Gateley Legal

We have advised AIM-quoted Franchise Brands Plc, the owner of franchises including Metro Rod, Willow Pumps, Ovenclean and Barking Mad, on its acquisition of Filta Group for a consideration in excess of £49m.

The acquisition was effected through an all-share recommended offer by Franchise Brands.

The acquisition of Filta Group, the market-leading, commercial kitchen services business, will provide the expanded group with a strong platform for future growth and puts them in a very strong position to support their franchisees.

Paul Cliff, partner, who led on the deal, assisted by associate, Sophie Denton and members of the wider Gateley team, said: “We were delighted to advise the Franchise Brands team on its latest acquisition, one that provides them further growth and enhances their offering to their franchisees.”
