Growth Strategy Development and Implementation
- Business Assessment
We started this assignment when the company had only four locations and was seeking financing to open additional restaurants. Our initial assessment led to an engagement to provide advisory services.
- Business Advisory Services
We advised the Company on the development and implementation of a five year expansion strategy as well as advisory services related to the development and refinement of the proper infrastructure to accommodate the growth of the company.
- Corporate Finance
We worked closely with company management to secure debt financing, consisting of a combination of SBA financing, bank financing and mezzanine financing consisting of a combination of subordinated debt and common stock warrants, to open additional restaurants.
- Bottom Line
We assisted the company in developing a long term growth strategy with specific goals and objectives and worked closely with company management to implement the plan including raising new capital through a creative combination of debt and equity financing.
