Superfranchiser Investigations

November 14, 2022

On behalf of the one the largest restaurant chains in the world, performed recurring comprehensive due diligence investigations of proposed “Superfranchisers” that represented the company’s planned expansion into certain new geographic markets including Morocco, Russia, Saudi Arabia and China. These proposed superfranchisers already owned multiple franchises of other restaurant chains and the investigations were performed in an effort to assist the company in determining whether they represented suitable business partners. Issues such as unusually close relationships with the Kremlin, a contaminated food outbreak in Morocco and other issues assisted the company to have productive discussions with their proposed business partners prior to contract.
