Supreme Foods Growth Driven by Acquisition Due Diligence and Fast Lease Abstraction
Supreme Foods is steadfast in its commitment to growth, employing a strategy grounded in meticulous due diligence and the implementation of scalable operations. In a fiercely competitive market, the company recognizes the paramount importance of thorough scrutiny when considering acquisitions. This involves comprehensive checks for easements, Common Area Maintenance (CAM) charges, and sales anomalies before venturing into the bidding process. However, the complexities escalate when managing additional locations, necessitating a proactive approach to navigate through numerous key milestones and dates. This poses a unique challenge for the company’s lean yet dynamic team.
The challenges at hand encompass the management of real estate portfolios comprising 36 Burger Kings, 34 Popeyes, and 3 Taco Johns. Juggling the diverse requirements and key lease dates for this extensive portfolio is a task that demands precision and foresight. Additionally, Supreme Foods is actively addressing the challenge of supporting their fast-moving merger and acquisition growth plans, ensuring seamless integration and sustained success. Furthermore, the impending retirement of the Chief Financial Officer adds another layer of complexity, requiring strategic preparations to seamlessly transition responsibilities and maintain financial stability during this significant change. Supreme Foods is poised to overcome these challenges with strategic planning and a commitment to excellence.
Supreme Foods began their journey in the franchise business 14.5 years ago with a single unit in Mayfield, KY.
After successfully persuading the corporation to acquire four stores and subsequently signing a Development Agreement, they continued to grow. Driven by a passion for ownership, Kevin Newell started with one unit and have since expanded to 73 locations, currently adding 31 more through acquisitions.
