TAKING BRANDS
FROM ZERO TO
ONE HUNDRED

Pivotal Growth Partners is a holding company and growth platform focused on accelerating small, emerging brands to scale for private equity. We saw a gap in the franchise development market where private equity firms were overlooking phenomenal brands because of their lack of size.

In response, we’ve spent the last 12+ years perfecting our ability to identify those brands that private equity firms are skipping over. We’ve created one of the most unique and efficient growth processes in the industry, focusing on collaboration and strategic advisement. By unifying the primary components of retail brand growth – capital, operators and real estate – into one cohesive organization, we’ve created a brand incubation system built to skyrocket growth in every brand we work with.

THE PGP DIFFERENCE

Hands-On Strategic Advisement

The most critical component to our approach is working closely with brand leaders to discover and implement the best possible solutions to maximize growth. Your success is our success – it’s that simple.

System Alignment & Brand Incubation

As brand development experts, we know that systemwide growth means aligning the interests of operators and management. We create a growth culture – with every player working toward the same goal.

Growth & Visibility for Private Equity

Through our network of experienced operators, developers and growth experts with turn-key availability, we give small brands a big boost, preparing them for acquisition through rapid, sustainable growth.

OUR NATIONWIDE NETWORK

Our network of partners include 365+ franchisee groups and 55 area representatives covering 68 U.S. markets with operators looking for bold new brands to diversify their portfolios. With development contracts backed by two large public real estate investment trusts, we’re contracted for the development of 200 commercial centers over the next four years.
