Aaron Allen & Associates
We really cut our teeth in the M&A world by performing commercial and operational due diligence services for leading private equity firms, family offices, and institutional investors seeking to invest in technology companies and middle-market restaurant chains. Most of that work was cross-border with a lot of complexities (which we love and is a core strength). Here we have consolidated a few of the reasons why due diligence is an essential and necessary component of the M&A process.
Aaron Allen & Associates works alongside senior executives of the world’s leading foodservice and hospitality companies to help them solve their most complex challenges and achieve their most ambitious aims, specializing in brand strategy, turnarounds, commercial due diligence and value enhancement for leading hospitality companies and private equity firms.
Our clients span six continents and 100+ countries, collectively posting more than $300b in revenue. Across 2,000+ engagements, we’ve worked in nearly every geography, category, cuisine, segment, operating model, ownership type, and phase of the business life cycle.
