 Successful Bozeman BPW Member-Owned Business for Sale

Bozeman BPW member Johanna Lebeau is selling her franchise business:

Mark your calendar for our next estate sale in Bozeman on Saturday November 17!


The Caring Transitions of Bozeman Franchise Unit is for SALE!

I have found this business to be personally rewarding in many ways, including financially. Despite the business’ success, for personal reasons, I must make a transition in my own life to focus more on my family. The time has come to pass on the reigns of this opportunity to someone who is ready to make a difference in their life and the lives of others.
Demand for Caring Transitions’ services will continue to grow as Bozeman’s elderly population increases. Baby boomers are beginning to reach retirement age, which means more potential clients will be entering the market for Caring Transitions’ services in the coming years.

I have put my heart and soul into developing and growing this business. Whoever takes it over will inherit a substantial following of loyal supporters. We are consistently at “capacity” in terms of workload, meaning that under the right leadership there is still plenty of room for growth.

Caring Transitions is the complete solution for older adults and their families who are downsizing or relocating. We offer relocation, downsizing, estate sales, online auctions, and more. Life is full of transitions, and this business provides the opportunity to aid those around you through some of their most difficult times.

Have you ever thought about owning a business that is rewarding, interesting, fun, and profitable? After having been developed and grown over five years, Caring Transitions of Bozeman is now FOR SALE.

For more information on this incredible opportunity please contact me at:
Johanne Lebeau
Owner at Caring Transitions of Bozeman
In the mean time, we are open for business and we will stay open until I find a new owner.
Again, mark your calendar for our next estate sale in Bozeman on Saturday November 17!
