Greg Burns, Stonebriar managing director, stated, “With our flexible capital and experienced team, we were able to provide a timely capital solution for this restaurant acquisition. The stores’ proven cash flows, core market locations, strong brand, and the franchisee’s multi-concept expertise make this a compelling transaction. We look forward to cultivating our relationships with both the franchisee and franchisor, and will continue to seek out strong franchise finance opportunities.” 

Jeff McCoy, Stonebriar VP of Credit, added, “We’re excited to have supported the franchisee and fast-growing franchisor to deliver this acquisition financing on an expedited basis.
