Triton Pacific CEO Craig Faggen said: “This acquisition is a transformative addition to the existing Tasty Chick’n business, providing an opportunity to leverage the strong operations and historical performance of the acquired restaurants.

“With a historical track record of strong cash flow and above brand average unit volumes, we are confident in the growth prospects alongside our current portfolio.”

In December 2023, Triton Pacific’s portfolio company Tasty D’Lites signed an agreement to acquire 17 Dunkin’ restaurants in the US for an undisclosed sum.

Tasty D’Lites also agreed to acquire a central manufacturing location in Vermont.

For Tasty D’Lites, the deal served as a secondary platform investment, complementing its existing operations in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The acquisition also establishes Tasty D’Lites’ presence in the Northeast region of the US.
