Restaurants

The restaurant landscape is changing rapidly with emerging concepts taking considerable market share from more established companies. Positioning the corporate brand is critical, but it must be backed by high-quality menu options and service that truly sets the business apart. Being on-trend with the consumer and having a credible unit growth plan that addresses a real market opportunity are critical to achieving and maintaining a premium valuation.

ICR’s restaurant team is a force in the private and publicly traded restaurant world, developing investor, media, and crises plans for quick-service, fast-casual, casual and fine-dining concepts. We have also been a “go to” partner in the sector for IPOs and secondary offerings (both advisory and communications), M&A, spin-offs, and “go-privates” with more than 75 transactions over the last 15 years.  Our experience is rounded out by numerous shareholder activism assignments, executive transitions, and the creation of corporate video for a variety of purposes, including IPO roadshows.
