Gala Capital Partners, a Costa Mesa-based investment firm that funds Mooyah Burgers and Cici’s Pizza, has acquired Minnesota-based Dunn Brothers Coffee. The details of the deal were not disclosed, according to a press release.
“We believe Dunn Brothers is the best-kept secret in the coffee segment and we look forward to working with the management team and franchise partners to bring this great product and brand to the rest of the world,” Anand Gala, Gala’s founder and managing partner, said in the release.
“Gala Capital Partners aims to add value through their multi-concept portfolio, applying their deep experience as both a franchisee/operator as well as the franchisor,” Kim Plahn, president of Dunn Brothers Coffee, said in the release. “Having been both a franchisee and a franchisor, they understand what makes for a strong, collaborative, and profitable business for both. We’re excited for the opportunity to continue to build the Dunn Brothers brand with them.”
Dunn Brothers was founded in 1987 and has 59 locations in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Texas and Missouri.
