The market cools off for restaurant acquisitions

The Bottom Line: Inflation concerns and margin pressures haven’t just hurt stocks. The market for restaurant deals has slowed to a crawl as sellers wait until things improve.

Terms of the deal were not revealed.

The two brands are becoming part of a new holding company that's looking to find young growth chains.

The acquisition will create one of the country’s largest privately held quick-service companies, parent MB International Brands said.

The company also operates Dunkin’ locations. U.S. private equity firm The Carlyle Group plans to sell its shares in the company.

The deal extends Lunchbox's reach into larger chains and furthers its goal of consolidating restaurant tech.

Restaurant Rewind: The investor knows how to bag his prey. Will this pursuit be as nasty as the last one?

The deal adds a 19th brand to the Canadian franchisor's holdings, which include Milestones and Pita Pit.

The company is buying Nestle Toll House Café by Chip and will convert the locations into Great American Cookies.
