I’ve been working in the propane industry for many years and have seen quite a bit in my career. I’ve worked with propane business owners who couldn’t wait to sell their company and others who were full of mixed emotions. The truth is, selling your propane business, especially if it’s been in your family for decades, will cause a variety of feelings.
Leaving your employees and propane customers, many who have become more like family, can be difficult. Anyone who tells you it’s easy to leave long-term industry colleagues, stellar employees and satisfied clients aren’t really being truthful.
There are propane business owners out there now who know it’s the right time to look into selling their propane company. Maybe their children have no interest in continuing the family business. Perhaps they realize the importance of succession planning but simply have no one to turn the reigns over to. In certain instances some propane owners feel their service area is too far off the beaten path to even attract a buyer.
Regardless of why an owner feels they need to sell their propane business—no matter the size or location—we’re here to help. ThompsonGas takes great pride in ensuring the propane companies we acquire are in good hands, focusing not only on the business owner but also on the future of the current employees and overall satisfaction of the client base.
Retiring from your propane business doesn’t have to be a stressful when you choose to sell to a dedicated, sincere and trustworthy company like ThompsonGas.
