a different approach to PARTNERSHIP


Equicorp Partners is best known for leveraging our collective experiences to build great and enduring brands

We partner with talented management teams of large legacy brands as well as proven entrepreneurs of emerging brands in the food, restaurant, and franchising segments, by providing growth capital, operational and financial management, and brand building support.

For over 20 years we have partnered with Freeman Spogli & Co., a leading private equity firm focused on investing in middle market consumer and distribution businesses. These experienced investors provide access to growth capital and long-term strategic advice to the management teams and companies they partner with.

Throughout our careers, Equicorp Partners has managed multiple brands in over 30 countries. We have been senior executives, franchisors, franchisees, and advisors for private and public Fortune 200 companies. But, most importantly, we have spent our careers developing enduring partnerships.

Our Approach


Our Approach


Building Brands

We have helped to build more than a dozen brands with the exact same passion to strengthen and refine the brand’s essence, to discover and promote the brand’s distinctive difference and to build brands for lasting success.

Building Operational Focus

We are – at our core – operators. It is what we love to do. As a result, we assist talented teams to perfect operating systems and build meaningful efficiencies. We stimulate innovative thinking and work to assist in the creation of operational excellence designed to deliver exceptional guest experiences that are both memorable and sustainable.

Building Financial Stability 

We approach financial performance as though it delivers the final score – and it does. It is the measure of success we expect for building great brands and delivering great guest experiences and service. We solve problems and find ways to win.
