Unbridled Capital recently provided sell-side advisory to SDI Florida, led by Rick Ganson and Scott Condon, on the sale of 12 Sonic Drive-In restaurants in Jacksonville, Florida.

"The Unbridled team always stood out to us as the go-to advisors in Sonic given the prominent transactions they have led in the brand and their track record of success. Rick and his team worked diligently in our marketing process and beyond to achieve the best possible exit for our team and stakeholders. We can confidently say that Unbridled is best-in-class. They delivered on all commitments and worked tirelessly to achieve the best possible outcome for our group. We highly recommend any seller in the Sonic system look no further than Unbridled as their advisor in any transaction.”, said the SDI Florida team.
