LEADING OUR BRAND PARTNERS INTO THE FUTURE
Successfully Conquering the QSR Industry One Smart Acquisition at a Time
WE GROW UNITS BY GROWING PEOPLE
BRAND & PEOPLE BUILDING AMBASSADORS
It is our belief that in order for us and our brand partners to emerge at the top in the QSR industry, it is important to have a strong people first driven culture, and a powerful high standard of service execution. We take pride in the teams we have built, in their growth and in all they have achieved. No matter the challenge - broken units we have purchased from disenchanted or tired ownership, Hurricane Harvey, pandemic related government mandated shutdowns or limitations, we Emerge! through the chaos and adapt and overcome because our people don’t act like victims of circumstance but rather are conquerors who overcome all barriers! In the face of change, we rise up and win where others fail.
We carefully select brands and markets for smart acquisitions and then cultivate organic growth through a focus on PEOPLE!
RISING UP TO THE CHALLENGE WHEN OTHERS WON’T
Transitions are tough, but we love a challenge!
An excellent track record of execution and confirmation of compliance with your brand's remodel schedule.
SEAMLESS & FLUID
We are confident that the handoff to our organization will avoid disruption to the business and minimize the impact to the employees and their management teams.
ADHERENCE TO BRAND
VISION AND MISSION
Our restaurants are brand building ambassadors and we take pride in helping the brand move forward, because we know that if we win as part of the franchisee system we all win!
YOU ARE ONLY AS GOOD AS YOUR TEAM
Since 2009 We've Been Trusted
With QSR Turnarounds, Transformations & Transitions.
We Are Proud of Our Team and Their Results:
We started out purchasing under perfor-ming units with potential. We developed operations, improved assets, upgraded management teams, and partnered with brands to enhance guests' and employees' experiences. We increased sales and profitability, growing unit PRA sales significantly.
Now, we purchase successful units and uncover further sales growth. We lead and inspire unit leaders to develop their teams, enhance operations, grow sales, and increase profitability.
Brands trust in our method of transition-ing teams into Emerge! In early 2017 we gained approval for Sonic Brand and purchased 29 restaurants in Houston, Texas. Soon after we purchased 27 KFC corporate units in the Houston area. 8 Taco Bell units in the Houston area followed, and we recently acquired 30 Pizza Huts in Arizona!
Four major brands and 131 branches nationwide!
Our founder's journey in the restaurant business began in 2009. Kamal gained approval as a franchisee of Lenny’s Sub shop and purchased his 1st unit. For him, there was nothing more exciting than rebuilding a store. After several other purchases and sales, he was given the opportunity to transform 7 challenged KFC-Taco Bell units and became so obsessed with turnarounds that he sold everything he had to focus on getting the formula right. Emerge became experts in the industry doing the dirty work many others wouldn’t do, but after 131 transitions and so much experience gained, we discovered our true calling is in building people. We specialize cultivating organic growth through a focus on people. We grow units through growing people!
