Savory Fund Invests Growth Capital into Pincho to Accelerate Popular Brand’s Expansion

September 9, 2021

Miami-born burger and kebab concept positioned for rapid growth following Sept. 1 investment

Miami, FL  (  Savory Fund announced today that it has invested in the popular burger and kebab concept, Pincho. The Miami-based fast-casual chain is the latest brand to attract growth capital from Mercato Partners’ $200 million Savory Fund, which was created to back promising emerging restaurant concepts.

Founded in 2010 by serial entrepreneur Otto Othman, Pincho’s Latin-inspired menu features burgers, kebabs, salads, bowls and more. Its highly experiential and bold flavors offer unique twists on familiar foods that consumers already know and love.

“We know that consumers are craving unique flavors and international experiences, and they’re increasingly looking for restaurants to transport them to their favorite destinations,” said Andrew K. Smith, managing partner and co-founder of the Savory Fund. “That’s why we decided to invest in Pincho. Its international, award-winning menu, differentiated branding and strong leadership team led by Otto are exactly what we look for in concepts poised for rapid growth.”

Pincho emerged from the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic as a stable, winning concept thanks to the leadership team’s rapid adoption of new practices that optimized its off-premise and takeout business. Savory will capitalize on this positive momentum by unleashing the strengths of its value-added platform to enhance Pincho’s operations, accelerate its scale and unlock its massive potential.

Going forward, Othman will remain as CEO and will be joined on Pincho’s Board of Directors by Savory Fund executives Shauna Smith, Alonso Casteneda and Taylor DeHart.

Pincho currently operates eight retail locations across South Florida and licenses two additional locations at Florida International University and LoanDepot Park, home of the Miami Marlins. Savory’s investment will be used to immediately prepare for hyper-growth across a multi-state region, including additional growth in southern and central Florida and Texas.

“Since I first met the team at Savory more than two years ago, they have consistently demonstrated a unique ability to build brands like Pincho, unlocking additional enterprise value through their high level of execution and acceleration of scale,” Othman said. “We’re thrilled to partner with Savory and its outstanding leadership team as we embark on what is sure to be an exciting ride. We have always believed that Pincho is a concept that can and should expand from coast-to-coast, and I can’t wait to make our vision a reality.”

  2. Achieved notable improvement in DSD channel sales compared to pre-COVID levels during fiscal year 2021, with sequential improvement in every quarter, from down 45% at June 30, 2020 to down 27% for the fourth quarter of 2021

Deverl Maserang, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We’re very pleased with the continued progress we made during our fourth fiscal quarter, which builds on the work we achieved throughout the year and positions us well heading into the new fiscal year. Our optimization strategies have led to solid efficiencies that we’re seeing increasingly materialize as volumes have steadily improved throughout the quarter. As a result, we posted our strongest quarterly gross margin since the onset of the pandemic, and we expect these efficiencies to strengthen as volumes continue to recover.” Mr. Maserang continued, “Just prior to the onset of the pandemic, we put several initiatives in place and outlined our turnaround strategy, which included rebalancing and strengthening our footprint, optimizing our manufacturing capabilities and supply chain, modernizing our facilities, and implementing new technologies to expand our offerings and streamline our sales process. I am very proud of our team’s execution through a challenging environment, and we are gaining confidence as we’re starting to see more positive changes flow through our business, benefiting our bottom line. While we remain vigilant given recent developments in the trajectory of the pandemic, we have yet to see any meaningful impact from the Delta variant, and we’re encouraged by the weekly trends we’ve seen in the first few weeks of our fiscal first quarter.”

Dutch Bros Coffee targets $3.3B valuation in IPO

Sept. 7 2021, 10:42 a.m. EDT

By Alicia Kelso Contributing Reporter

UPDATE: Sept. 7, 2021: Dutch Bros Coffee on Tuesday set terms for its initial public offering, targeting a valuation of more than $3.3 billion. The coffee chain plans to raise more than $421 million in its IPO and will offer 21.1 million shares priced at $18 to $20 each.

UPDATE: Aug. 23, 2021: Dutch Bros Coffee on Friday filed documents for its initial public offering with plans to raise $100 million. The company will trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker "BROS."

The coffee chain's average unit volumes rose 3% in 2020 to $1.7 million, and its adjusted EBITDA jumped 43% last year to reach $70 million. Revenue also rose 37% in 2020 to $327.4 million.

