From national chains to independent operators, we have the experience and team to help restaurant groups navigate their challenges successfully.

The restaurant industry has been dominated by instability and disruption. Costs continue to rise and staff shortages remain. To be competitive, restaurants are incorporating home delivery options, touchless payment and pickup, revamping menus, and balancing overhead costs. As industry conditions and customer preferences evolve, restaurants must adapt to succeed.

Carl Marks Advisors is well-qualified to assist restaurant operators develop tactics and processes that overcome operational challenges. We also have a proven track record of working with stakeholders to implement balance sheet restructurings, debt conversions, capital raises, and M&A transactions that strengthen a firm’s long-term viability.
