Hey, remember when investment firms couldn’t get enough of smaller restaurant chains?
That market has slowed. This week’s edition of the Restaurant Business podcast “A Deeper Dive” features Jeff Brock, managing partner with private-equity firm Hargett Hunter Capital Management.
Brock discusses the state of the M&A markets, and why investors that not long ago couldn’t get enough of fast-casual chains seem to have soured on the sector, or at least slowed their investment level.
Brock also discusses the challenges that growth chains have had recently, and why some regional concepts can’t necessarily replicate their success. He also has advice for operators looking to get funding.
Please have a listen.
