Unbridled Provides Buy-Side Advisory to 8 Taco Bells in Ohio


Unbridled Capital recently provided buy-side advisory services to Pacific Bells on the sale of 8 Taco Bells in Ohio. The selling franchisee was Sigma Bell, led by Archie Giles and Joe LaRoche, who became franchisees in the Cleveland DMA in 1999. Their people-first culture and legacy of integrity will continue as they operate in other Taco Bell markets in Ohio.

“We are thankful to all parties for being part of this transaction. Taco Bell continues to be the most sought-after brand in franchising. Pacific Bells has been growing tremendously, and we applaud their long-time commitment and success within the Taco Bell system. I have known Archie and Joe for almost 20 years – they are friends, and I respect them greatly. For Archie, Joe, their partners, and the entire team at Pacific Bells, we wish everyone a heart-felt congratulations,” said Rick Ormsby, Managing Director.

At Unbridled, we are ardent supporters of the Taco Bell brand, its franchisees, and its employees. As a condition of this closing, Unbridled has made a contribution to the Taco Bell Foundation in support of the employees who operate this great brand each day. We want to be a blessing because we have been blessed.

Despite meteoric growth, Unbridled Capital continues to maintain an industry-leading closing percentage of over 90%. For more information, please contact Rick Ormsby at 502-252-6422 and [email protected].
