The business and the real estate are two quite different deals. They might find one person to buy both, but it's very likely that they wont, and they should be glad to find a qualified buyer for just the business and be willing to lease the property to you, reserving the option to sell the building if they find a buyer for it.

I agree with Seattle Pioneer. They should be able to hold onto the building, paying the mortgage with what you pay them for lease. Once the business has become profitable for you and you have money in the bank, you can buy the building - you might even be able to get an SBA loan yourself at that point.
