We believe we are New Zealand's longest established business brokerage, selling businesses since 1972.

We love Food & Wine! And we love supporting the Food & Beverage industry. And we are experts in this sector. Over the last 52 years we have successfully sold thousands and thousands of these great businesses.

Support the industry yes we do. We are proud of our affiliation over the last 22 years with the Restaurant Association in sponsoring a category in the Lewishams Awards, currently this being The Outstanding Producer category. More recently we have also committed to being a sponsor for the Cuisine Awards and we are proud to share that we now sponsor The Emerging New Talent for an up and coming new Chef.

Through the tough times and through the good times we stand by this industry.

In 2019 Company Sales & Acquisitions a business brokerage established in 1989 merged with Clyth MacLeod Business Sales. This was a synergistic move for us, we combined the 30 years history and expertise of CSA with that of the 47 years of CML and this has now allowed us to focus on businesses of all types and size and we enjoy the successes we are accomplishing. on larger transactions.

Our three divisions are; Food & Beverage, General Business Sales selling businesses of all types under $1 million in value and Company Sales & Acquisitions, businesses $1 million to $20 million.

Important to us is our commitment to you to strive to retain confidentiality on your business. Whilst we agree there may be some businesses that having their name and identity out in the market place could be advantageous, generally we don't recommend this. Your staff, customers and competitors knowing you are for sale may well put pressure on you to sell faster and this may not necessarily help you achieve your desired price for the business.

With a proven track record of service to buyers and sellers of businesses having SOLD circa 9,000 businesses, let us help you realise you future desire.
