Company Overview:

Licensed fried chicken and food service concept designed for convenience store operators.


Brookline was engaged by the shareholders of the company to evaluate strategic alternatives that would support a liquidity event for existing shareholders and position the company and existing management to capitalize on substantial growth opportunities with a capital partner.

Brookline's Tailored Approach:

Brookline clearly articulated the unique business model as a platform and built financial models and presentation materials to highlight the strategic value to investors. During the process, Brookline added significant value to the company by performing financial planning and analysis functions both during and in the aftermath of the transaction. The ideal potential partner targets at the end of the process saw the opportunity to capitalize on significantly expanding further into the target rich distribution environment of the 100,000+ convenience store targets.
