We acquire and grow great food service businesses

What We’re Looking For…

Platform acquisitions are >3mm of EBITDA.  No minimums for accretive acquisitions.
Our primary focus is companies in the food & beverage space. We are interested in QSR, Manufacturing, Catering, Services, & Food Service Contracting opportunities.

Typically we like to see business that have at least 15 years under their belt, with 5 years of steady profitability.

We prefer to partner with motivated owners seeking a liquidity event for their business.  Our goal is to help these operators have an opportunity to capitalize on the wealth they have spent a lifetime working towards, while also creating a path of succession for their business.

All opportunities are specific to the Unites States only. More specifically, ideal partners are located on the eastern seaboard.

Ideally, our partners have a layer of management to help with the initial transition and subsequently stay on post-acquisition to help scale the company.

…talent means nothing, while experience, acquired in humility and with hard work, means everything.