"We believe we can capture share of any experience where customers seek to consume great beverages on the go," Dutch Bros said in its filing. "Customers are increasingly seeking new and differentiated beverages and the ability to customize these beverages with a multitude of flavor options."

Dive Brief:

  1. Oregon-based coffee chain Dutch Bros has confidentially submitted paperwork to the Securities and Exchange Commission with the intent to go public. The number of shares for its initial public offering has not been determined yet and is subject to the SEC's review process, market and other conditions, according to a press release.

  2. Founded in 1992, Dutch Bros has grown to over 420 locations in 11 states. Former CEO and co-founder Travis Boersma told Forbes the chain could add up to 400 new outlets in the next three to five years, which would nearly double its footprint.

  3. This filing comes as U.S. initial public offerings have surpassed the 2020 record with more than six months remaining in the year, driven by pent-up demand for investments after a year of crisis, low interest rates and high corporate valuations. Krispy Kreme has already filed an IPO this year and Torchy's Tacos and Sweetgreen are rumored to be considering public debuts as well.

Dive Insight:

Dutch Bros was on an ambitious expansion tear prior to this SEC filing, with 53 new units opening in 2020 and another 85 expected this year. There could be growing pains ahead, however. The company roasts all of its coffee beans in its hometown of Grants Pass, Oregon, and maintaining that supply could pose a challenge as it speeds up its proliferation with investor funding.

Still, the concept seems ripe for investor and consumer interest. The chain's local hook can create a consumer perception of superior quality that could differentiate it from coffee giants Starbucks and Dunkin'. Further, 97% of Dutch Bros formats are already drive-thru locations. Because of that, Dutch Bros doesn't offer third-party delivery and has established a strong and growing suburban footprint.

In other words, it's ahead of the game compared to coffee rivals that are sprinting to add more drive-thrus, which became a table stakes channel during the pandemic, and shifting their focus from metro to suburban markets after commuter traffic dwindled. The Brookings Institute found that populations grew more rapidly in cities than suburbs between 2010 and the first half of 2015, but that trend began to reverse during the 12 months ending July 2016 and the COVID-19 crisis has significantly exacerbated that pattern.

In response to these trends, Starbucks announced in January it is increasing the number of drive-thru locations in Central, Southeast and Southwest U.S. markets, and is now sharply focused on suburban locations. The company also closed hundreds of stores in its shift toward off-premise-geared units.

Dutch Bros continued its growth through the pandemic, which could indicate a strong business model. The coffee segment overall was among the hardest hit during the pandemic, as commuters were taken off the roads in favor of a work-from-home model. According to Bloomberg, independent coffee shop sales were down by 12% last year. Starbucks same-store sales at one point were down 40%. The Allegra Group estimates it will take two years for coffee chains to recover from the crisis. If this IPO gains a significant amount of traction, it could be a sign of recovery for the segment.

September 01, 2021 06:00 ET

Sports Lodge Marks the First Polished Casual Dining Chain to Join FAT Brands

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FAT (Fresh. Authentic. Tasty.) Brands Inc. (NASDAQ: FAT) (“FAT Brands” or the “Company”) announced today that it has agreed to acquire Twin Peaks, a chain of sports lodges known for scratch-made food and signature 29° draft beers, from Garnett Station Partners for $300 million. This acquisition brings to FAT Brands a fast-growing, polished casual dining brand, and will be funded with the proceeds of $250 million of new securitization notes and the issuance to the sellers of shares of Series B preferred stock. The transaction is expected to close by the end of September 2021.

The acquisition of Twin Peaks will expand the FAT Brands portfolio from quick-service, fast casual and casual dining concepts into the fast-growing segment of polished casual dining. With 82 stores currently open, six additional stores due to open by year-end 2021, and another 18 under development over the next 18 months, the purchase of Twin Peaks is expected to bring FAT Brands’ systemwide sales from approximately $1.4 billion to over $1.8 billion across more than 2,100 franchised and corporate-owned stores around the world. The addition of Twin Peaks, including the new stores due to open and under development, is expected to increase the Company’s post-COVID normalized EBITDA by approximately $25 to $30 million.

