A holding company with shared ownership across a national network of development partners, Pivotal Growth Partners creates value and accelerates growth for emerging, high-potential brands. Implementing proven, hands-on methods, we focus on establishing operational excellence and a healthy growth environment to expand small retail brands from 5-20 units to 50-100 units, maximizing value for shareholders.
We apply our combined 50+ years of experience growing acclaimed national brands to develop 3-5 concepts simultaneously, following proven investment and growth strategies and ensuring strong returns for our pool of investors. And we’re looking for joint venture partners to share our success.
After evaluating the growth potential of an emerging concept within a set target arena, we initiate one of three brand equity investments – Growth Equity, Plurality Ownership or Complete Buyout. We then work side-by-side with brand leaders to identify and amplify operational strengths.
Acting as a partner to the brands’ founders or executive team, we establish a systemwide growth-focused culture, streamlining operations and sharpening development processes to create parity. Our system emphasizes alignment of operator and brand interests to initiate smart, sustainable expansion.
Once the brand reaches 50-100 operating units and at least $5M in EBITDA, we’ll initiate a liquidating event, taking advantage of growth multiples and selling the company (in majority ownership) or selling our equity back to the founders at a predetermined buyout (in minority ownership).
We’re selling 50% of the PGP growth platform to partner investors from each of three constituency groups – growth experts, developers and operators. Each joint venture partner investment will earn a percentage of Pivotal Growth Partners and will fund the growth of our individual, high-potential brands.
