Deal is first in a series that will result in the total acquisition of 50 stores by the end of the summer Joyal Capital Management LLC, a Boston-based financial advisory firm that specializes in estate and business planning and investment management, has announced that its client, Cafua Management, is purchasing 20 South Florida Dunkin’ Donuts locations, with plans to acquire an additional 30 locations in late summer.

The acquisition of the 20 stores in Broward County will give Cafua Management more than 300 locations across eight states and makes them the largest Dunkin’ Donuts franchise owner.

Joyal Capital Management and its affiliates are the largest providers of financial services to Dunkin’ Donuts franchises in the U.S. and have closed more than $500 million in franchise purchase transactions.

“We had a vision of what we wanted to accomplish in growing our business,” said Mark Cafua, CEO of Cafua Management.

“JCM was perfectly positioned to help us achieve that goal.” As the financial advisors for the deal, JCM was instrumental in closing the purchase, acquiring the debt placement for the deal, and will continue to consult with Cafua Management.

“The Dunkin’ Donuts brand has seen robust growth over the past few years while providing excellent returns for investors,” said Gary F. Joyal, CEO and Managing Partner of Joyal Capital Management (pictured). “We’re delighted that we could support Mark’s efforts to expand and look forward to continuing a great partnership.”
