Consumers & Retail
Pita Pit Canada ("PPC") is the franchisor to 228 Pita Pit locations across Canada. Pita Pit restaurants sell Mediterranean-style pita sandwiches, and offer a healthy alternative to traditional high fat, high-calorie fast foods. FirePower was engaged to arrange financing for PPC's acquisition of a majority interest in Pita Pit International ("PPI"), with a lender that would accommodate PPC's future expansion plans.
FirePower's M&A Advisory division generated multiple proposals from institutional lenders, then negotiated and structured favourable terms and pricing for PPC.
