Unbridled Capital Sells 11 TB/KFCs in MO, IL, IA


Unbridled Capital recently provided sell-side advisory to John and Will Duryea on the sale of their 11-unit portfolio of 5 Taco Bells, 3 KFCs, and 3 co-branded KT restaurants in Missouri, Illinois and Iowa. The restaurants were sold to KBP Foods.

“Unbridled Capital exceeded our expectations every step of the way. They secured the best price with the lowest deal risk for our family. Given Unbridled’s strong track record [~91% success rate], we knew we were in good hands once we selected a buyer. Their team worked proactively, day and night, to ensure our transaction was always moving forward with efficiency. If you are looking for a group to treat your sale as if it was their own, I’d look no further than Unbridled Capital,” said franchisee Will Duryea.

“We are absolutely honored to have represented the Duryea’s. This sale was logistically more difficult than most in that we had two distinct sellers (dad and son), three types of restaurants (TB, KT, KFC) and three states of operation (MO, IL, IA). I’m proud of the hard-work and expertise that our Unbridled team provided to the Duryea family, who we consider as long-time friends. We send a hearty congratulations to them as well as KBP Foods on this transaction.” said Rick Ormsby, Managing Director.

As a condition of this closing and token of our appreciation, Unbridled Capital will make a charitable contribution to the Taco Bell and KFC Foundations which assist employees obtaining education, navigating crisis situations and with their personal finances. We want to be a blessing because we’ve been blessed.

With about 20 active and recent KFC assignments, Unbridled Capital provides the franchise community with unrivaled investment banking services. For more information, please contact Rick Ormsby at 502-252-6422 or [email protected].
