Global investment in 2022 has been majorly dominated by North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, whereas the Middle East, and South and Central America have recorded low investments comparatively.

Healthcare, Financial Services, Business & Consumer Services, and Construction sectors have also seen high investment activity by PE/VC firms, recording a deal value of over $70 billion each.   But what can this mean for you?   Understand how the Deals Database on GlobalData Explorer can be leveraged to:

With this acquisition, FAT Brands forayed into the snack and pizza segments.

These brands are now part of FAT Brands’ Quick-Service Division. The franchising company noted that demand has been ‘high’ for new franchises, especially among the existing franchisees.

FAT Brands said that the demand for Great American Cookies and Marble Slab Creamery co-branded restaurant model has been high in areas such as Nashville, Tennessee; Houston, Texas; and Shreveport, Louisiana.

The company also signed development deals for its Hot Dog on a Stick and Pretzelmaker brands.

Altogether, FAT Brands’ Quick-Service Division has more than 150 units in the pipeline, with 30 locations planned for this year.

FAT Brands’ Quick-Service Division president Jenn Johnston said: “While the pandemic has certainly impacted the restaurant space, we are so fortunate to have a deep store pipeline in addition to solid same-store-sales growth.

“In the fourth quarter of 2021, same-store sales within the division were up 10.6% in comparison to 2019 and up 16.1% in comparison to 2020.

“Since joining FAT Brands, we have increased our scale, offered franchisees access to new services, and have formed new synergies at both the brand and corporate level.”
