First time owner expands rapidly.
A local entrepreneur, who happened to be a professional athlete as well, wanted to hit reset with his career and venture into the restaurant industry. He struggled with how to proceed until he had a chance meeting with a highly successful multi-restaurant owner who was on the verge of launching a new concept. After a series of meetings, it was agreed that an opportunity would be given to create a franchise of the nascent concept. The challenge was to find a suitable location for this.
The franchise was having great success with their first couple of locations and decided to initially expand with franchisees. We helped our client negotiate the purchase of an existing restaurant at his first location and later review the leases of his next few sites. He now has six highly profitable locations in five different counties in California.
