Unbridled Capital Receives 2021 Franchise Times Dealmaker of the Year



Unbridled Capital is honored to receive recognition by Franchise Times as a Dealmaker of the Year 2021 for buy-side advisory services for Restaurant Brands New Zealand’s acquisition of the assets of Great American Chicken, the primary KFC franchisee in Los Angeles with 70 restaurants.

Last month, Unbridled Capital was chosen as a 3X winner of the 2021 Franchise Times Dealmaker of the Year awards. This is likely the only time any advisor has ever won this award three times in one year. Perhaps even more impressive, of the 11 total Dealmaker of the Year awards granted in 2021, there were only 3 restaurant franchisee-to-franchisee M&A transactions that received awards. Unbridled advised on all 3 of these transactions and was the only M&A advisor in each deal. Wow!

“I want thank the panelists at Franchise Times for selecting this transaction for a Dealmaker of the Year Award in 2021. Additionally, we want to congratulate the buyer and seller on this landmark transaction that brings an internationally based public company into the USA to become one of KFC’s largest domestic franchisees. As always, we are very thankful to our clients, and we wish the most success for each of them here. For Unbridled, we are humbled and honored to win these awards. I believe this previously unheard-of momentum shows unmistakably that Unbridled Capital is the most-thorough, most-effective, and best-connected franchise M&A advisory firm in our country,” said Rick Ormsby, Managing Director.

Concurrent with this award, Rick Ormsby will be leading in a virtual discussion panel during Franchise Times Dealmakers Week April 19-22, 2021. He will be discussing Attracting Capital to Your Business–What Buyers and Sellers Want Now! on Wednesday, April 21st at 11:00 AM CST.
