US-based premier firm Best Impressions Caterers has acquired Duvall Catering & Events following operational and financial support from private equity firm Falfurrias Capital Partners.
The deal will allow Best Impressions to expand its presence to Charleston, South Carolina.
Under the partnership, Falfurrias Capital will also assist Best Impressions to establish its regional network of premium caterers across the Southeast through additional partners.
Best Impressions Caterers founder and president Dave Byron said: “Best Impressions is excited about our partnership with Falfurrias Capital Partners and teaming up with Steve and our new colleagues at Duvall Catering & Events, which will allow us to better serve new and existing clients and provide expanded career opportunities for our combined staff.
“All of our clients need to know that nothing is going to change and that we are as committed as ever to providing the best food, experience and overall satisfaction for our customers and staff.”
Byron will be named the new CEO of the combined entity following the completion of the transaction, while Duvall Catering owner and CEO Steve Wenger will continue to assist the company in growing its business.
Falfurrias Capital Partners founding partner Marc Oken said: “Our regional growth strategy for Best Impressions is based on our conviction that other top caterers across the Southeast can benefit from the experience and expertise of Dave and his team, as well as the operational and financial support of Falfurrias Capital.”
Established in 1989, Best Impressions offers a range of culinary services to its corporate and social clients.
