Trinity Capital LLC served as the exclusive financial advisor to QSR International LDC, a 120-unit, multi-brand Master Franchise quick-service restaurant developer currently conducting business in 16 countries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, in its divestiture of 32 KFC franchised restaurants in Costa Rica to Intelectiva Costa Rica SRL, led by well-known Mexican businessman, Roberto González Alcalá. Trinity developed and managed a highly competitive process that included both financial and strategic buyers from several countries across North, South and Central America. Trinity worked with the Company to select a buyer that represented the optimal combination of price and ability to close.
"Trinity ran a robust marketing process that included strategic and financial buyers from all around the world. They represented our company with the utmost professionalism and delivered a well-qualified buyer that will continue to grow the KFC business. This divestiture will allow us to focus on expanding our master franchise portfolio while providing capital to accelerate the growth of both Quiznos and Smashburger in Costa Rica. It also will provide the capital needed to fulfill a lifelong dream of owning a franchisor. We look forward to working with Trinity on future transactions and highly recommend them to others considering selling or buying a business."
