Unique networking group for prospective business buyers/sellers

Like to say thanks to a guy down in the Akron area who has created a unique, warm and welcoming business networking group. Ken Thompson is the center of the group he calls the Pancake Pacers.

Ken masterminds a group of runners and/or folks in the area who are looking to buy a business. Each month he invites people to take a run on the trails in Peninsula and then meet for breakfast at Bob's Big Boy in Stow. Running is optional, so if you're interested in finding a business--or just meeting some fellow business travelers, join the group for breakfast at 8:15 a.m. this December 18 (running starts at Peninsula trailhead at 7 am).

Ken sends a chatty email each month to remind everyone of the date and share news about everyone's progress in their search to buy or progress in their business after they buy. It's a personal and genuine group. Wish I could make it more often.
