What We Do


Here at The 86 Group, our passion is helping small to medium-sized business owners achieve their goals. No matter if the goal is to improve your business, expand and grow, or to exit, we cover all areas of business strategy with expertise.

While entrepreneurs are keenly aware of areas of opportunity and improvement that exist within their business, we understand that they often just don’t have the time, manpower, or a clear path to the best solution. That’s where we come in, rolling up our shirt sleeves to help you solve your business challenges and achieve your dreams with our real-world solutions.

The 86 Group came recommended from a friend, and now I see why – from the initial meeting to the completion of our project they were great to work with.  I would also recommend them to my friends.

I worked personally with Cory Strickland over the past 6 years. I’ve hired them multiple times and will continue to use them.

Great experience. We originally hired 86 for a business valuation, then hired them to sell our business. They were very professional and assisted us throughout every aspect of the process.
