.
PARAMOUNT VENDING SOLUTIONS, POMPANO BEACH, FL
I've known Marc Rosset for many years, and when the family decided to sell our $10 million OCS and Micro Market division in Florida several years ago, Marc was the only broker we wanted to sell it for us. We were glad we made that choice. We received everything we were hoping for. Price, terms, conditions and even the rental of our building for the first year. If you are thinking of selling your company, you would be foolish to speak with anyone other than Marc.
Albert Miniaci, CEO
AVI FOODSYSTEMS, INC., WARREN, OH
AVI has completed several acquisitions using Marc’s firm. I find him honest and extremely knowledgeable about our industry.
John Payiavlas, Chairman of the Board
FRESH BREW GROUP-USA, HOUSTON, TX
Earlier this year (2022), we finally decided to sell our vending division, which was one the largest independent operations in Central U.S. Our roasting, tea and extract division is experiencing tremendous growth, and we felt it best to concentrate on our nationwide expansion of that division.
Marc Rosset, who had helped us purchase local competitors over the years, was the obvious choice to make the right deal for FBG. I am convinced that Marc got us the highest possible price and extended terms for our business. I absolutely recommend him to anyone in our industry who is considering a sale.
Al Ansari, Owner
FOX VENDING INC., BRIDGEVIEW, IL
I have known Marc for over 25 years. I consider him an excellent source if you are looking to purchase a competitor or if you just want to know what's really happening in our industry. We have appreciated him coming to us on potential deals in the Chicago area over the years. I highly recommend him.
James Fox, Owner
MARK’S DISTRIBUTING, CONWAY, AR
Marc did a great job selling my vending company. He knows the ins and outs, has good contacts, and represented my business very professionally. Very thankful to have used PVC, Inc.
Mark Benton, Owner
DINSMORE & SHOHL, LLP (LAW FIRM), 29 OFFICES NATIONWIDE
I have worked with Marc for years as legal counsel representing either the Buyer or Seller in deals that Marc has brokered. What has made my representation of my clients easy is that Marc has always worked out the financial details so well. My work is putting the deal in writing, not negotiating as it was already expertly completed. In a way, Marc cost me a lot in legal fees because he is so good. In hindsight, I am happy to have lost the fees.
John Barnes, Partner
LIME ROCK SPRINGS COMPANY (PEPSI FRANCHISE), DUBUQUE, IA
Marc’s depth of experience and insight into both the history and future of the vending industry was invaluable to us in making a decision for the best path forward. Marc convinced us to reconsider all our assumptions and take a hard look at our long-term goals. I feel that Marc saved us potentially another 15 years of struggling to make something of our vending business, only to determine that we were no further along than where we started. We are now able to focus on our other businesses and we feel Marc helped us make the best decision possible. Marc also helped us work through several intricacies that were somewhat unique to our transaction and had always been a great sounding board for any concerns or anxieties throughout the whole process.
Eric Gantz, Owner
VENDTEK WHOLESALE EQUIPMENT, WIXOM, MI
Marc Rosset, with Professional Vending Consultants, was everything we wanted in a broker. He was able to leverage our business customer list with updated equipment and technology to get the best price along with a smooth transition to close. Thank you, Marc!
Tom St. Germaine, Owner
PATTERSON VENDING, BASSETT, VA
We were very pleased with what Marc was able to get us and in no time. We are a pretty small company but Marc worked as hard for us as he does on his multi-million-dollar deals. He definitely knows what he is doing and has many connections. If you are serious about selling your business, he is the man that can do it. Thank you, Marc!
Shawn and Christy McGee, Owners
FAMILY VENDING COMPANY, CORAL SPRINGS, FL
I wanted to send you this letter of "Thanks" for your help in facilitating the sale of my company to Canteen, it has been nothing short of an incredible experience.
In my 35 years of owning the Family Vending Company, there were many times that I thought it might be better to sell my company than to continue dealing with the many distractions and worries that I was dealing with on a daily basis here in South Florida. The industry is changing rapidly and I believed it was really the best time to get out.
Your expertise and experience of selling Vending and OCS companies proved to be an enormous help to me throughout the process of the sale of my company. I was so satisfied with everything and I know that without you, I could not have received all that I did. There is no way that anyone should try and do this process without the aid of Marc Rosset!
Nowadays, I am enjoying my life like I never have before, and I just can't thank you enough.
ADOLP’S VENDING SERVICE, INC., DALLAS, TX
I wanted to write you and thank you for your help in the sale of my company Adolph’s Vending Service, Inc. The transition is going well, and I am sleeping better and worrying much less these days.
It was very pleasing to me that with your help, no one, including competitors, suppliers, employees or clients knew anything about the sale until it was completed. This confidentiality and your ability to protect it were invaluable.
Thanks again for your help on my deal.
REFRESHMENTS SERVICES, INC., INDIAN TRAIL, NC
I wanted to write to thank you for your help in the purchase of the Charlotte branch of one of our competitors. The deciding factor in our decision to purchase this operation was your ability to bring information on the value of the company to us. Your knowledge and expertise in the asset purchase arrangements that you have been involved in made this process proceed quickly and with minimal interruptions in our day-to-day business.
As an intermediary, your ability to negotiate the minor differences that normally would have caused most deals to go south was your key strength in making it happen.
Thanks again for your help on our deal.
Scott Vuncannon, President
I wanted to write this note to personally and publicly thank you for all your efforts in our acquisition of Deli Delights Food Service in Louisville.
As you know, Deli was a formidable and one of the biggest independent competitors in our market. For a number of years, the owners of Deli and I had spoken about some kind of business combination between us. But as is understandable, some degree of mistrust, that competitive atmosphere and both sides becoming realistic about price and terms, are very large obstacles to overcome.
I admit my surprise when you were able to get us both to agree to a Letter of Intent within 30 days. But that was just the beginning of showing me your expertise.
There were many issues and roadblocks that stood in the way of completing this transaction, but you obviously had the experience and the knowledge to find the solutions to them all. I know both owners firmly believe that this transaction would never have been completed without your involvement.
I am pleased to recommend to my many friends, associates and colleagues in our industry, that when the time comes for them to sell, or in thinking of acquiring a competitor, that they give you a call before they speak with anyone else. You complete what you start and are a master at keeping everyone’s emotions in check and making sure everyone stays focused.
