Rod F&B services
In recent decades, the F&B industry has divided into two main groups: the first is made up of individuals or small companies setting up independent shops, which have traditionally been the core of the food business in the region; and the second is of large F&B investing companies that arrived later, in the 1980s, but quickly rose through the ranks by mounting into both, regional and international markets.
Having orchestrated deals in several consumer markets and having engaged with the institutional & private investors and experts across all the geographies, we have built a strong team at ROD F&B to identify high growth opportunities with robust management teams focusing on F&B transactions exclusively. The team has advised on both, majority and minority ownership investments throughout the years. In either scenario, we strategize to scrutinize the business by restructuring or expanding the established to maximize the results even without having a majority vote.
For many people, the further they move down the retirement path, the greater the temptation to invest more conservatively, which is understandable. We help tilt your investment allocation by selling and disinvesting to realize a successful transformation or to make an overly diversified portfolio more focused and synergistic through expert administration and executive support. Given our ROD F&B team’s distinctive industry expertise when it comes to evaluating, analyzing, and comprehensive advising for our clients on the selling side, we help you make tough decisions with ease.
Valuing F&B businesses can be particularly complex, as they differ according to the unit economics regionally. The seller wants the best price for their business and the buyer doesn’t want to pay too much. Therefore, our team can describe the sources of value creation, the structure of the company, the terms and project the returns for the investor in the context of analysis. When evaluating a company we consider everything from management, product approachability and quality, potential market opportunity, revenue metrics, gross margin, scalability, current supply chain, as well as barriers to entry (which often includes intellectual property).
Through our global, full-service real estate and retail platform, we bring insights and intelligence required to predict and analyze changes in the F&B landscape.
