August 15, 2013

Kout Food Group (“KFG”) has once again turned to DCL – the leisure specialists – to carry out a property due diligence on its latest purchase of eight Costa Coffee franchises across the South West of England. South West Coffee was the Costa franchisee of the year for 2010-11 and for 2011-12.

This is the Kuwaiti-based food services group’s second purchase in as many weeks, after it acquired the Little Chef Group with 98 restaurants from private equity firm RCapital – DCL provided KFG with a review of the portfolio and carried out the property due diligence.

Trevor Watson, Director of DCL said: “We are delighted to have advised KFG on these transactions. Our unique understanding of the leisure market enables us to provide advice on a wide range of transactions.”
