08 Jan Acquiring Minds: Buying a Big $7m Trade School | Bob Boniface and Tyrel Sulzer Interview
Tyrel Sulzer & Bob Boniface bought a CDL school, a training business for aspiring truckers to get a commercial driver’s license. We explore whether trade schools as a category could be interesting businesses to buy. We discuss trucking as an industry. We also discuss: why Tyrel & Bob decided to do a traditional search fund; why each of them was committed to buying a blue collar business; whether to partner when searching, and what the partner dating process might look like; and, what British Columbia-native Tyrel would tell his compatriots about the opportunity for search in Canada.
