Growth & expansion opportunities:

The Seller is a natural "Coach" that has been in the Auto business 30+ years, and looks forward to "coaching" the buyer in the "Art & Science" of the "pre-owned" auto sales business! This business model is extremely scalable and replicable. Growth can come by increasing the inventory and carrying more vehicles on the retail lot.. Also, this business model could easily be duplicated in many areas around the Triangle and the state. New owner could also increase “curb appeal” by touching up cosmetic factors on the lot such as better lighting and landscaping.

Competition is for eyeballs online, less so, by similar nearby businesses.
