About Us



Panama City Business Brokers, LLC through it affiliates (Destin Business Brokers, LLC and South Walton Business Brokers LLC) was established in 1999. The Company is focused on providing the exceptional service for entrepreneurs desiring to buy or sell their business.

Ted Perkins is the founder and Owner/Broker of Panama City Business Brokers, LLC since its inception. Prior to founding the Company, Ted as an business entrepreneur has founded/purchased and operated over 34 diversified businesses in his career with more than half of them in Florida for over thirty years. During that time has gained the knowledge and experience needed to assist and guide buyers and sellers from the beginning analysis and valuation to the final closing of a purchase and sale transaction. Ted’s longevity in Florida’s local panhandle market allows him to deliver his clients a keen sense of the flavor and growth that is occurring and how to position local businesses for success.

Ted's motivation eighteen years ago to enter the local business broker industry was due to the lack of a template step by step simple process that he personally experienced when selling one of his own businesses. Drawing on his business and entrepreneur experiences, Ted realized there had to be a better process to create a stress free win-win process for business buyers and business sellers. That experience allowed Ted to form Nationwide Business Brokers Corp. dba Destin Business Brokers, LLC which has grown to include Panama City Business Brokers and South Walton Business Brokers consistently been the premier leading Independent Business Brokerage along the Northwest Florida area from: Pensacola to Apalachicola and all areas in between.

Since that initial start, Ted’s company and his professional staff of five other licensed business broker associates, have represented thousands of buyers and sellers with hundreds of millions of dollars in transaction value. His exceptional success is due to his Mission Statement that he lives by every day:
