Unbridled Capital Sells 6 KFCs in OH, KY



Unbridled Capital recently provided sell-side advisory to Chambers Enterprises LTD on the sale of its 6 KFC restaurants in Ohio and Kentucky.

Keith Chambers is one of the most recognizable and respected franchisees in the entire KFC system.  His KFC Journey started 43 years ago with franchisee Bob and Anne Bagshaw, who encouraged Keith and his wife Carol to become KFC franchisees 30 years ago. Keith is also a servant leader, having served as past AKFCF President, 12 years on the NAC/NCAC boards and 4 years as NAC Chair/NCAC Vice Chair. He presently serves on the RSCS-KFC Concept Board and as the AKFCF Archive Chair.

“It was a privilege to work with the Unbridled Capital professionals, particularly Rick Ormsby and Derek Ball, whose expertise and service-based attitude, sometimes 7 days a week, day and night, added tremendous value to our transaction…and KFC transition,” said Keith.

“We are very thankful to have helped Keith and his wife Carol in the sale of their life’s work. Keith is an honorable man, a well-respected franchisee and a friend. While this concludes a wonderful chapter in their journey, I am certain that Keith and Carol have a fantastic future ahead. I hope fellow franchisees take the opportunity to thank Keith for all he has done for the KFC brand. Finally, we congratulate KBP Foods on yet another acquisition,” said Rick Ormsby, Managing Director.

As a condition of this and one other closing, Unbridled Capital has made a charitable contribution of $20,000 to the KFC Foundation. Especially during the Christmas season, we want to give back to the employees that are so important to the success of the KFC brand. We want to be a blessing because we’ve been blessed.

With 10 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].
