If you are interested in starting a small Optical and Optometry business or related company, buying an established Optical and Optometry business or an existing Optical and Optometry franchise for sale near you or buying a Health Care related online business, can be one of the best ways to start your own small business. It is fairly easy to start a business in current times but making it profitable and keeping it profitable is not easy and only a small percentage of startups stay in business beyond five years and only a few reach consistent profitability. There are several advantages in buying an existing Optical and Optometry or Health Care related business with an established customer base when compared to starting a new Optical and Optometry company and it may also be easier to finance an existing business than to obtain financing for a new start-up, wherein the banker will want you to show assets and collateral along with a solid business plan, before even considering providing any financial assistance. This is no different than financing a vehicle or real estate with a small down payment rather than paying the full price but and the lender is happy to finance as long as the business is cash flow positive, instead of paying the full amount but only in case of buying a business, the amount can be so large that most people do not have the money to make an upfront purchase and even if they do, most small and large businesses are financed via debt or equity financing.

In many cases the company or product can be re-branded later or additional services can be added to existing business to acquire and expand market share but also to finance and even to go public, such as a recent example of an electric vehicle start-up that bank rolled their startup by acquiring a shell company and went public. Also, keep in mind that while starting a new Optical and Optometry company is not too hard, running a business is not easy and making it consistently profitable and growing it is another thing because a vast number of small business that are started will usually fail within first few years and a small number of them are consistently profitable.
