Unbridled Provides Sell-Side Advisory to 6 Taco Bell Restaurants in the Midwest


Unbridled Capital recently provided sell-side advisory services to MMC Enterprises Ltd. and related entities, led by Jeff Firari, on the sale of 6 Taco Bell restaurants in the Midwest. The restaurants were sold to existing franchisee Shamrock TBC, Inc., led by Dan McGue.


“I have known Rick for almost 20 years, and I am happy to be a repeat client. The Unbridled team did an outstanding job in finding the right buyer and helping to get this deal closed. They are thorough, patient, experienced, analytical, involved at every step, and have a variety of essential expertise in selling a franchise business successfully. They get my highest endorsement – if you are a franchisee looking to sell, you should hire Unbridled Capital. I thank them for a job well done so that my family can plan for the next phase of our lives,” said franchisee Jeff Firari.

“Having a repeat customer in Jeff is an honor and testament to how deeply we care about franchisees and their personification of the American Dream. We are appreciative to both teams for staying committed to the process of transitioning these stores – the past year hasn’t been easy! Taco Bell is an amazing brand, and I fully expect we will see Dan McGue grow this family business with much success in the future. It’ll be fun to watch! To all parties, congratulations on this successful closing from everyone at Unbridled Capital,” said Rick Ormsby, Managing Director.

While franchise M&A activity has been slow, this is Unbridled’s third Taco Bell closing this year. We have almost 15 other deals in the pipeline, all while continuing to maintain an industry-leading closing percentage of over 90%.
