Have investors soured on small restaurant chains?

Jeff Brock, managing partner with Hargett Hunter Capital Management, joins "A Deeper Dive" to discuss the state of mergers and acquisitions.

Its latest funding round gives the fast-casual pizza chain plenty of cash to accomplish its goals, with a public offering possible down the line.

The fast-growing pizza chain plans to reach 1,000 locations in five years after an equity injection led by Clayton, Dubilier & Rice.

The fast-growing Chinese chain raises more than $570 million in its U.S. offering.

A company operated by Marcus Jundt has a $27 million stalking horse bid to buy the struggling casual-dining chain.

The chain's to-go and catering business has surged, while dine-in business has fallen.

The chain is reportedly looking to sell a stake in the business, suggesting the chain may be ready to speed its growth, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

The owner of Landry’s has formed a second public shell company and is raising $275 million to fund a deal.

The pizza chain’s founder has hired advisers to explore a sale of all or some of his shares.
