We perform due diligence assignments on behalf of our clients for target acquisitions as well as strategic partners. We pay particular attention to the senior management teams and their ability to interact with each other and drive the business forward.
Finding the right local partner is essential to a long-term business relationship. We always work with franchisers who are highly supportive of their overseas franchisees to ensure they have a profitable business model. We look for local partners that have the operating experience, real estate know-how, human resource capabilities, integrity and passion for the concepts they are franchising. We have an unparalleled network of food service and non-F&B retail operating groups we can approach with new concept ideas we believe will fit well into their brand portfolios.
Market Entry Strategies
We provide full market entry support in China and key Asia Pacific markets, specifically to companies in the hospitality and franchising industry. We will do everything from Business Plan development to opening the doors of company-owned restaurants as well as introducing strategic partners.
Our M&A advisory teams work with private equity groups, global consulting firms and leading industry players. We have been involved in over 50 transactions during the past 8 years valued at more than $1Billion.
Supply Chain Management
We view supply chain as absolutely critical to long term success and we do not represent any retail concepts where sourcing key ingredients and/or equipment is prohibitive cost wise and leads to poor store level economics. We always recommend flexibility to ensure that a concept can be scaled in a realistic time frame and is profitable to the franchisee. In many cases, we assist both the franchiser and franchisee with supply chain challenges when requested.
Construction & Operations
We introduce all key purveyors to support the building and operations of a company-owned store in priority markets, including but not limited to legal and accounting services, general contractors, food distributors, kitchen equipment suppliers, local marketing services companies and real estate brokers. We also suggest proven methods in each market to recruit key operations staff.

Partner with unique brands with our help.
We search the world for brands that consumers are passionate about. Brands with a special edge that resonate with their customers – great design, impactful packaging, superior products, or best in class service. They are innovators and disruptors. The current size of their company is less important than their growth trends. These are the brands of the future creating new categories or innovating in existing ones. Think fried chicken, pizza or fitness are boring categories then think again. Is your market in need of a natural & healthy food brand? How about a London Creperie or a Coffee Bar from Naples? We offer everything from American Craft Beer Taverns to Tuscany Truffle Bars.Schedule a Consultation
