Various food service operators are of interest to CRUZANI. We have a knack for recognizing winners. Are you a food entrepreneur we should meet?
With access to public capital even start-up projects can thrive to reach huge potential. They sky is not the limit. (Astronauts eat too.)
When entrepreneurs experience the synergy of public investment a transformation occurs that benefits all. Tremendous growth is possible.
We have the skills and connections to ascertain your hidden value. Private companies can experience higher valuations in the public capital market. You may have assets, skills and concepts that don’t appear on your balance sheet that make all the difference in the world to the savvy public market, where investors have vision. We can help you, the food entrepreneur, to discover the qualities that you take for granted – and capitalize them to achieve the next level of success that you deserve.
Being a public company is an earned privilege, not a right. It takes special knowledge, dedication and aptitude. Most private entrepreneurs could never make this leap by themselves. That’s were CRUZANI comes in. If your food enterprise has the potential to satisfy customers and the investing public, both, then we can make it happen for you. By being part of the CRUZANI organization as a continuing co-venture partner or by divesting yourself of the enterprise at this time to us, we will find a solution that is good for all.
Public companies are in the public eye. Always. This is both a challenge and an opportunity. We can help you transition from being a local food enterprise that has looked for ways to create awareness, into a widely known operation. Public companies have communication resources and expertise that are just not practical for smaller firms to maintain. As we discover your food enterprise’s qualities, we can apply a national, and international, platform for getting your message out for your sake and ours. As partners in success, CRUZANI focuses on bringing select private food enterprises into our family of holdings so that they can benefit from group talents and resources.
No matter how much you like what you do, you may reach the day when additional pursuits beckon. Some experiences have been delayed for a lifetime because of your dedication. What good is a life that is not lived fully? CRUZANI can help. As a public company, we are uniquely qualified to identify how you, the hardworking and successful food entrepreneur can convert your business accomplishments into a financial exit package that let’s you go after those other pursuits. In this way, CRUZANI may even be the best way to ensure the continuity of your legacy of achievement – a deeply satisfying approach.

In March 2018, CRUZANI announced that it had acquired 100% of a health-conscious, restaurant concept, providing an exit horizon for its developer. The brand is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia and is currently planning to expand across the Southeast. The chain will offer consumers a healthy, diverse menu made with fresh organic ingredients every day. The brand offers a diverse menu from flatbread sandwiches, bowls, wraps, salads, and fresh proteins such as chicken, turkey, steak and falafel.

With advances in packaging and shipping technology, it is becoming increasingly possible to ship packaged snack food and other consumables internationally.

What we drink used to conventional. Now, it defies convention. Are fruit juices virtuous, or too sugary? Are vegetable juices ideal, or lacking fiber? Retailers want long shelf-life, but nobody likes preservatives. Should beverages be “natural” or infused to have super benefits? Are beverages for pleasure, or ultimately for hydration? Countless discussions arise from burgeoning innovation is what we drink, its packaging, the tolerated price points and distribution realities. The business opportunities here are flowing faster than ever.