“Twin Peaks is a noteworthy addition for FAT Brands. Following the recent acquisitions of Johnny Rockets and Global Franchise Group, this acquisition comes at a time when we’re seeking to expand our market segments into sports and polished casual dining,” said FAT Brands CEO Andy Wiederhorn. “As a strong, growth-oriented concept, Twin Peaks complements our existing brands. The average unit volumes between $4.5 million and $6.5 million for new units is at the high end of industry growth standards. The exceptional unit economics and proven track record of the Twin Peaks brand has led to extraordinary demand for new store openings from new and existing franchisees. The current pipeline of new franchise locations as well as the large potential for global expansion of this successful brand is what brought us to the table and makes this a truly unique acquisition for FAT Brands. We’re pleased to have the support of Garnett Station Partners as we continue the expansion of Twin Peaks into new markets.”

“The sale of Twin Peaks to FAT Brands marks a major milestone for us after a year of consistent sales growth as we work towards our vision of becoming a global-facing brand,” said Joe Hummel, CEO of Twin Peaks. “FAT Brands has a proven track record of scaling and introducing concepts to international markets. We’re excited to be part of Andy’s vision as he continues to build FAT Brands.”

Matt Perelman, Managing Partner at Garnett Station Partners added: “Since our investment, Twin Peaks has become one of the fastest growing sports-themed, bar-forward concepts in the sector. We’re thankful for Andy’s partnership as we move forward with this deal and are confident that Twin Peaks will continue its success under FAT Brands.”

Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc. Reports Results for the Fiscal Second Quarter Ended July 11, 2021

August 18, 2021 04:05 PM Eastern Daylight Time

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc. (NASDAQ:RRGB) ("Red Robin" or the "Company"), a full-service restaurant chain serving an innovative selection of high-quality gourmet burgers in a family-friendly atmosphere, today reported financial results for the quarter ended July 11, 2021.

Key Highlights

  1. Restaurant revenue of $272.2 million and Restaurant Level Operating Profit as a percentage of restaurant revenue (a non-GAAP metric) of 15.7%;

  2. Second quarter 2021 comparable restaurant revenue(1) increased 66.3% over the same period in 2020, and decreased 2.4% compared to the same period in 2019;

  3. Average weekly sales per fiscal period grew by a total of $2,503 during the second quarter of 2021;

  4. Off-premises sales comprised 32.8%, 63.8% and 12.5% of total food and beverage sales for the second quarters of 2021, 2020 and 2019, respectively;

  5. By the end of the second fiscal quarter, restaurants that were able to operate at 100% indoor dining capacity and with full hours delivered a comparable restaurant revenue increase of 7.0% compared to 2019 and restaurant margin of 19.5%, representing an increase of 1.8% compared to 2019; and,

  6. Restaurants that offered Donatos® pizza outperformed the rest of the system by 550 basis points as compared to 2019 and outperformed our original restaurant sales growth target by 250 basis points. Donatos® pizza generated sales of $2.9 million dollars in the second quarter of 2021.

Paul J. B. Murphy III, Red Robin’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "While we have reasons to be optimistic about the recovery, overall performance in the second quarter was below our expectation. Contributing factors included ongoing jurisdictional restrictions and challenging labor availability which resulted in reduced operating hours to ensure a quality Guest experience and reduce impact on our restaurant management teams. Notably, we generated strong sales and margins at restaurants where staffing levels supported elevated traffic compared to 2019. Specific initiatives that are addressing our staffing needs include national hiring events, technology enhancements to the application and hiring processes, and incremental hiring and training resources to grow staffing levels above 2019."

Murphy continued, "Off-premises sales are holding at roughly a third of total sales mix, more than double pre-pandemic levels, demonstrating that Guests are enjoying the convenience of takeout and delivery even as dining room sales recover. While we continue to monitor developments regarding the COVID-19 variants, at this time we remain confident that we can capture heightened demand with full capacity, and restored staffing and operating hours, providing substantial opportunity for additional sales. Importantly, our conviction that Donatos® will be a long-term growth driver is stronger than ever, with sales exceeding expectations and positioning Red Robin to deliver annual pizza sales of over $60 million and profitability of over $25 million by 2023."

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Summary Compared to Second Quarter 2020 and 2019

The following table presents financial highlights for the fiscal second quarter of 2021, compared to results from the same period in 2020 and 2019:

The increase in average Guest check resulted from a 3.0% increase in pricing, a 14.9% increase in menu mix, and a 0.7% increase from lower discounts.

Average weekly sales per fiscal period grew by a total of $2,503 during the second quarter of 2021.
