EMPLOYEES TAKE OVER OWNERSHIP

Employees are increasingly becoming business owners as the sales of small businesses rise. Sales are up 60% since 2102, as retiring baby boomers fuel the surge, according to BIZBUYSELL.com.  Often selling to employees makes the transaction easier. These former employees most  likely were general managers, operating personnel or foremen who  worked for the company many years.
